The complete e-learning solution for Functional Skills and GCSE

Skills Builder is a comprehensive initial assessment and diagnostic solution. It enables you to develop your learners’ skills with industry-leading assessments and access to the highest quality curriculum, while collecting the data and evidence needed to demonstrate compliance and learner progression.

Intuitive initial assessment

Skills Builder will determine your learners’ current level in Functional Skills, GCSE English and maths, and Essential Digital Skills. Plus, there are assessments for ESOL, personal learning and thinking skills, and more.

Track the entire learner journey 

With a tracking system and reporting dashboards that capture results at learner, group, and institution level, you can measure the distance travelled by each learner. You’ll also find options for target setting, e-portfolio evidence capture, and integration with other third party platforms.
