Progress Course Referrals

Please contact to make a referral. We can generally make a place immediately available to a new learner. To ensure that we can maintain this high standard, should a learner miss three weeks of delivery, they may be temporarily removed from the course until their Coach agrees they are ready to re-commit.

* 130 learners are funded until March 2022, this averages 3 referrals per month * 

The aim is to provide learning opportunities at all geographical locations, it is NOT to have each provision filled

The referral process is as follows:

  1. Referral partners email us to request a ‘BksB‘ login as they believe they have a learner ready to engage in developing their English and Maths skills;
  2. Learners complete the online BksB English and Maths initial and diagnostic assessments with the referral partner (we will provide login details);
  3. Referral partners arrange to visit the next available session to bring (a) learner (b) completed referral form
  4. Learners visit at the very beginning of the session with their mentor and have a 2-2-1 conversation before the other learners arrive: previous learning, risks etc., progression intentions (“warm handover”);
  5. Learners leave and return the following week to start their formal learning.

End of Course Progression

Where a learner sucessfully completes a formal exam (qualification), they will be most welcome to attend to complete the level above, once they achieve 60% on their BksB diagnostic at that new level.
