We support all our apprentices using different learning techniques for different learning needs including using on line learning platforms for easy access to resources and enabling timely feedback from our teachers and assessors.
BUD and BKSB are two online platforms used to support your apprenticeship studies and application. BUD is the site we use to track and update your application, for you to fill in further personal details and upload any supporting evidence such as qualification cerfiticates. If you meet the criteria for your chosen apprenticeship, you will be added to BUD by a member of the apprenticeship team. You will then receive an email link with your login details, prompting you to visit the site and fill in further information. A member of the apprenticeship team will be able to provide help, should you have any questions or issues with this.
If your apprenticeship application is successful and you are accepted onto the programme, you will then use BUD to submit and keep track of your assignments, receive feedback from your assessor and to track your apprenticeship status.
BKSB is a seperate online site to BUD and is focussed around English and maths assessments. As part of the application process you will receive an email with login details and a link to BKSB, you will then be asked to complete an intial and diagnostic assessment in maths and English. All applicants are required to do this regardless of whether they currently have their level 3 English / maths qualification. If your application is successful and you are accepted onto an apprenticeship programme, you will then use BKSB to complete a series of English and maths modules, alongside your apprenticeship. This is a requirement for all apprentices
