The Basic Key Skills Builder (BKSB) tool is used as an assessment and learning tool to help determine strengths, assess gaps in Literacy and Numeracy and to let students be as independent as possible in working on gaining greater skills and confidence in learning.


Individual data will be collected and used to design learning tasks for students and help to develop strategies to support in achieving learning success. Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) levels will be used to show growth over time and will support learning and skill progression throughout the VCAL course.


BKSB is one part of a multifaceted approach to ensure that each Hester Hornbrook student reaches their learning potential.


The more students can engage with the BKSB tool, the more we are able to tailor individual learning, to build on strengths and support in areas where there may be gaps.
