TalentMatch Course Referrals

Please contact to make a referral. We currently have the availablity shown in the table below. This table is updated at the end of every Monday and Thursday delivery day, including the waiting list.

Should a learner miss three weeks of delivery, they will be moved to the next space on the waiting list.


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), or, learners can complete at the delivery centre;
  3. Referral partners arrange to visit the next available session to bring their learner and let us know their English and Maths BksB diagnostic levels and percentages;
  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, if they achieve 60% on their BksB diagnostic at that new level and this will aid their end positive progression.
