BKSB & Open Awards re-awarded until March 2027

15 May, 2024

Funded functional skills support May 2024 – March 2027

NHS England is pleased to announce that:

  • BKSB (Basic Key Skills Builder), parent company One Advanced, will continue providing self-study software
  • Open Awards will continue to provide exams

Both contracts run until March 2027.

Learners using BKSB will continue seamlessly, as before. Employers that previously used Open Awards can reconnect with the company now and start to book exams for learners.

NHS England hope to refund any exams taken between contracts in April and May 2024 by the end of FY 24-25. Please send invoices to Kirsty.marsh-hyde@nhs.net
