Skills Review (BKSB)

If you've enrolled with TAFE Queensland South West, congratulations! We're looking forward to helping you achieve your education goals. The best way for us to help you achieve those goals is to find out who you are, how you learn, and your strengths and weaknesses.

Each student is required to provide a copy of their Senior Secondary Certificate of Education OR complete the Basic Key Skills Builder (BKSB) Skills Review before they commence study funded by a VET Student Loan.

To provide a copy of your Senior Secondary Certificate of Education, please email (include your full name and student number in the email subject).

What is the BKSB?

The BKSB is a Literacy and Numeracy Skills Review that must be completed, and you need to reach a required level set by the Federal Government, prior to final approval of your VET Student Loan and commencement of study.

This Skills Review also helps us identify how to best support you through your chosen course of study.
