About English Anytime
English Anytime is the perfect tool for any educational institution wanting to improve their students’ English skills to increase confidence and improve productivity.
The English product contains everything an organisation needs to improve their students’ achievement levels, while giving you full control and access to assessments and reporting.
English Anytime works by applying learning to real-life situations, allowing knowledge to be more easily applied to day-to-day tasks. Importance is placed on finding out where learners’ individual skills gaps are, helping to bridge the gap between theory and practice in vocational and professional education. Designed around the South African Qualifications Framework (SAQA) and the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) criteria, English Anytime caters for all basic education as well as higher education and training – known as the post-school education and training system.
The English Anytime package contains:
- a dynamic Initial Assessment tool which provides the individual with a current working level. The Initial Assessment is fully interactive and self-marking, and works by adjusting the level of questions depending on the answers given.
- an in-depth Diagnostic Assessment. The Diagnostic Assessment is taken at the level identified by the Initial Assessment, and is designed to identify any gaps in knowledge, which in turn, forms the basis of an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) – highlighting the areas where they need the most help. Students are then provided with access to appropriate Learning Resources in order to fill their skills gaps.
- tailored Learning Resources that specifically reflect the skill gaps highlighted in the Diagnostic Assessment. The Learning Resources provide students with essential, underpinning knowledge in a range of topics and levels.
- self-marking Skill Checks. There are over 150 Skill Checks covering a range of topics and levels, enabling students to close their identified skill gaps and confirm competency in those areas. Passing a Skill Check motivates students by highlighting an important milestone in their development, and encourages them to complete the course.
The English Anytime package is accessed by our fully-hosted online platform, bksbLIVE. bksbLIVE allows organisations to have one central point of access for all users, while allowing learners to access their individual learning portal, anywhere, anytime. The dynamic online platform gives tutors and managers access to reports, data, and tracking facilities, to help assist with lesson planning, learner management, and for inspection evidence purposes. bksbLIVE provides a simple, yet highly powerful system for guaranteeing every student has access to high-quality interactive learning materials.
