How SkillsForge can help...

SkillsForge, the product of 20 years of research and development at the University of York, provides the capability to meet the UKBA requirements, through the recording of interactions, as part of SkillsForge's overall solution that provides a clear system for recording, managing and reporting on supervisor/student interactions.

SkillsForge is ideal for HEI's and FEI's that need to provide clear evidence to the UKBA of their students' coursework interactions.

In addition, SkillsForge's additional modules can deliver significant efficiencies in course booking and course booking management, student/supervisor processes and student self-assessment and decision making around their own skills and competencies.
