A specialist in the Australian Core Skills Framework

bksb® is a leading provider of literacy, numeracy and foundation skills solutions, and last year over 1.2 million individual learners used bksb to improve their skills. Our market-leading tools have been used by over 20 million learners worldwide, who have benefited from our easy-to-use online assessments and resources.


Our Assessments and Resources have all been mapped to the ACSF - the national reference point for assessing performance in the core skill areas - meaning that all reports, certificates, results, and resources are labelled with the ACSF levels. The Australian version has been localised to reflect the culture of Australia, including names, places, currency, and measurement units, allowing users to get the best experience from our products.
