How to: Complete a Skills Scan 

If you have this feature enabled, you will be required to complete a skills scan for all learners that go through enrolment, it cannot be bypassed. 

Applicants and trainers can together provide a rating for each Learning Outcome on the Standard and the results of this will enable you to configure the activities and determine any reduction in funding required for prior learning.

The results of the skills scan can be compliance checked and will form the starting point for the learner. These results will be visible in the learner's Learning Plan once signed up, under the 'Reviews' section.

Please note skills scan scores cannot be edited post-enrolment. If a score/s is too high upon compliance check then we advise:
  1. Complete the sign-up again, or
  2. Complete an immediate review noting the newly agreed skill scan levels with the learner and note in any supporting comments the reason for the change. 

The reason this cannot be edited is to aid compliance and reduce the instances of the scores being manipulated if it’s decided they’re too high. 

Inviting applicants to complete the Skills Scan

It is possible to invite the applicant to complete their Skill Scan assessment as part of their self-registration. To do this, you will require the Skill Scan in Self-Enrolment feature switch.

Once the feature switch is enabled, the Skill Scan will be displayed to all new applicants invited to complete self-registration.

Please note, you will need to select the programme in order for the applicant to see the Skill Scan in the self-registration. If you have no selected the programme by the time the applicant starts self-registration, the flow will end at the 'Communication Preferences' step.

Please follow the normal process to invite the applicant to self-register (https://support.bud.co.uk/hc/en-gb/articles/360015936817-Enrolment-High-Level-Eligibility-Invite-Applicants-to-Self-Register) and then select the programme in the 'Programme Details' page.

The applicant will be able to complete their Skill Scan assessment independently. However, you will continue to have visibility of the Skill Scan, even if you have included it in self-enrolment. You will be able to review the applicant's scores, and edit them where you require.
