Comprehensive cloud-based e-portfolio solution

SkillsPortfolio

Unlike anything you have used before, SkillsPortfolio is a user-friendly and comprehensive cloud-based e-portfolio system that comes preloaded with your awarding body qualification standards. It guides your centres through the assessment framework, reducing the cost of qualification delivery and, most importantly, engaging your learners.

No more dull paperwork or filing. With SkillsPortfolio you can upload photos and videos, record discussions and collect observations as evidence for the full qualification spectrum.

SkillsPortfolio includes our unique sampling plans that allow plan periods to be set in advance, capturing all appropriate evidence types within a qualification unit. In addition, links allow evidence to be viewed for every learner and then selected as needed. The sampling plan overview clearly shows the number of pieces of evidence sampled and those yet to be sampled.

SkillsPortfolio seamlessly integrates with SkillsBuilder, so Functional Skills progression can be automatically tracked through the portfolio. It is the first choice for hundreds of colleges, training providers and councils, and is fully prepped for the change in standards when the Trailblazer reforms come into effect.

Our ForSkillsGo app offers full offline access to the Portfolio including the ability to capture live signatures. The app also includes free access to ForSkills’ ground-breaking video resources.
