“SkillsBuild has been a great complimentary solution for our curriculum as well as for the Skills section for DofE. The modules are engaging, and allow our students to work under their own steam, as well as have fun with their friends. It’s a fantastic collaboration which is giving our youngsters much needed digital credentials.”
