How our customers are benefitting from Aptem

LSBU has gone from learners having to wait up to five months to start using an online apprenticeship management system, to having it available on day one of their programme. That makes a huge impact on their engagement and progress.

Aptem has been one of the key drivers behind Corndel’s growth, as it has increased our operational efficiencies and simplified many of our processes. It has enabled us to spend more time focusing on quality, creating engaging learning journeys that meet the needs of our customers and their workforce.

Richard Bridge, Director of Learning Technology,

It used to take us weeks of chasing – often up to 40 phone calls and emails – to get one apprentice onboarded. Now pretty much the entirety of that process is automated and streamlined within Aptem. That’s an enormous benefit.

We formed a Board for our apprenticeship provision, which is there to ensure our compliance obligations are met. It is therefore important that they have access to both quarterly and real-time compliance MI. The embedded Dashboards in Aptem focusing on Quality, Ofsted, Compliance and Funding are indispensable to us.

Efficiency and consistency through open-API standards

A single source of data that works across the entire delivery is essential to achieve accuracy and ‘one version of the truth’. Aptem offers a range of standard integrations: EPA Pro, Skills Forward, BKSB, Cognassist, EQUAL, NAS, Cronofy and PRaP. Additionally, we have an open API for third-party systems to integrate with. Our current customers have integrated the likes of Salesforce, SITS, Banner, Quercus, Tribal ebs, and customer websites. We are also offering a Communications Connector with Microsoft Teams.

Aptem supports Single Sign On, so once you are in a system you can access Aptem without additional log-ins. Aptem enhances security by using Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and also supports Multi-Factor Verification (MFV) for document signing.


Q. Can we brand the system by adding in our logos?

Yes, you can add in both yours and your employers’ logos.

Q. Can I change the language or terminology in the system?

Yes, you can change the terminology in many areas of the platform. For example, if your organisation refers to a learner as a student, or a coach as a trainer.

Q. Can we make changes mid-programme and track functional skills and qualifications separately?

Yes, you can make ad hoc changes throughout a programme and apply these at an individual, cohort or programme level. You can also set up Functional Skills and other qualifications as subprogrammes so you can personalise learners programmes at scale.

Q. Can I use Aptem for subcontracting and use multiple UKPRNs?

Yes, you can manage multiple ILR returns with Aptem, reflect your organisation’s delivery model using Group Structures, and make operational efficiencies by using Aptem to manage changes via workflows.

Q. Can you integrate with other registration systems and CRMs?

Yes, we offer open APIs that enable integration with systems including SITS, EBS, Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics.
