The award-winning end-to-end apprenticeship delivery platform. Used by nearly 200 training providers, universities and colleges

Want a quick overview?

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. We also save a lot of time by using Aptem, as we don’t need to enter the same data twice, and staff only have to learn one system that does everything. This 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

At Lifetime we believe that everyone deserves to learn the skills they need to reach their full potential, and we want to make sure that our technology solutions support this vision for every learner. Having completed an in-depth review of the market, we know Aptem is a platform that will enhance our ability to provide an exceptional learning experience for our learners. We are excited to introduce Aptem to learners and employers in the coming months.

Carl Cornish

Chief Operations Officer

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.

Sammy Shummo

Group Director of Apprenticeships

Aptem’s end-to-end design has helped to streamline our processes and workflows, and removes complexity from our delivery. Without the need for multiple systems to manage our programmes, we’re able to improve administrative efficiency, refine our programmes, and provide a better learner experience.

Chris Garnett

Quality Assurance Coordinator

We chose to work with Aptem, after looking at several alternatives, as the entire learning journey (from sign up through to EPA) is embedded into the platform. This saved us money as we could consolidate a number of existing systems in one. Additionally, the investment required demonstrated exceptional value for money and the level of customer service is refreshingly ‘on it’.

James Taylor

Commercial Director

With Aptem, all departments will be able to use a single platform, with consistent processes and structure of logging activities. We were particularly impressed by the enrolment functionality within Aptem, with its ease of use for both apprentices and trainers. We can now report on one platform on all areas of the apprenticeship provision, which has a huge impact on our ability to scale and make data-driven decisions.

Case studies

Aston University

How adopting an ROI and Critical Success Factors approach to selection and implementation has paid dividends for Aston University.

“In Aptem, we found a tool that is truly adding value to the service that we’re delivering. From what I see in the industry, those that have chosen Aptem are thriving in their apprenticeship delivery as a result.” Terry Hodgetts, Director of Corporate Client Solutions, Aston University

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 that include Zoom, BKSB, Skills Forward, Learning Records Service and Cognassist.

Additionally we have open APIs for third-party systems. Our current customers have integrated the likes of Salesforce, SITS, Banner, Quercus, and customer websites.

Aptem supports Single Sign On, so once you are in a system you can access Aptem without additional log-ins.

Strategic decision-making using data

When you use Aptem your data is held centrally, allowing you to easily report and analyse. There are a number of built in reporting tools along with more detailed Power BI Dashboards within Aptem and we’re adding to these all the time.

Aptem Intelligence Dashboard

Synonymous with Aptem’s data-driven approach, the Aptem Intelligence Dashboard turns ESFA apprenticeship reporting data into useful, digestible reports, using Power BI.

It is a repository of sector expertise allowing Apprenticeship providers to view competitive market positions, identify opportunities, and make data-driven strategic decisions. It is available for everyone to use.
