For this apprenticeship management case study, we caught up with Sammy Shummo, Group Director of Apprenticeships at London South Bank University. As part of the LSBU Group alongside South Bank Colleges, we wanted to hear about their reasons for selecting Aptem Apprentice.

Here’s what Sammy had to say about their ‘triumphant’ previous implementation of the platform at London South Bank University. He also shared their reasons for choosing to implement the solution to support the college:

Proven success:

The success story of London South Bank University’s adoption of Aptem serves as a powerful testament to the platform’s efficacy. Demonstrated positive outcomes, such as improved efficiency, streamlined processes, and enhanced student engagement, provide a strong incentive for South Bank Colleges to follow suit.

Integrated solutions:

Aptem offers a comprehensive suite of integrated solutions tailored to the specific needs of educational institutions. From student management to curriculum delivery and assessment, Aptem provides a seamless and cohesive platform. It can address multiple facets of educational administration in a unified manner.

Scalability and flexibility:

As a modular and scalable platform, Aptem can adapt to the unique requirements and evolving needs of South Bank Colleges. Whether managing a few dozen students or several thousand, Aptem offers the flexibility to scale operations accordingly. The platform remains effective as the institution grows.

Enhanced student experience:

Aptem prioritises the student experience. It offers intuitive interfaces, personalised learning pathways, and robust support services. By leveraging Aptem, South Bank Colleges can create a more engaging and dynamic learning environment that fosters student success and satisfaction.

Data-driven insights:

Aptem’s robust analytics and reporting capabilities empower educators and administrators with actionable insights derived from data. By harnessing these insights, we can make informed decisions. We can also identify areas for improvement, and optimise educational outcomes effectively.


Aptem’s cost-effective pricing model and efficient resource utilisation make it a compelling choice for educational institutions seeking to maximise their return on investment. By streamlining administrative processes and reducing overhead costs, Aptem will enable us at South Bank Colleges to allocate resources more efficiently while delivering exceptional value.

Continuous support and innovation:

Aptem is backed by a dedicated team committed to providing ongoing support, training, and innovation. By partnering with Aptem, we can leverage the expertise and experience of a trusted technology provider. This allows us to stay abreast of emerging trends and best practices in education management.

Sammy concludes, ‘In summary, our decision to adopt Aptem is driven by the platform’s proven track record, comprehensive capabilities, scalability, student-centric approach, data-driven insights, cost-effectiveness, and ongoing support. By embracing Aptem, we aim to enhance operational efficiency, elevate the student experience, and achieve their educational objectives effectively.’

Working together

We want to say a big thank you to Sammy for this apprenticeship management case study. We are delighted to welcome South Bank Colleges to Aptem, and are excited to see the many benefits that are already being realised by the university replicated within the college over the coming years.
