Case Studies

Providers across the UK are using Aptem to simplify their apprenticeship and vocational training delivery. 

In-depth Case Studies


“ One of the biggest plusses of Aptem was the fact that we could use it to do all of our submissions. Aptem has now proven to be our one central place, our digital bible if you like.”

Steven Willis

CAS Operations Manager, Middlesex University


“The fact that we went live on the day we committed to going live was, for us, a great achievement, particularly given the complexities of the build.
From a management perspective, it has given us access to a huge swathe of live reports, something we didn’t have before. And that allows us to have real-time reporting and real-time performance management of our staff.”

Ryan Palmer

Director of Quality and Impact, Central YMCA

“I love Aptem. In the past, I’ve worked with paper-based front systems, Maytas, a separate ePortfolio system and a separate
request for certificates system. What Aptem gives me is all that from start to finish.”

Lisa Hurle

Head of Compliance, Corndel


“Prevista deliver quality vocational and employability provision to young people and adults and we have successfully, extensively used Aptem for over five years. Aptem is a transformational platform which de-risks compliance and Ofsted, puts providers, learners and employers in the driving seat – it is a true end to end solution rather than one based on ‘’legacy’’ platforms and is ahead of the curve. Put simply, Aptem is the best technology platform in the sector. Aptem is a key component of our Apprenticeship growth plans. The MWS implementation team is exceptionally helpful and take the pain out of new programme roll-outs.”

James Clements Smith

Managing Director, Prevista


“I’m delighted with the difference that Aptem is making to Bucks New University’s apprenticeship business. Aptem is complementary to our existing systems, streamlining processes and eliminating data complexity. It allows us to capture and map evidence for our programmes, and has made submitting ILR returns for funding a breeze. To top it off, the MWS implementation team have really supported our transition to Aptem and have been a pleasure to deal with.”

Steve Dewhurst

Previous Director of Apprenticeships, Bucks New University


“Aptem helped Ada to show Ofsted that we were implementing measures to support our students, that we had students in the system and helped us demonstrate our successes. It also helped us show the Inspector that we were making positive changes in the areas where we had room for improvements. Ofsted were impressed by the features Aptem had to offer. They liked the percentage barriers, where you map them against the Standard and it shows student progress.”

Hazel Colbé

Head of Apprenticeship Programmes, Ada National College for Digital Skills

“If it’s not on Aptem, it’s not auditable, and it doesn’t exist. It’s a key part of our organisation, from being a holding area for our policies, compliance, and our ability to add, amend and create what we need for our future business.”

Mark Foster

Head of Operations, EGS Training

BlackRock Training

Listen to Peter Brooks, Managing Director at BlackRock discuss the benefits of using Aptem, including the integrated nature of the platform, ease-of-use for learners and its comprehensive data management.
