We know it’s important that your delivery system meets your unique needs. We're here to help.

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

We were previously working with multiple systems that were used differently by departments. We wanted one system to create an excellent learner experience, make efficiencies administratively, and give us the ability scale. That’s why we chose Aptem

Sammy Shummo

Group Director of Apprenticeships

We were impressed by the functionality that Aptem offered, as well as the robust plans for future development and its potential as a system that could grow with our organisation. In terms of the support you get from Aptem, you couldn’t fault it

Natalie Hare

Head of Operations

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. The ability to report on all areas of the apprenticeship provision will have a huge impact on our ability to scale and make data-driven decisions.

Suki Rai

Vice Principal, Funding, Data & Compliance

To support with refining our apprenticeship oversight and compliance, we are absolutely thrilled to be working with Aptem as our online ePortfolio provider. All aspects of the organisation will have a clear view of our apprentices' journey with an enhanced enrolment process and streamlined procedures that span the whole apprenticeship.

Director of Business Engagement, Partnerships & Apprenticeships

Case study

Learning Curve Group

The importance of a remote onboarding solution.

“Before Aptem, our onboarding was face-to-face and paper-based. We already felt this method was costly, time-consuming, and old-fashioned. With the arrival of the pandemic, finding another way of onboarding was critical, as we couldn’t access learners in person any more. Aptem Enrol offered a solution that was user-friendly, Ofsted and ESFA compliant, flexible, and allowed for customisation and use with a range of funding schemes.” Daniel Dowson, Director of Funding and MIS, Learning Curve Group

How to build a best-in-class progress review process

Friday 13 September | 11am – 12pm | Register here

Apprenticeship providers are unlikely to need convincing of the benefits of conducting meaningful, motivational, and data-driven progress reviews. But like many of your counterparts, you may be struggling to achieve this in practice. In this webinar, Chris Cherry, Strategic Director at SDN, offers a toolkit to help you make that all-important switch from KSB-led to objective-led progress reviews. The session will include a Q&A, hosted by Louise Doyle from Mesma, with Shenay Cantelo-Poppe, Director of Quality and Apprenticeship Delivery from Future Talent Learning, whose approach to progress reviews Louise describes as ‘the best I have seen’.
