Carl Cornish
Chief Operations Officer, Lifetime Training
Aptem allows us to onboard learners and complete compliance documents remotely and efficiently, which has been imperative in the current climate and reduced the time spend on admin. With Aptem’s distance learning functionality, we can continue to provide our clients with excellent training online.​
Paul Wileman
CEO, B-Skill
When we were looking for a new employability system, we knew we needed something that was intuitive, had a great user interface and was flexible to our needs. Compared to other providers, Aptem Employ for Kickstart ticked every box. With the system, we’re able to manage all of our participants’ individual journeys in one central place. We can manage large amounts of data easily and securely, as well as having an automated audit trail. We particularly like the integrated job-search function and the app that allows participants to manage their progress in their preferred manner. It truly is an end-to-end solution that works for participants and coaches alike. Our implementation process was very positive, and we were provided with excellent support, especially from Peter Earls.
Lois Poynting
Performance and Quality Manager, Pembrokeshire County Council
As a platform, Aptem gives us the functionality to manage our apprentices and help them to build quality portfolios for their End Point Assessment. Our faculty, employers, and our learners, really benefit from having all of their information in one central location, and we can use the various reporting, reviews and various functions to track the progress and engagement of the learners. The regular updates to the system provide us with continued flexibility as how we use the system evolves, and enhance our operations and management of our programmes and learners. I'm really grateful for such a positive and knowledgeable Implementation Consultant, who got us started with using Aptem in the first place as a new provider, and who has been on hand to support and provide help when needed!
Lauren Baldock
Operations and Quality Assurance Manager, NCH at Northeastern Limited
Aptem Employ for Kickstart has provided our employability coaches with an interactive system that is really user- friendly and easy-to-understand. The implementation process was supported by Aptem's high- quality implementation consultants who guided us through the process quickly. The flexibility and adaptability of the system are some of Aptem's greatest features.”
Rob Jackson
Kickstart Traineeship Coordinator, Learning Curve
We are very happy that we selected Aptem Apprentice. The programme director can log on and assess the application suitability and take it from there, which saves a lot of time. Having the top-level overview of our apprentice’s progress and the ability to generate reports is great. The ILR functionality is incredibly invaluable. This flexible system saves us considerable time and effort and delivers a high level of insight.
Ruth Eccles
Head of Professional and Workplace Learning, University of Nottingham
Whilst investigating the market requirement, it because clear that Aptem was a standout candidate in terms of bringing it all together and reducing the administrative burden. They truly understood our position and needs as a new entrant to the market.
Lewis Small
Project Manager, We Are Digital
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
We have worked with Aptem for a number of years and consider them to be 'Best of Breed' when it comes to delivering a product to support employability programmes. Aptem Employ can be easily configured for our workflows, and their roadmap for continuous improvements is impressive. Aptem Employ is an affordable system that will be continuously updated at no additional cost to ourselves.
James Clements Smith

Aptem has allowed us to implement a paperless onboarding process that has saved us considerable administrative time and effort, freeing us up to improve learner experience and ensuring audit compliance with enrolment documents. The Aptem team are really helpful and proactive and we look forward to continuing to work with them.
Karen Morris
Associate Director of Apprenticeships & Business Development, Farnborough College of Technology
Aptem Enrol is user-friendly, flexible and allows for compliant remote-onboarding. We anticipate that it will save us administrative time and money and save on mileage and printing costs, meaning that all-important first meeting with the learner can be focused on teaching and learning.
Daniel Dowson
Director of Funding and MIS, Learning Curve Group
I’ve worked with other ePortfolios in other companies and Aptem is simple and intuitive to use. We have had similar feedback from learners. Aptem is future-proofing our delivery and it’s working brilliantly.
Kelly Pattison
Quality Manager, University Centre Quayside
Many thanks from the Sigma team on the wonderful Aptem interface for learner view. Very easy to use the system, well laid out and all required documents are easy to locate. Excellent feedback from us.
Tricia Allison
Head of Health and Social Care, Sigma
Aptem Employ is an intuitive and highly user-friendly product, that can support our amazing team and delivery partners. We wanted a system that we could get up and running quickly, and easily customise to our requirements.

Aptem…thank you for existing!
Emily Walsh
Apprenticeship Administration Manager, University of Cambridge
Aptem ensures the smooth delivery of our apprenticeship programmes and reduces the complexity of ESFA, Ofsted, DfE and GDPR compliance. Aptem simplifies many of our processes, significantly reduces costs and saves us plenty of time allowing us to focus on creating high-quality learning journeys. The Aptem team is a pleasure to work with.
Caroline Gascoigne
National Qualifications Manager, DFS
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.
Mushall Khan
Chief Operating Officer, Corndel
Over time we are customising the system to our requirements. The flexibility of this system is invaluable to us and it has helped us to improve our systems and processes. Issuing and tracking compliance documents has been so much easier – our Compliance Officer loves Aptem. She can see everything in one place and the status of each item. Overall it’s very easy to use the system and find the things we need.
Dominic Scott
CRM/LMS Manager, Bradford College
Aptem has allowed us to merge our MIS and our learner portfolio systems into one place, so we can now truly go out and say we have an end-to-end system for our learners and employers. It has also given us our first foray into ePortfolios for our education learners, so that’s a huge step forward. We now have real-time reporting and real-time performance management of our staff.
Ryan Palmer
Director of Quality and Impact, YMCA
I just wanted to say how impressed we have been with the development and implementation of the Aptem system for our organisation. Over the last few months I have been dealing with Peter Earls who has been really responsive to our many questions and system tweaks, the training and advice given to myself and the team has always been delivered to a high standard.

You have a very dedicated, passionate and supportive consultant in Peter and we would just like to say a very big thank you to Peter and look forward to seeing the benefits Aptem will bring us in the coming months once all our data is in place.
Kelly Medley
Operations Director, Aspire Training Team
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, HTFT Partnership
We chose Aptem having assessed a number of systems, because of its vast capability. The breadth of what it can do is impressive and it could properly integrate with our student record system - Banner. Many of the other systems we looked at offered workarounds rather than a full integration. Additionally the capabilities of other systems were narrower than Aptem.
Ian Maude
Head of Apprenticeships, Leeds Beckett University
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
Aptem provides a comprehensive software platform that enables us to focus on designing and delivering high quality apprenticeships.
Pollyanna Magne
Associate Professor & Educational Developer, Programme Director: PGCAP, University of Plymouth
A quick note to say how brilliant and supportive your implementation consultant has been in supporting us in getting Aptem up and running and useable. He’s virtually held my hand all the way, with the patience of a saint! He really is a credit to your organisation.
Sara Goldie
Managing Director, Leaders in Business
Both the changes in our learners’ mindset, to take ownership of their job-search process, and the insight provided by the excellent reporting tools, have resulted in an increase in usage and uptake in a very short space of time. That combined with the additional benefits of improved overall business performance that the Aptem Employ system brings, is extremely encouraging.​
