Discover how we work in partnership with our customers to resolve their issues, and help them to meet their strategic goals

Resolve ASB

New to apprenticeships Resolve ASB were looking for a system that evidenced their high quality, professional approach, and an expert partnership to help them launch their trailblazing new apprenticeship.

“Delivering an apprenticeship programme – especially a new standard – is challenging for the most experienced apprenticeship providers, but when you are new to apprenticeships and setting everything up for the first time the pressure is much higher. We drew up a set of requirements that mattered most to us and set about procuring a system and resource to meet our needs.” Anne Gronan, Project and Partnerships Lead, Resolve ASB

London South Bank University

Learners start using online apprenticeship management system on day one of their programme.

“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, LSBU

Haddon Training

Increased employer engagement after implementing Aptem.

“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.” Natalie Hare, Head of Operations, Haddon Training

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

Edge Hill University

How an excellent approach to change management resulted in quick and successful implementation of Aptem Apprentice.

“There were a number of factors that contributed to our selection of Aptem Apprentice. Ease of use, easy to navigate, easy access to reports and the ability to create bespoke reports, were among our highest priorities. We also needed the ability to create reviews, placements and workshops.” Joanne Sage, Compliance Manager, Edge Hill University

Bradford College

The importance of an end-to-end apprenticeship delivery approach for Colleges.

“The flexibility of this system is invaluable to us and has helped us to improve our systems and processes. The support we’ve received from Aptem has been and continues to be fantastic.” Dominic Scott, CRM/LMS Manager, Bradford College

Leeds Beckett

The plug in and go ILR that transformed a manual process that took a month, into one that takes seconds.

“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


Using Aptem Skills to enable AEB programmes to continue during the pandemic.

“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, UCQ

Keele University

The ability to scale – a prerequisite for a leading provider of degree apprenticeships. Keele University chose Aptem Apprentice because of its deep functionality and the fact that it could interface with their Student Records System.

“Aptem provides a range of functionality which is always being developed – our usage can grow to meet the changing needs of our provision.” Lou Taylor-Murison, Head of Apprenticeships and Experiential Learning, Keele University


Implementing a solution that can be used across multiple programmes types, including AEB and Apprenticeships.

“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

Middlesex University

A partnership approach that has gone from strength to strength, over the years.

“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


Taking the pain out of compliance and reporting.

“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


Why, if it’s not on Aptem, it doesn’t exist.

“Aptem is 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


Lifetime’s approach to procuring an apprenticeship delivery system.

Why to deliver a truly customer-centric experience, you need a flexible delivery system.

 “The ability to produce insightful and easily digestible reports for our employers and their learners is one of our USPs. We run large cohorts and we need to be able to report at a macro and micro level. Aptem’s use of Power BI to generate visually impressive and insightful reporting has real business benefit to us and our customers.” Robyn Harley, MIS and Funding Director at Just IT.

Nottingham University

Sharing advice on successfully implementing Aptem Apprentice.

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
