Life-long learning and apprenticeships are at the heart of everything we do

If you are looking to further your career in childcare and want training and support that is comprehensive, convenient and constantly keeping up with new industry standards and legislation, then you need look no further!

What we do

Online Training

Aptem is an electronic collection of a learner’s skills and knowledge, which is assessed by their Development Coach against a training standard or qualification and replaces paper portfolios.

Perfect for apprentices, work based learners, classroom students and anyone undertaking training, as you can replace paper evidence with videos, photos and voice recordings as evidence of competence and the portfolio is always available, both offline and securely on the web. Assessors and Development Coaches can track learner progress dynamically to achieve timely completions.

The teaching and learning resources are made up of tutorials, videos, good practice examples, presentations, multimedia activities, activity sheets and reading. Everything you need for your course is in one place and you can upload your work to your online portfolio to be marked by your Development Coach.

Your Development Coach will be in contact with you every week and in most cases the contact time with your Development Coach is greater than going to college. It means you have one-to-one learning sessions with your Tutor, rather than having to share your time with a class full of others.

Cutting Edge

Our technological vision is cutting -edge, both within the childcare industry and in the wider online education sector.

We intend to lead childcare training into a new era by incorporating Web 2.0 principles into our virtual learning environment (VLE); in doing so we will equip our learners with the necessary skills to become lifelong, independent learners.

Caring for our planet

We are a green company; we care about making our learner's planet a viable and beautiful place.

We save these amounts per year by virtualising all of our learner and employer processes and contracts. This is only the start. By the end of 2022, we predict that these amounts will double based on our business portfolio continuously increasing.
