Client’s viewpoint

“We have received a great deal of positive student feedback and lecturing staff have also commented on how useful the site has been in supporting employability tutorials.

It is highly intuitive and we are able to track all activity and outcomes via the comprehensive management information facility which also allows us to produce useful statistics.

The return on investment has been superb and the customer service second to none.”

An affordable employability solution for colleges

Employability is a vital part of educational courses, traineeships and vocational training. Some courses include work experience placements, many entail online delivery and all require evidence of quality and progression.

Aptem is the market-leading online service that helps you affordably assist large numbers of people, providing employability skills, work placements and job search support.

The service is also suitable for full or part-time students or unemployed learners referred to you by Jobactive or other government funded providers. It can be used across the college, campus or in specific departments.

How does Aptem help?

Aptem is a very smart online employability training and support service that uses technology to reduce costs and enable tracking and reporting. The student goes on a structured learning and activities journey. You can specify this journey to meet your students’ needs. This includes:

  • High quality employability eLearning supplemented by your own content and optionally delivering an accredited qualification, all captured within the integrated ePortfolio.
  • Specially developed assessments to reveal each person’s transferable skills and career interests.
  • Using the power of technology to find relevant vacancies from more than 200,000 jobs posted on many hundreds of job boards and employer sites, including Jora and SEEK.
  • Tracking and reporting course completions and traineeship work experience.
  • Building one or more resumes.
  • Tools to ensure the individual remains organised and focused.

Monitoring progress and activity

As students work through their journey, Aptem automatically tracks usage. Tutors and advisors can also log in and monitor their students’ activity levels and progression. You can interact with them, monitoring tasks as well as suggesting jobs and activities and providing assistance.

Aptem reporting allows you to see your data across the entire college or to drill down to individual tutor groups or specific individuals. You can also exchange data with other college systems.
