Why work with the APS
The APS is committed to recognising excellence in sales learning. We have a range of Qualifications and Apprenticeships available to those at any stage of their sales career.
With the changing landscape of the new Apprenticeship levy the APS is in place to support learning providers to help offer programmes that have external verification and APS qualifications as an end goal.
Who we work with?
As a government approved awarding body, we only work with the most credible and professional sales learning providers around the world. The APS awards Approved Training Organisation (ATO) status to those organisations wishing to partner with the APS.
These organisations are then able to offer APS Sales Qualifications or Apprenticeships in conjunction with the APS, delivering great value to customers and sales professionals.
Why we do it
We believe that is sales people are to be regarded as sales professionals, qualifications and apprenticeships are the route towards this. Gaining external validation from an independent body, forming the kite market of what good looks like across all those who work in sales.
Until now, there has not been a recognised qualification or apprenticeship for those who work in sales, developed by employers and government.
What does it do?
APS Qualifications & Apprenticeships stay with sales professionals for life, a qualification that demonstrates a level of learning achieved and recognising the excellence of training delivered to them. These qualifications also feed into APS membership and Continuous Professional Development.
It is a visible signal of the quality of your training and ability to deliver value to your customers and their sales professionals.
What’s great about partnering with the APS?
The APS wants to work with you, the high quality sales learning provider. We have the same objectives, to recognise excellence in training and to reward the individual for evidencing and applying learning in the work place.
In a market that is simple to get into, we feel it is important to recognise excellence and we know that employers are looking for learning providers who can prove alignment to excellence and deliver great rewards for those who engage in their programs.
