Hello Readers! Welcome back to the ACE360 blog. Today we’re discussing Apprentice Management and how the lives of those involved in the delivery and assessment of apprenticeships can be made easier through use of a simple apprenticeship management system that makes what was previously a confusing and time-consuming process into a simpler, more joined up one!

What is Apprenticeship Management? 

Apprenticeship Management refers to either managing apprenticeships in employment, whilst training, or when handling or assessing an Apprentice’s assessment record.

What Do We Mean By ‘Apprenticeship Management Made Easy’?

At ACE360 we help everyone (employers, training providers and end point assessment organisations) manage apprenticeships together in a secure and efficient way. That sounds simple, but that’s the point! With ACE360 you can say goodbye to lengthy emails, phonecalls, rekeying errors and missed deadlines and hello to an easy, more joined-up way of working through our easy to use cross-platform software.

Apprenticeship management wasn’t always easy! Before ACE360, training providers, employers and EPAOs had to rely on outdated methods of data collection and communication. Now with heightening data protection and changing best practice, managing apprenticeship records in an outdated way (you know, like using paper records…) is increasingly difficult and in some instances could even be illegal! With ACE360, you can rest assured your data is handled in a compliant manner, in a centralised and secure system!

Here are some of the practices to avoid when managing records:

  • Keeping records in an unsecured area which are vulnerable to data breaches and hacking
  • Duplication of documents sent through different email chains by different people
  • Errors through collaboration on different versions of the same documents
  • Communicating records in an unsecured manner – by post, email and text
