Open eLMS for Apprentices

Learning Management System for Apprentices

How does it work?

Open eLMS for Apprenticeships (formerly Apprentix) is an elearning and e-portfolio management system, built to match the everyday demands of running apprenticeships.

Leveraging over 15 years of experience in creative apprenticeship and elearning delivery for some of the UK’s most prominent employers, Open eLMS for Apprentices has been designed to be the only all-in-one apprenticeship management system that meets all of your functionality requirements whilst remaining simple and intuitive to use.

With the option of an additional 200+ hours of high quality learning you can dramatically lower your delivery costs and increase your margins.

User Experiences

Open eLMS for Apprentices is an e-Portfoilio system which uniquely offers Apprentices, Coaches, Mentors, Assessors and Content Creators unique interfaces, thereby making the system as easy-to-use for all users ...

For the Apprentices:

Easy-to-Use e-Portfolio

Apprenticeship e-learning with Netflix style interface

Open eLMS for Apprentices has a simple and functional user interface, allowing your apprentices to easily access training resources directly, and within a system that is designed to mirror services they already use, such as Netflix.

Multi-Platform Learning

e-portfolio mapped against the UK apprentice standards

Open eLMS for Apprentices can supply relevant elearning based upon individual standards, from within its library of courses, or your own. The system can accept and manage a large variety of resources, including classroom training, mentoring, videos and webpages, and make it easy to locate and navigate between them.

Evidence Upload and Management

Evidence uploaded by apprentice as part of e-portfolio

Whilst apprentices can upload evidence to their own e-portfolio and assign it to a specific standard, the system will seek evidence from the apprentice on a timescale designed to map key achievements against milestones which have been set in accordance with each standard.

For Managers, Coaches, Mentors and Quality Assessors:


apprenticeship  e-Portfolio tracks e-learning with milestones on system via calendar control

When using the e-portfolio system, all stakeholders can track apprenticeship progress, and if they wish to, schedule milestone meetings or send general words of encouragement via integrated communication platforms. Furthermore, Open eLMS for Apprentices can automatically link these meetings to the calendars of both parties.


 e-Portfolio Reporting Apprenticeship Standards

Coaches and assessors can also monitor the progress of apprentices, and have access to full tracking data which is as granular as individual competencies and standards.


Evidence can be signed off on the  e-Portfolio and approved by QAs

Once an apprentice has uploaded evidence of their learning, and work towards a standard, it will be queued in a task list for their assigned manager to review and sign-off. Email notifications can be sent when evidence is uploaded, and when it has been signed off.

For Content Developers:
