Aptis the new English assessment tool for companies from the British Council

Use it to improve your recruitment, development and training processes

Do your employees use English at work? Do you know how good the level of their English is?

If you want to know it, you’ll like our new English Assessment tool Aptis. Aptis is designed to help you asses the English knowledge in your company. It tests all four language skills: writing, speaking, listening and reading. You can choose the skills you want to test and customise it to your exact needs. It will help you:

  • select the best candidate in the recruitment
  • develop the learning and development needs in English
  • save time and money with courses in English

Aptis can be taken on the computer or pen and paper and can take place in your organisation. Results are in line with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/cefr/) and can be available a couple of days after the test have been taken.

Aptis has been developed by the British Council, an organisation with more than 70 years’ experience in English assessment. The British Council is a global leader in English testing, so you can be sure choosing Aptis is the right decision for your organisation’s English development needs. Also more than 25.000 candidates have taken exams with us here in Slovenia.
