What is Aptis

Aptis is a modern and flexible English language proficiency test designed to meet the diverse needs of organisations and individuals around the world.

  • It provides reliable, accurate results about the English skills in your organisation. As a result, you can make better decisions about recruitment, workforce development and training needs.
  • Aptis is flexible and accessible so you can assess people quickly and affordably.
  • It also allows you to accurately test the skills relevant to your requirements and get results fast.


You can choose whether to test all skills (speaking, writing, reading and listening) or just the ones most appropriate for your organisation.

For example, if you are an HR manager in charge of recruitment for front office staff your priority might be to assess English speaking and writing ability. However, if you are looking to assess the all-round language skills of your teachers then you would need all four skills: speaking, writing, listening and reading.

We can advise on the most suitable way to use Aptis for you.

Whether your testing requirement is for recruitment, workforce development or training, Aptis is the forward thinking English testing you’ve been waiting for.
