Learning that Works Hard for your Business
The Aston Professional Engineering Centre (APEC) delivers innovative work-based learning solutions, from foundation degree through to masters level. We are able to tailor our delivery to fit organisational needs, we work successfully with companies in the UK and worldwide, and were the first institution in the UK to graduate degree apprentices.
World class companies in the 21st century need world class, professional employees. Supporting students’ professional experience with theoretical understanding, we enable employees to push the barriers of technical excellence, safely and sustainably.
The best way to develop and continuously enhance these skills is not in an artificial classroom environment but in real life. Our students learn in the workplace, where the challenges are the greatest, and where the learning can be made directly relevant to individual and employer needs.
Our innovative approach is based on using a series of real work projects to systematically enhance the skills and practical application abilities of employees.
APEC teaching staff have many years of industry experience, and strong ongoing links with business, industry and the public sector. We have worked with organisations such as National Grid, SSE, E.ON UK, CapGemini and BP. Our programmes can benefit all organisations and businesses from large multinationals to SMEs.
