About Smart Apprentices

Smart Apprentices is designed to provide you with innovative software to aid your digital learning journey. In the past 10 years, we’ve transformed from one product to five – including a virtual learning environment (Smart VLE), an eportfolio (Smart Assessor) and an end point assessment tool (Smart EPA). We believe the learner should be at the heart of our products, which is why we’ve designed them to support your apprentice every step of the way.
