As APS’s Platinum Partner, we are working alongside them to raise professional standards in sales.

Almost three million people work in sales in the UK. It is one of the largest employment sectors in the economy, but until recently it was the only division in business that did not have a professional qualification-based career path with a professional body to represent it.

This has now changed. You can now embark on a professional career path, underpinned by a range of qualifications, bringing your career in line with other qualified professions, such as law and accountancy or engineering.

The APS launched in 2014 with the vision of gaining Chartered status and has already received cross-party government recognition, along with approval from the examining regulator OFQUAL.

They are a not-for-profit organisation, passionate about supporting, promoting and representing the sales profession, as well as improving the skills, knowledge and ethical behaviour of its members.
