APS Accredited Sales Academies
How do you set up an APS accredited sales academy?
APS accredited academies can be established in any organisation which runs internal sales training programmes. We work with existing learning and development programmes and sales leadership support to promote and validate continuous professional development.
Why are we offering to work with your in-house sales teams?
Part of the APS mission is to have more qualified sales professionals, as well as to recognise and reward great learning. APS accredited academies develop these ideals for individuals, companies and the wider profession. Having an APS accredited academy will give new sellers in your business the structure to develop their selling skills and the chance to gain professional qualifications which they will have for the rest of their career. This will help your organisation recruit and keep the best talent in your business. Our Quality Management System (QMS) provides a structure for your in-house training and rewards wider learning.
How does it work?
We will map to your training requirements and reward the skills and behaviour that are important for your business. As an added bonus, if there are other areas you are keen to develop, we can help there too! Our approach encourages salespeople to engage with learning and development and recognises their personal achievement.
What's great about it?
For the first time, valuable sales training and development that takes place in companies around the world can be externally recognised and benchmarked across all sales forces in any business. Most importantly, the individual salesperson will get genuine value, not self-certification based on marking one’s own homework, giving each individual a sense of pride and recognition.
What effect is this having on the sales profession?
The APS is qualifying thousands of sales professionals every year, recognising the learning and knowledge of established salespeople while giving a boost to those just starting out. Already we are seeing a different view of the sales profession amongst buyers who value the new credibility of the sellers they meet. We are also seeing positive results in recruitment and retention. New talent is entering the marketplace and there is stronger engagement in learning and development programmes.
