Reliable and accurate English language testing is essential for improving student learning and raising the quality of language education.

Aptis ESOL can be integrated into education systems, allowing students’ English levels to be measured effectively and efficiently over time.

Aptis for Teens, Aptis ESOL General/Advanced and Aptis ESOL for Teachers offer CEFR mapped assessment at all levels for students and teachers.

Underpinned by the latest research in English assessment, Aptis for Teens and Aptis ESOL test design, scoring and delivery are managed to the highest quality assurance and monitoring standards.


It is thanks to the partnership we have established with the Learning School and Prof Nelson Soares, that it was possible to create the National English Certification Project, which is developed with School Groups and Municipalities throughout the country, giving students the opportunity to certify their degree of proficiency in English, with the quality seal of the British Council. This is a project aimed at secondary school students aged 13 and over and adults interested in obtaining a certificate in English.
