About Aspire Education Academy

Aspire. It’s what we do.

We are an award winning, post sixteen training provider specialising in providing high quality, learner focused education across the UK. Our aim is to nurture talent, create meaningful opportunities and inspire people to reach their full potential.

We are predominantly a specialist in the delivery of apprenticeships. We are extremely experienced in delivering apprenticeships in Schools, Sport, Retail, Administration and Management. Our Aspire2Work pre-employment course has fantastic success rates at preparing people to find meaningful employment or further study. We also deliver a number of minimum operating standards courses such as First Aid and Safeguarding. Our site is the best place to find your next step, be it an apprenticeship vacancy in Manchester, or financing to support you while you complete a course.

Each year the number of learners we work with increases (2014 was our biggest yet with over 1200 learners enrolled). We deliver learning opportunities from Entry Level to Level 4 across a broad range of subject areas. We offer a wide range of courses and have very flexible delivery methods in order to maximise learner engagement. Our goal is to prepare learners for employment or further study and we have outstanding rates of success and progression.

We are passionate about providing a learning experience that is much more than simply delivering a qualification. Whether it is our Aspire2Work employment preparation course, one of our apprenticeships or one of our 24+ loan courses, our low tutor to learner ratios, adaptable nature and flexible delivery approach is what sets us apart from other training providers.

We wish to continue our success, aspiring to be one of the country’s leading providers of adult education and an institution that both learners and employers can trust.

Our Short History

(2010) Born as Aspire Sporting Academy, Aspire was formed by ex-professional football player John Lewis and professional football fitness coach Jason Murphy. Their aim was to provide engaging, fun and rewarding courses for people who were unfortunate enough to have found themselves out of work, not in education or training.

(2010) Aspire2Work – Pre-employment courses

The model was simple. Using sport as a vehicle to build confidence, self-esteem and belief in each learner whilst also giving them qualifications that would provide a platform to pursue further education or employment.

(2013) Apprenticeships

Having an adaptable approach meant Apprenticeships were the natural progression. Aspire has become one of the leading deliverers of apprenticeship training in the North-West and this continues to grow.

(2014) 24+ Loans

Moving forward we have been extremely enthusiastic about delivering the government’s latest adult education initiative: 24+ Loans. This has been of particular interest to those looking to do a personal trainer course in Bury. Those who are looking for personal training qualifications in Bury are thrilled by our offer to become fully qualified as a Personal Trainer. The course is fully funded by the loan, and you only begin to repay once you are earning £21k a year!
