Employer Feedback

“We are delighted to have employed an Apprentice with the help of Aspire. The quality of applicants was excellent and the young man we appointed is a great asset to our organisation. We will definitely be employing Apprentices in other areas of the school.”

Lorna Phillip
Director of PE, Hathershaw College



“Having 3 young Apprentices has made a huge difference both in and out of school.  Having a fresh, young face for the children is amazing as the children have been bonding really well with them and opening up to them in the classrooms. They are fantastic role models and we would recommend them for every school." 

Rebecca Jagger
Curriculum Lead for PE, St Francis RC Primary School, Gorton, Manchester

"So, I have just finished a three-week course in Banbury, and I wanted to say thank you so much to Chris Baguley and Aspire. I cannot recommend this course highly enough. 5 nationally recognized qualifications, but so much more than that. My confidence has improved vastly, I've met some amazing people, and I now feel I have the confidence and skills required to get a job. The course was tough but fun. I learned a lot, and had a laugh every day." Paul

"If you are given the opportunity to train with Aspire, please take it. I am in my first week and already I feel more confident. The work is fun, the trainer is down to earth, which makes it a more comfortable environment. I am loving this experience" Paul

 "Well, that 3 weeks went by way too fast for liking. Had a great time on the course and because of this, my confidence has improved a hell of a lot. Mark Blackburn and John Trowbridge were amazing tutors and I can honestly say that I am actually going to miss the pair of them as they made the sessions fun and they were a breath of fresh air from the tutors that I've had in the past" Claire

A massive thank you to you all!" Nat

 "Just to let you know I really enjoyed the concept of the course as it showed me new skills and gave me another NVQ but this time taking part in activities was something I have wanted to do. I really found Hari was such a great tutor, easy going and down to earth and explains any concepts if you don't understand them"
