Aspire Development conquers Covid-19 challenges with a trio of new digital products

Halifax based Aspire Development’s world changed forever on the 23rd of March 2020 due to the news of Covid-19. The global challenge required a big mindset shift to survive the sudden drop in business activity.

Aspire, once a business who traditionally delivered 100% face-to-face training quickly began adapting to different ways of working to develop their new Digital Learning Suite at pace.

Since March, Aspire’s focus has been on transferring their ILM approved leadership and management training courses and apprenticeship programmes online to create innovative digital learning products to respond to the needs of their clients and delegates alike.

Alison Wheatly director of operations and quality said “Like many businesses, Aspire has faced some serious challenges as result of Covid-19 from sudden drops in income as we were not able to deliver client contracts face to face to our full team working remotely from home.

In the face of such adversity I am very proud that the team have dealt with these challenges head on and responded to client demands by innovating and developing new products at pace whilst maintaining our high-quality standards. 

At Aspire we have always put the client and delegates at the heart of our leadership and management training programmes and we have ensured this has continued with the development of our Digital Learning Suite which is very user-friendly”

Alison went on to say, “the development of our Digital Learning Suite has enabled us to reshape the business, creating new opportunities for a sustainable future.”


Aspire’s Digital Learning Suite contains three products designed to support businesses improve their performance and managers to achieve personal growth during the Covid-19 crisis and beyond.  The three products are:

1. Short & Smart eLearning - Covid-19 has enhanced work pressures for many individuals. This programme allows for flexible access to ensure the learning is completed at a time suitable to them.

2. Ready to Go Development Programmes - Many challenges organisations are facing in this current climate are finance related. These programmes cover a wide range of leadership and management topics and have been designed for organisations looking to provide cost effective development across their workforce.

3. Made for You Development Programmes - The lockdown restraints have presented obstacles regarding travel for organisations. Aspire’s Made for You Development Programmes unlocks virtual leadership and management development, while maintaining the effectiveness/benefits/quality of face-to-face learning.
