Phenomenal growth in digital education expected in 2021

Posted on: 16/11/2020

From inception in March 2019 and the launch at the Hampshire Business Show in October 2019, Multi award winning Aspire4Business Academy has seen phenomenal business growth in 2020.

Beverley Poole CEO said “I was fortunate enough to have online learning experience having worked with one of the first multi-media companies in the UK in the 90s. I decided to bring this experience, education and blended learning techniques to a business model and the idea of Aspire4business Academy was born.”  Beverley went on to say “The original business plan offered specialists and trainers a whole new way to collaborate and develop business reach by hosting their skills as eLearning on the Academy platform. Beverley added “During my networking events and business breakfasts, it was clear from the presentations I was hearing that I had to come up with a way to enable entrepreneurial people to share their incredible knowledge.” Hosting business training rooms and schools at a fraction of the cost of many of the DIY platforms, Academy has onboarded 65 new pieces of work this year alone.

From significant investment Beverley developed the new and popular Membership platform to enable a different way for Academy clients to develop their business with monthly programmes. Clients also have access to a Brand Ambassador and Affiliate programme. More recently the ‘behind the scenes’ outsourced Learning and Development area for corporates, charities and franchises was launched, which allows hosting for L&D, skills and mandatory training, onboarding and policies and procedures files all linking back to client websites. A number of UK businesses, educational establishments and training companies are now trialling or engaging the platform for their own eLearning programmes and companies such as Vissensa, GC Youth People Index, A Better Place to Work, Digital Circus and Mixxa all choosing to host their training schools with this new and exciting platform. Local business owner Barbara Cox said “I’m a fan” having been supported to develop her own academy online.

Academy is set for substantial growth again in 2021 and having secured the UK distribution rights of 250 training courses for New Zealand specialists ‘Learning Planet’ offering short video training to corporate teams, Academy will have a range of commercial training to add to the already incredible range of courses being released in 8 parts over the next few months.  Aspire4Business Academy has been successful in marketing the eLearning programmes for a wide range of clients including Leadership, Coaching, Wellbeing, Lifestyle, Hospitality, Training and Education with a focused national and international marketing campaign planned for launch early next year too.

Finally, Academy is proud to announce a Bronze award for Education and Mentoring at the SOStar awards in 2020 following on from the Gold award in 2019 for Innovation and Future Proofing. In the South Coast Tech Awards Aspire4Business Academy were finalists in two of their categories this year including most exciting tech Start-up company and also Tech company of the year, sponsored by BDBPitman and Blake Morgan LLP with The Business Magazine.
