Committed to changing lives
Through learning & work
Aspire-igen is a Yorkshire based social enterprise committed to changing lives for the better through learning and work
For the past 25 years, we have successfully helped individuals, organisations and communities to achieve their ambitions by providing them with the high quality tools, motivation and support they need, whenever and however they need it.
A leading provider of employability training and guidance
The aspire-igen group was formed as a result of the coming together of two of the country’s leading careers companies. Bradford based social enterprise Aspire-i acquired Igen Ltd in the summer of 2014 to create one of the Yorkshire region’s largest providers of employability, training and guidance services.
The very best independent career and training help and advice
Building on the strengths of both organisations, we have developed a strong, resilient and responsive service across the north of England, maximising opportunity for local people, stakeholders and all of our staff. Our combined capabilities and geographical reach enable us to provide an unparalleled level of service across the whole of Yorkshire and beyond, ensuring that young people and adults receive the very best independent careers and training help and advice.
Working in partnership
We are extremely proud of our achievements. We work in partnership with numerous organisations in education, training, employability and skills to generate positive outcomes for a broad range of client groups from all ages and backgrounds. We work tirelessly to support the social and economic regeneration of our region, recognising the skills priorities set by our Local Enterprise Partnerships in order to promote investment in education and training that is properly informed by real labour market demand. This focus not only ensures that our clients are better equipped to understand where their future job prospects lie, but also supports an efficient and vibrant labour market.
We firmly believe that the only limit to achievement is vision, but at aspire-igen, we know that we cannot achieve our mission unless you achieve yours.
It’s all about you!
Trust us to help you and we will succeed in building a better future.
Aspire-igen is extremely receptive about the market, the people and their needs. I am already thinking about new ways of working together. Brilliant work!
