Aspire courses

Aspire is a programme of 1,600 free training places consisting of different training modules designed to help make government communications exceptional. On occasion we may charge departments for training and any costs will be made clear before booking.

The programme is designed to be suitable for communications staff at all grades working in central government departments, agencies and arms length bodies.

As places are limited you should make a request for a place with your departmental development advisor who will provide you with a code to make a booking. Cancellations / absentees will be monitored and may affect future allocation of places to departments.
