Your strategic and technical online learning partners

Helping training providers turn their vision into reality

Get Started

We’re passionate about unlocking the potential in online learning for ambitious training providers.

We’re an award-winning online learning agency with a burning desire to help training companies succeed in online and blended training.

Unlike other agencies, we won’t start building your learning content or platform until we’ve shaped your vision for online learning and we all have confidence that this will succeed. After all, we’ve worked with many training providers of all shapes and sizes, so have a good idea what will work (and what won’t).

If you have a burning ambition to grow your training company with online learning, we can help you turn this into a commercial success.

During the COVID pandemic we shifted our training business to work more digitally so it was the right time for us to work with Candle Digital to support us to turn our vision into reality.

Our online programme will be a key part of our business in the future and we are looking forward to continuing to expand our digital offer even further with support from the Candle Digital Team.

Made with love in Yorkshire

We have a small but noble aim – to change how ambitious training providers use online learning to grow their businesses.

We do this by creating high-impact learning experiences that people care about, which is then underpinned with proven commercial thinking, robust technologies and sustainable growth strategies.

Like our hometown of Halifax, we regularly punch above our weight. With clients across the north of England (and beyond) we’re proud of the impact we’ve had on our clients from our base in the Yorkshire hills.
