Strive Training - Croydon Centre
I would definitely recommend Strive. It is a great opportunity to gain valuable skills and interact with likeminded people for free. The team are all very supportive and continue to provide guidance even after the course has been completed.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Strive to anyone who wants to achieve better prospects. One of the main benefits has been enriching my knowledge and it will benefit me as I hopefully start a new job in the next few weeks.
Joining Strive was the best thing I have ever done, it gave me amazing opportunities and great confidence!
My experience with Strive Training has been extremely positive and I would not hesitate to recommend them, in fact, I have recommended Strive Training to a couple of people already!
