Transform your Team at Scale

Charities, large and small, are feeling the adverse effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, charities across the UK have had to slow their operations placing their workers in precarious situations. If you’re a charity facing these unique challenges, there is a way for you to provide support and reassurance to your team.

Through Strive Training, you can offer your employees and volunteers the opportunity to earn a Level 2 qualification in a range of relevant subjects – at absolutely no cost. Our Employee Upskilling courses are fully funded by the UK government and are designed to equip your employees with the skills they need to face the future. Courses are completely home-based and can be completed in as few as five weeks.

During these uncertain times, you can provide your workforce with the skills they need to navigate a changing work landscape. Whether retraining staff for new positions or supporting your exiting workforce as they transition into a new industry, we can help you give them the support they need.
