I feel really positive about the workshops and more confident about utilising the online learning hub, and my coach is approachable. The breakout rooms are beneficial for open discussions about tasks set; they promote positive and helpful discussions. I’m finding it easy to complete tasks because I’m given the time during the session to make notes. I feel comfortable with the groups I work with and can contact my coach offline.

My experience with Aspiration Training is excellent. I have got all kinds of support and guidance that assisted me in understanding and acquiring knowledge.
