What is STRIVE? STRIVE stands for the Student Traineeship and Research into Vocational Education. It’s an overseas work experience placement for students studying Foundation Degrees in Early Years or Learning Support. The scheme is offered by the University of Worcester in partnership with Halesowen College.
