Success for students in EVE Plantmarket

EVE Plantmarket have recently had a number students' work verified by an External Authenticator and they will all be getting their well-earned certificates soon. Most of the students have progressed on to further training or the employment market.

These students had to show great resilience and perseverance adapting to changes and obstacles that COVID-19 presented to them. The team in EVE Plantmarket and indeed EVE are super proud of all the students and can’t wait to catch up with them all! EVE Plantmarket hopes to have a Certification day for the students in the coming month.
