INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED APPRENTICESHIP IN RETAIL SKILLS

As a retail apprentice, your role will depend on your employer. You could be assisting customers on the sales floor of a high street store or handling their purchases.

Alternatively, you could be working in a specialist department and become a product expert, able to help with specific queries.

An artistic flare could point you in the direction of visual merchandising, helping to create window and in-store displays. Or you could work behind the scenes in stock handling; ensuring products are received in the correct quantities and appropriately stored.

You can start on an Intermediate (level 2) or Advanced (level 3) Apprenticeship, depending on your job role and experience. To achieve your Apprenticeship you will work towards a framework of qualifications including, competence and knowledge elements, Employment Rights and Responsibilities as well maths and English (up to Level 2).

You'll work with a Learning Advisor to put together a programme that fits in with your job, to develop the skills you already have and learn new ones. All of which helps you to do your job even better and be ready to go further in your career.

All of your training takes place at work, and your Learning Advisor will visit you to give support, guidance and see how you are putting your new skills into practise

Additional off the job workshops are arranged when required at the nearest LifeSkills Training Centre.
