Retail


Retail Programmes

Retail is one of the fastest growing sectors and covers a vast range of businesses, from market stalls and independent shops, to national chains and superstores. As a Retail Apprentice you could be assisting customers on the sales floor of a high street store and handling their purchases or working as an expert in a specialist department, dealing with specific enquiries. 

You may be in a creative role such as visual merchandising, helping to create window and in-store displays to drive sales or you may choose to work behind the scenes on stock handling, ensuring products are received in the correct quantities and appropriately stored. You could develop skills in sales, and marketing, essential for any business, or you could learn technical or business skills such as hairdressing or beauty. From dealing with stock deliveries to organising displays, the skills gained from the Retail Apprenticeship are transferable to all retail companies.
