An apprenticeship is a national work-based training programme designed for each industry. Apprenticeships are a great way of earning and learning at the same time. Retail apprenticeships are for people looking to work in retail and who want to learn the skills needed for a successful career in the industry. As an apprentice you will develop retail specific skills and knowledge while learning core skills, such as communication and numeracy, as well as becoming aware of your rights and responsibilities as an employee.
Job roles include working as a senior sales assistant, craft experts (coaching, supervising, style advisors, personal shoppers), any retail supervisor, team leader, department or store manager.
