Apprenticeship standards for retail


retailRIGHT is working closely with employers and universities to develop a suite of retail apprenticeship degrees.

The degrees will help retail staff at all levels benefit from higher education and will enable businesses to use their levy monies effectively.

The apprenticeship degrees will bring the world of business and education closer together by developing the high-level technical skills needed for retail jobs of the future. The standards also provide a progression pathway to develop new and existing employees. 

  • Level 6 Retail Leader Apprenticeship Degree has been approved for delivery in September 2019.
  • Level 6 Buying and Merchandising Apprenticeship Degree is currently in development.
