Young man working at a supermarket checkout

Working with trusted training providers and organisations throughout the UK, we partner with retailers to support active jobseekers into a new career in retail. Through the delivery of short courses, we help young people to believe in a brighter future by developing the key life and work skills they need to be ready for their new role.

Our national traineeship scheme is a great way for 16 to 24 year olds to gain the relevant work experience and skills required for their new career. Over the course of eight weeks, applicants will be in work learning all aspects of the role. With close guidance from current staff and a one-to-one weekly session with a skills tutor, they’ll cover functional and digital skills as well as customer service principles.   

For more information about how the programme can work for your business, please contact Aaron Hunt
