Our broad range of Business and Finance Apprenticeships provide opportunities to learn about and develop in different key roles and departments within business. You may focus on a specific discipline such as accounting, administration, customer service or marketing, or develop your career through a more general management route. Either way, the training that you receive will give you the knowledge and skills that you need to thrive in the range of business environments.
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.
With a young workforce, the UK’s retail sector is vibrant and offers many opportunities for early career progression.
Each Apprenticeship Framework includes its own specific qualifications for the role and area of business that you work in, but all Apprenticeship Frameworks include Functional Skills in English and Maths and Employment Rights and Responsibilities.
