LifeSkills are always friendly and have a flexible approach with our learners. They are supportive and really understand the student’s needs.
On a retail traineeship, 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.
A Traineeship is a programme that combines education and training with work experience, and is focused on giving young people the skills and experience that employers are looking for.
