Retail traineeship

Retail traineeship

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.

Traineeships are very flexible, and LifeSkills/Progressions UK work closely with you the employer to deliver programmes which suit both the needs of your business and those of the learner.

Our Traineeships last up to 14 weeks and include the following key elements:

  • Work preparation training provided by LifeSkills/Progressions UK
  • English and maths support as required, provided by LifeSkills/Progressions UK
  • A high-quality work experience placement with a suitable employer

You will also get the chance to get some local work experience and help you put what you have learnt on the course into practice and get that vital experience on to your CV.

So no matter what type of business you want to work in, a traineeship could be your first step in helping you get your first job or getting an apprenticeship.
