Our Stronger Starts Retail Apprenticeship delivered by Lifetime Training, won’t just give you a stronger start towards an exciting and rewarding career with us, it will support you to develop new skills, build your confidence and learn about all areas of retail as well as getting hands-on practical experience of working in different areas of our store. We’ve partnered with The Prince’s Trust, one of the UK’s leading youth charities who are experts in supporting young people to transition into work with confidence. If you have the passion and commitment to succeed, this could be the fantastic opportunity for you, you could even develop further and become a shift leader at the end of your apprenticeship.

The apprenticeship is delivered in store and takes a minimum of 12 months to complete.  You’ll spend time doing a range of activities from completing learning on a tablet device you’re provided with, to putting in to practice your learning on the shop floor.  As part of the apprenticeship programme, you may need to achieve qualifications in maths and English called Functional Skills.  These qualifications are the equivalent to holding GCSEs in those subjects.  If you’ve previously achieved these at Grade C/Grade 4 or above, you won’t need to complete these as part of the programme.

Once you’ve completed the programme, you’ll be awarded your Level 2 National Standard in Retail, which is equivalent to 5 GCSE passes.

What Schools Say About Us

Being part of the Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub has been pivotal to the development of careers provision in our school. The Hub have shared good practice across their members resulting in a stronger focus on good quality provision. The annual event enabled the hub to share their vision of School Improvement Through The Lens of Careers and looking beyond the Benchmarks. It was a fantastic opportunity to share different models of school improvement and strategies to further develop careers provision to enhance the future opportunities of our young people.
