Retail Diploma Level 2 at QUEST

Course description

Apprenticeships are aimed at school and college leavers and lead to an NVQ Level 2 in Retail Skills, C&G Level 2 Certificate in Retailing and key skills. Retail covers a host of businesses from market stalls and independent shops to national chains and large superstores. This Apprenticeship covers a range of skills that can be used across this vast sector. As an 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. From organising displays to learning the crucial aspects of management, the skills gained from the Retail Apprenticeship are transferable to all retail companies. With a young workforce, the UK's retail sector is vibrant and offers many opportunities for early career progression.
