About the role
This level 2 apprenticeship standard is designed as a minimum 12 month programme and is for apprentices who wish to gain the skills, knowledge and behavioural competences required to work in a retailer role.
The main purpose of a retailer is to assist customers when they purchase products and services, which requires a good understanding of the stock being sold, the variety of ways customers can shop and the ability to process payments, for example, using a till.
This apprenticeship provides an ideal stepping stone into specialist, team leading, supervisory or first line management roles within retail and higher-level training and apprenticeships.
