Launching in February 2018, ‘Love to Learn’ is a brand new development programme that will support the development of Supervisors who want to progress to their next step in Retail Management.  It is a bespoke 18-month programme with a Level 4 Retail Management Apprenticeship at its heart.  

If you are a Supervisor who is passionate about building a career in Retail Management and progressing within the company, please register your interest now!

As an Apprentice, you will be working full-time as a Supervisor in one of our stores with 20% of your time (on average 1 day per week) learning through a mixture of:

  • Face to face workshops
  • Online learning
  • Webinars

  • Seminars and relevant industry events

You will be given all of the tools you’ll need to become a brilliant Manager, with an understanding of all areas of a successful Retail business including Business Strategy, Marketing, Merchandising, Operations, Finance and Coaching & Leading.

To support your learning, you’ll be given a personalised e-portfolio where you can access course materials and keep a log of what you have learnt.   You’ll also have access to an award-winning online Management programme called ‘World Class Manager’ developed by leading industry expert, Wayne Clarke. 

You will work with a dedicated Trainer who will provide hands-on support and advice through regular calls, meetings and webinars.

Throughout the 18 months, we will support you and your career development and it’s up to you how quickly you progress.  You may, for example, progress to a Supervisor role within a Top 30 store, or even an Assistant Manager or Manager of a smaller store.   This is a chance for you to grow your knowledge and experience through a blend of learning and practice, and shape a career that’s right for you.
