Would you thrive in a work environment that is ever-changing and fast-paced? A retail apprenticeship is an excellent opportunity to pick up many adaptable skills and a nationally recognised qualification.
With this apprenticeship, you will be able to prove to future employers that you are more than capable of working a retail job to an excellent standard. You can also earn a wage while learning the ins and outs of the industry.
Start here and take your first step into retail.
In retail, opportunities for growth and progression are vast. After completing an apprenticeship, you’ll be one step ahead of the rest.
Due to the nature of retail, every day is different. This has a lot to do with your customers being ever changing, meaning you’ll get to meet a range of different people from a number of different backgrounds. This can make your work life both informative and interesting.
Working in retail requires you to be flexible, sociable, and helpful. You’ll need to carry out a variety of tasks, including stock checks, serving customers, arranging merchandise and building point of sales and displays.
The skills you can develop in a retail apprenticeship are highly transferable and will benefit you in all sorts of career pathways.
The apprenticeship will also allow you to complete maths and English qualifications. These qualifications will make you more employable should you choose to move to another job in the future.

After completing my customer service course, I was amazed by how much work was covered in the units. I also enjoyed the English skills tasks, as it helped me gain more experience with public speaking. Babington’s staff were really helpful and adapted to my learning style.
My level 3 in Customer Service is really assisting me in my role, by managing and developing my team to maximise sales through excellent customer service. Helen at Babington has been a great support throughout my NVQ, offering support and suggestions throughout. She is also always on the end of the line when I need her, she has made my NVQ an enjoyable and stress free experience!
I didn’t really want to go to college after finishing school, and an apprenticeship was best for myself to gain the skills and experience I need. Since I started the apprenticeship I’ve really picked up the ability to communicate well and make people hang on my words. Earning money is also a massive bonus!
Being an apprentice has helped me build confidence in the workplace and gain valuable skills., all the while earning a nice little wage packet. The highlight was just last week when I was told I had 100% completed my qualification. It was a great sense of pride and achievement – what a year 2017 is so far as I have also passed my driving test. I couldn’t have done it without my line manager Rachel, and especially not without all the support giving from my tutor Simon at Babington.
