Retail Supervision



This course is delivered as a two-day workshop

The aim of this two-day programme is to equip existing and aspiring retail supervisors with the fundamental skills, knowledge and competencies required to supervise in a wide range of retail environments.

This programme which was designed by retailers for retailers, will be delivered through practical and interactive workshops delivered by an extremely experienced and competent tutor with significant supervisory experience. The programme will provide illustrations of best practice from not just the retail sector but from a multiple of other business environments.

Learners will be expected to participate and contribute during workshops where they will complete a number of team tasks.

At the end of the programme, learners can expect to see improvements in their overall supervisory skills which they should be able to put into practice in the shop floor almost immediately.

Typically, we require a minimum of 12 learners (and maximum of 20 learners) when delivering the programme. If your organisation requires a small number of places and is prepared to share places with other retail organisations, please contact us for further information.
