Apprenticeships in Retail Skills

Retail is the sale of goods and services from individuals or businesses to the end-user. Retailers are part of an integrated system called the supply chain. A retailer purchases goods or products in large quantities from manufacturers directly or through a wholesale, and then sells smaller quantities to the consumer for a profit.

Retailing can be done in locations like stores, shops or markets, door-to-door or by delivery or Online retailing, a type of electronic commerce used for business-to-consumer (B2C) transactions and mail order, are forms of non-shop retailing.

Learning through apprenticeships can help staff develop skills that are essential to create a successful career in the industry.
