Our retail trailblazer programme of Food Level 2 Retail Apprenticeships is designed to set you up for success, and propel you into the world of retail. Team Leader, Daniel Hooper, told us what to expect.

Last month, we celebrated the graduation of 24 apprentices – the first in the country to achieve Level 2 and Level 3 Retail Apprenticeships since Retail Standards were introduced in 2017. This month sees the start of our biggest intake of Food Store apprentices yet – a great opportunity for our colleagues and communities.

Claire Clews and Kirsty Bruce from the Leadership, Talent and Learning Team (LTL) received a royal welcome at the Garden Party at Holyrood Palace for their work transforming the training experience for volunteers.
