Retail, trade supplier and warehousing sector
OAL in the retail, trade supplier and warehousing sector
Retail is an area that has changed and diversified over the past few years due to significant changes in customer purchasing and the growth of on-line shopping. The retail and warehousing industry has been developing to meet this changing need by expanding their retail and warehousing portfolios.
Working with some major retail and warehousing suppliers we have developed a selection of apprenticeships covering all areas of Retail. Subject areas range from Retailer, Retail Team Leader, to Supply Chain Warehouse Operative, Supply Chain Practioner and Trade Supplier.
We have worked with some leading retail organisations to develop these that include, Travis Perkins, Wickes, Royal Mail and Howdens to name a few. In the future we will be expanding into Retail Management and other areas to continually meet the needs of our expanding customer base.
