Retailing - Apprenticeship Standard for Retail Assistant

An Apprenticeship consists of a standard made up of the following components:

  • Functional Skills – English*
  • Functional Skills – Maths*
  • Functional Skills – ICT* – This gives you the skills you need at work e.g. Microsoft Office

*Some apprentices may have achieved these requirements through prior learning, therefore will not be required to do this part of the apprenticeship.


When apprentices are ready (after 12 months on programme) they will undergo a separate end point assessment which will ensure they have the required knowledge, skills and behaviours to meet the standard.

Some training will be delivered at our centre White Rose House which is on Ware High Street but we will also train and assess you in your place of work. We are your local, specialist, friendly and approachable training provider. 

Entry Requirements

  • Minimum age 16 years.
  • Must not have a qualification of Level 4 or above.
  • Must be in employment and have a contract of employment for the duration of the apprenticeship
  • Must be earning at least £3.50 per hour (apprentice rate) if aged under 19 or over 19 and in the first year of your apprenticeship.
  • Must have the right to work in England and spend 50% or more of your working hours in England.

How to apply

You can apply for an apprenticeship programme at any time but we are planning a July 2018 start date.
