Map and directions –

We warmly invite you to the Network Provider Event for the Higher Apprenticeship at Level 4 in Retail Management Skills. As experts in the work-based learning field we would like your help and support.

Newham College of Further Education, with funding from the National Apprenticeship Service, and in partnership with Westminster Kingsway College, ABC Awards and Skillsmart Retail UK is developing a Higher Apprenticeship at Level 4 in retail management.

This brand new qualification is the first of its kind for the sector and has been developed with and for employers facing the challenges and changes of today’s retail industry.

The Apprenticeship framework has been created with extensive consultation with a wide range of retail employers to ensure that its units meet the needs of the sector and will provide the right skills for retail managers of the future.

We are now submitting the qualification to Ofqual for approval and potential funding from the Skills Funding Agency.
However, there is still considerable work to be done; we need to continue to attract employers and we need to finalise the delivery model and begin to plan learning materials and potential e-learning options.

To take this forward, and to ensure that we have enlisted the help and support of experts in the work-based learning field, we would like to invite you to our inaugural Provider Network meeting.

We will be able to reimburse travel costs with prior agreement and lunch will be provided at 1pm.

Yours sincerely
