Selling is a very important process. If they do not sell their products or services, companies can easily go out of business. Good salesmanship involves helping customers to buy a product or service to meet their needs.
As an apprentice you could find yourself working in a range of sectors. You may be, for example, a sales advisor in a retail store environment or a membership advisor in a health and fitness club.
The course consists of a mixture of practical work and theory. You will study the underpinning knowledge of sales and selling techniques and also demonstrate your competence at work. If required, English and Maths will be studied to Level 1.
The topics include the sales environment, sales techniques, understanding legal, regulatory, and ethics requirements, and understanding your own performance at work.
The course has a flexible delivery model and can be delivered at a time and place to suit the both you and your organisation. There is access to experienced tutors and assessors at all times along with the benefit of having peers to support each other. There is an emphasis on the use of ICT to collect evidence and communicate with tutors.
There are no specific entry conditions for this Apprenticeship framework; however, many employers require good (A*-C) GCSE passes in English and Maths.
Students can progress on to the Advanced Apprenticeship in Sales or Telesales or on to a Leadership and Management programme.
