The course is special and is different from normal college courses. You'll study from your workplace to gain an SCQF Level 5 qualification. There is no day release because our assessors visit you at work instead.

Candidates should be in a job or placement where they are carrying out relevant tasks and responsibilities, which allow them to gather the required evidence. No prior qualifications or knowledge are required to undertake this qualification. Suitable experience/knowledge of the retail industry would be an advantage.
