We are delighted to be collaborating with Joules, the UK-based premium lifestyle brand, to support the development of future retail leaders. BRC Learning launched the BRC Retail Leadership and Management Level 5 Apprenticeship last year as a way of helping retailers maximise the return on their Apprenticeship Levy. And we’re delighted that employees from functions across Joules have chosen to sign up to the programme with the support of their line managers and the business. Joules chose to work with the BRC, and our provider partner Corndel, because of the flexible delivery, the retail customised content, and the high quality support provided by the professional development experts which enables apprenticeships to be delivered successfully in a fast-moving retail environment.  As Joules continues to grow, so does their focus on recruiting, retaining and developing the best possible people, securing a bright future for both the business and the workforce. 

Aleisha Riley, L&D Partner of Joules Ltd said:
“I am looking forward to continuing this journey with the BRC and Corndel. I feel passionately about creating development opportunities for our colleagues here at Joules, giving them continued chances to learn new skills and gain confidence in their roles. I look forward to seeing individuals succeed and progress as a result of this programme.”

Helen Dickinson OBE, Chief Executive of the BRC said:
“At a time when the retail industry is going through a period of profound change we have an opportunity to shape the future of retail by delivering our vision for better jobs - those that are more productive and rewarding for employees. To achieve that vision, it is essential that we make apprenticeships work for retailers, so we are really excited to be working with Joules and welcome the investment they are making in their retail workforce, today and in the future.”
