Stronger Starts - Retail Apprenticeship with Tesco

Often thought what it would be like to work in retail? Tesco have announced the launch of their "Stronger Starts Retail Apprenticeship programme", as part of their commitment to help young people achieve a stronger start in life.

Stronger Starts is one of the few apprenticeship programmes that doesn’t require any qualifications or experience as entry requirements. After completing the programme, apprentices gain a Level 2 National Standard in Retail, which is the equivalent of 5 GCSE passes.

For those without a GCSE pass or equivalent in Maths and English, they will gain these during the programme itself.

The transition from education to the world of work can be daunting, so Tesco have a network of people to support apprentices every step of the way, including expert 1-1 pastoral support from the Prince’s Trust, a dedicated Lifetime apprenticeship coach, as well as the store teams.

What can you expect?

  • Salary: minimum starting salary £20,629.44 (36 hours per week)

  • Holiday allowance: 20 days pro rata, plus a personal day – rising to 22 days after 12 months (plus Bank holiday)

  • What you need: No qualifications required

  • Location: Birmingham, Hertfordshire, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Sheffield
