British Retail Consortium launches retail managers' development programme

The British Retail Consortium Training Academy is to launch a Retail Managers' Development Programme this September.

The programme covers topics such as organisational culture, behavioural preferences and the behaviour of others, with an emphasis on experimental learning and behavioural change.

A survey of the BRC’s retail members, carried out by the Academy, revealed that many agree that there is a need for the provision of development and training for store managers and supervisors.

The comprehensive programme will be delivered over a period of a year and is divided into three three-day modules. They contain exercises and simulations that will help delegates to practice their new skills and they will be encouraged to share their experiences with colleagues.

Further details of the programme can be found on the Retail pages of the BRC Academy website –
