Degree in Retail Management
Dublin Business School
Supermarket chain, LIDL, have taken their ambitions of finding high quality, well-trained staff, to a new level, with sponsorship of an internationally recognised degree in retail management.
The retail stores have teamed up with Dublin Business School to lure the best and brightest that the prestigious Business school has to offer.
Not only will LIDL cover all costs of the degree programme, students who undertake the course will also be treated as staff members with a salary, healthcare and paid holiday leave.
The course takes place over three years and will be divided into practical and academic elements.
In school-based learning, students will receive extensive tuition in a wide range of business areas such as computers, accounting, communication, consumer law, consumer marketing, marketing and retail management.
Each college-based term will be followed by a period of work-based training with the idea of implementing the skills and information learned on campus in a shop environment.
In their practical tuition, students will be moulded in to managers with extensive training in people management, stock control, customer services and maintaining adequate health standards.
On successful completion of the programme, students will have a great chance of being offered a deputy store manager position with scope for possible promotion beyond this.
The programme is recognised nationally at level 7 by (HETAC) the Higher education and Training Awards Council.
Since its arrival in Ireland in 2000, LIDL has enjoyed enormous success and it looks set to continue as increasing amounts of shoppers spurn the homegrown supermarkets for this cheaper alternative.
Candidates must have a leaving cert or FETAC level 5 award as well as an interest in retail, plenty of interest, motivation and of course team spirit.
