The independent retail sector is a sector defined as “at risk” at both the European and national (UK) level. A number of recent initiatives, from benefactors such as the European Social Fund (ESF) and the University for Industry (UfI) have identified training and development of this sector as a priority objective in terms of improving economic prosperity, competitiveness and employability. Seeks to review the training needs and the types of training and development currently available to this sector in terms of materials and learning delivery systems. The purpose of this review is to audit current provision and disseminate the findings for the benefit of educational institutions and training providers who are currently involved, or wish to be involved, in sustaining the independent retail sector through training and development.
