Teaching and Learning Methods

The Retail Manager - Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship delivers the required knowledge, skills and behaviour components of the apprenticeship standard and provides the apprentices with the theories, tools and techniques to support their development in their workplace.

The offer is situated in a work based learning context, where assessments for each learning block require the apprentice to apply the learning back into their workplace context. 

The employer, curriculum team and apprentice will work together to ensure effective delivery of the offer and standard.

Where the apprentice has to demonstrate an understanding of their business, the employer will have a clear role in providing the apprentice with details and training in their organisation structure, purpose and KPIs.

Where there is a requirement for the apprentice to demonstrate an understanding of theories and principles of retail management, the curriculum area has a role in ensuring the apprentice receives appropriate training.

Equally, there may be a role for the employer to provide the opportunity for an apprentice to put those theories and principles in to practice in their job.

Underpinning the teaching and learning strategy is an effective and robust pedagogic approach, which considers the requirements of the Standard, relevant discipline knowledge, the aims of the offer and the appropriate academic level of study.

The strategy for delivering teaching and learning for the Retail Manager apprenticeship is firmly aligned to the expectations and practices set out in the sections of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education Advice and Guidance (2018).
