Southern Co-Op Apprenticeship Case Study We have been working with the Southern Co-Op since 2018. We are on our 6th cohort for Retail Team leader. All learners are in the roles such as assistant or manager for this programme. In late 2019 we also started a cohort on the Retailer Level 2 programme for more junior colleagues. We offer an outward bound experience at Foxlease in the New Forest. Two days, one night with activities and teaching related to the Standard. Co-op fund all travel and accommodation for this. The programmes here are supported very closely by Linda Masterman from the Coop. We tend to meet with Linda monthly to discuss learner progress and any feedback from both sides.
Linda Masterman, Apprenticeship & Learning Advisor
"At Southern Co-op, we have a number of our apprentices on Fareport Training's programme and the service we receive from them is excellent. We're in constant communication with Fareport's Head Office team, where we have monthly update meetings. We also regular speak to the assessors to ensure our learners have the best experience on their apprenticeship journey.
We started working with them in 2018 and we've recently had our first three learners go through EPA, with distinction which is a fantastic result. Long may it continue. Thank you to all the team at Fareport Training."
Thomas King- Retail Team Leader Level 3
"My favourite aspect were the workshops at Lakeside which were very good, well structured and planned. Great standard of workshops and support throughout."
