First sales apprentices to start work after landmark ruling11.10.2017
From the Association of Professional Sales:
October 9, 2017: The UK’s first ever degree-level Apprenticeship in Sales has been given the green light.
It was a proud moment for everyone at the Association of Professional Sales, who have worked hard for this moment.
The news was announced at Consalia’s 13th Global Sales Transformation conference, sponsored by the APS. Delegates cheered as Jonathan Mitchell, the Institute For Apprenticeships’ deputy director (apprenticeship standards), said: “The very good news is… that [this apprenticeship] was approved at yesterday’s approvals and funding committee, so it’s good to go.
“Each one of these apprenticeships that we approve represents a gigantic investment in skills for the nation.”
The first cohort of undergraduate sales apprentices, recruited by Royal Mail, will begin their training within days.
