You’ll see demonstrable activity change in 8 weeks with a sales apprenticeship
Sales leaders are under pressure to achieve short term, demonstrable performance uplift as the economy emerges from hibernation. We frequently hear:
“Apprenticeships are great but they are too slow burn. We need to show results now and that is difficult.”Apprenticeship Myth 1
Another approach being adopted is to potentially risk the rare chance to get off to a good start by simply telling sales teams to ‘get out there and make some noise’. This is an understandable but avoidable mistake. With 60 years of experience improving sales results, Mercuri International know how to kick start the sales engine first time and respond to client needs to get a quick result. The answer? Very simple. The Sales Executive Level 4 qualification.
Don’t just take our word for it:
“Apprenticeships follow a very structured format which does not allow for flexibility.”Apprenticeship Myth 2
