Sales Apprenticeships

Mercuri’s SALES+ Level 4 Sales Apprenticeship programme has been created by sales experts to ensure your sales professionals have the knowledge, skills and behaviours to sell successfully and consistently. Funded by your Apprenticeship Levy contribution, it is ideal for both experienced and newly appointed sales staff. On completion of their learning journey your sales apprentices will have the confidence and competence to demonstrate sales mastery as well as a professional qualification.

The Level 4 Sales Executive is a higher appprenticeship, it is the equiavalent of the first year of a bachelors programme or HNC (Higher National Certificate).

Remote learning with an apprenticeship

The integrated blended learning approach that we use for the Level 4 Sales Apprenticeship programme not only supports and engages different learner styles it also supports remote learning. Learning that you and your apprentices can do from home! Read about how one of our apprentices has seen their confidence rocket through remote learning.
