Vital Pet Group has launched The Retail Academy as an online learning tool to support its retail customers.
The Academy is free to Vital customers and provides educational information on brands in the sector, including bite-sized lessons to boost product knowledge, advice on how to drive sales and the chance to win products and discounts in instant-win competitions.
Courses can be taken at starter, intermediate or advanced level. Each course will be marked from either multiple choice or open-ended questions, and participants will be rewarded with a certificate upon completion, which can be printed and displayed in their premises or saved as recorded achievements for sales staff.
Training courses are designed to explain how brands fit with consumer trends and give advice on merchandising. Featured brands include Yarrah and Elkwood with modules from Ministry of Pets, Cath Kidston and iQuties due to be added in February 2022.
The academy is available for Vital customers to access now at www.vitalretailacademy.co.uk
