Tesco Creates Fast Track Manager Training Scheme For School Leavers

  • New recruits gain three A-Levels through on the job training
  • Scheme fast-tracks recruits to senior management by the age of 23

Tesco, The UK’s largest private sector employer, today announces the launch of a new training scheme for school leavers – offering an ‘earn while you learn’ alternative to the mainstream education system.

The comprehensive development scheme, being introduced in March with the first group of 60 young people across the country, offers a fast-track management scheme with potential to progress to Store Manager level by the age of 23 – on a then expected salary of £50,000+.

David Potts, Retail Director at Tesco comments;

“Training is key at Tesco and developing our leaders of the future is a fundamental part of our success.  Although graduates are a vital source of our future leaders, we know there is a great talent pool of younger workers who can progress within Tesco from pre-university entry points too.  These schemes help us to ensure that we are training our colleagues at every level of the business and helping them get on.”
