The retail industry is one of Medway's strongest, yet those who
work in this sector are rarely recognised for their hard work.
As part of the retail champions scheme Medway Council is working
with MidKent College to run the Medway Ambassadors Scheme for
Retail, this will accredit retail workers with NVQ levels 2 and 3
for the work they already do.
The first Ambassadors training scheme in Medway was designed for
the tourism sector, creating for them the first ever training
benchmark. The skills of more than 200 people working in the
tourism sector in Medway were improved and so was the quality
of service they provide.
Following the success of The Ambassadors Scheme for Tourism,
discussions took place between Medway Council, Town Centre
Managers, Employers, and owners of small to medium size retail
enterprises. As a result, the Medway Ambassadors Scheme for Retail
The qualification will train retail staff in marketing, business
development and management. The majority of the qualification is
work-based, meaning the staff can continue their regular duties
