The Co-op is one of the world’s largest co-operatives, offering food, funerals, insurance, electrical and legal services. Owned by millions of UK consumers, approaching 4,000 outlets, and over 70,000 colleagues.

The Co-op sees Apprenticeships as the “Golden Thread” to its talent strategy and this year has celebrated its 1500th starter and 500th completer with more than 700 currently on programme.

Apprenticeships provide us with the skills knowledge and behaviours needed to ensure the best level of service to our customers, supporting our business growth and succession planning and we currently offer them at 3 different levels

We plan to extend our programme even further next year by increasing Apprentice numbers significantly within our Food business following our current pilot on the new Retail Trailblazer standards. We will also be offering broader and higher level Apprenticeships across our business including our support centre in Manchester in areas such as Finance, Insurance, Human Resources and Legal
