Retail Edge Program

Retail Edge is available to full time or part time Woolworth’s employees who are looking to develop their Management or Leadership career with us. The program covers retail core skills as well as the practical retail elements you will need to develop your career.

Retail Edge is a flexible learning program that allows you gain nationally recognised qualifications. Traineeships are a great way to gain qualifications while you work. Traineeships are undertaken in the workplace so that you are able to work and learn, meeting requirements towards a qualification, at the same time.

You will need to be able to commit to completing the online learning in your own time and in turn you will be able to practice your newly acquired skills whilst you work. You will gain access to a Skill Development Facilitator / Coach who will visit you at your workplace regularly and conduct assessments and one-on-one progress evaluations.

Flexible Learning

Our program is available in a variety of self-led learning modules to suit your personal learning style. This allows you to choose the way you learn and shape your study to fit in with your life. Once your application is successful you will be provided you with flexible learning options through:

  • Quality Resource Kit
  • Online Recognition of current skills
  • Retail Edge Orientation Morning with your Manager
  • Access to the WOW Learning Zone featuring videos, elearning and performance tools
  • 3 x 2 day workshops
  • Online Assessment Tool
  • Application of skills on the job
  • WOW Support and feedback from manager, coach and team

Your coach and manager will support your assessment process and add value to your knowledge and confidence with feedback and development opportunities.

 To commence Retail Edge through the Woolworths Registered Training Organisation, it is important that you have a Store / Site Manager that is willing to support your development throughout the time it takes you to complete. Some trainees take 4 to 6 months, others take more time to develop their skills and practice on the job. Its up to you how long it takes.

Your traineeship will be registered through the Australian Apprenticeships Centre which then formalises the traineeship with Woolworths Limited as the training provider. This is a commitment and one that could be the starting point with your career with us!
