Nisa launches Retail Academy for partners and colleagues


Nisa retailers and their staff are to benefit from an overhaul to the bespoke training facility that offers vital support for all their learning and development needs.

The Retail Academy which part of the Nisa membership, ensures store colleagues have the very latest information on relevant practices, legislation and retailing must-knows.

Delivered in partnership with the Co-op the new eLearning platform will be introduced this month, drastically enhancing the learning experience of retailers.

The collaboration between the Learning and Development teams at Nisa and the Co-op will give partners access to a new and fresher style of training that is interactive and engaging.

It is supported by the Co-op’s legal and risk teams, partners can be sure the very latest legislation is always there.

Emma Brock, learning and development manager at Nisa, said: “This is a really exciting development for our partners and will be a great improvement for them.

“The new platform has been trialled by a number of Nisa retailers and their feedback has been helpful. It is a far more interactive and interesting experience and very simple to navigate.”

All data from the previously platform will be migrated over to the new one meaning no accounts will need setting up, no training will need repeating and no information previously stored on the original system will be lost.

Partners are required to complete an agreed level of training to qualify for their Symbol Group Development Fund.

Partners are invited to visit the Retail Academy stand at the virtual Nisa Expo where they will get the opportunity to have a guided tour of the new e-Learning platform and ask questions.
