Entry Requirements

Apprentice Information: Apprenticeship in Retail Supervision

Applications to enrol on the Apprenticeship in Retail Supervision programme must come directly from a retail employer.  Applications can only be accepted from retailers when the candidates are in full-time retail employment.

The entry requirements to enrol on the programme:

  • Applicants must be 18 years or older to obtain a place on the programme with Grade O6/H7 or above in 5 Leaving Certificate subjects (including Maths F2/06/H7 along with English or Irish 06/H7) or a full QQI Level 5 or higher qualification.
  • Applicants who are 18 and over but do not meet the traditional academic / certified entry requirements, may also seek entry based on their prior experiential learning (i.e. work experience). This will involve presenting supporting evidence and undergoing a Recognition of Prior learning interview with Retail Ireland Skillnet. *

  • International applicants must present the equivalent of a full Level 5 qualification or higher. Learners for whom English is not the first language must demonstrate proficiency in English. Applicants should achieve a minimum of a grade B2 in the Oxford English Test or equivalent in other recognised English Tests.

If you are working in the retail sector and want to apply, please talk with your employer first about enrolling on the programme. All applications to enrol on the programme must be made by the retail employer. Applications can only be made by retail businesses based in the Republic of Ireland for full-time employees. All apprentices must be in full time employment with a retailer for the duration of the programme,

* Proposed change to entry requirements is subject to validation.
