This new apprenticeship will be a state of the art world class programme combining relevant content and experiential on-the-job training that will empower sales professionals to reach new levels of excellence. The programme will leverage technology enhanced learning methodologies to deliver a cutting-edge industry led and driven programme. The Associate Sales Professional apprenticeship will create a formal career route for apprentices and will be an exemplar that will form the centre of gravity shaping all sales professional training programmes in Ireland into the future. The apprentices will be equipped with the 21st century skills for the complex and evolving needs of customers in an ever rapidly changing global environment.
