Training and development

Learning and Development

We provide a variety of opportunities to learn new skills that will help them be successful in their careers with us.

Using a combination of video learning, distance learning modules, on the job coaching and some classroom based workshops where applicable, all colleagues are provided with induction training from the start.

For those colleagues wishing to progress, we operate a very successful Onward and Upward development programme focusing on some of the key roles within the business.  Each individual is provided with a tailored training plan based on their current job knowledge and skill sets to help them achieve their career goals. 

McColl's also works in partnership with learndirect, a national provider of vocational qualifications, offering opportunities to all eligible colleagues to gain retail based qualifications whilst working in their current role.
