Academy of Sales

The Working Knowledge Academy of Sales enables talented young people to establish rewarding and fulfilling careers in sales which will last them a lifetime.

There is currently a lack of young, trained sales talent in the UK and businesses are suffering from high attrition and poor productivity rates within their sales staff. We have a proven track record in delivering effective sales training to young people via
apprenticeships and successfully supporting them during their first year in a sales environment.

We know that a good salesperson is an essential commodity for any organisation. By providing education in sales with academically recognised qualifications we are increasing the numbers of qualified potential workers, ensuring that new employees are eager and interested in sales. Our intensive recruitment, selection and training process creates loyal, talented and driven sales apprentices. This boosts staff retention resulting in reduced recruitment and staff training costs to you.
