Grad Apprenticeships Hero


The Retail Leadership Degree Apprenticeship is demanding, both personally and academically. Most learners on the programme are entering higher education for the first time and the combination of work, study and personal family commitments can be challenging.

It’s important to us that you have the tools you need to succeed. At both Kingston and Lidl, you’ll be treated as an individual and supported by a strong community. Our friendly teams are here for you from the moment you arrive, providing expert advice and guidance to ensure you’re well looked after and can make the most of your experience.

Module leader and teaching team

The module team are the primary source for academic support and assignment supervision. They coordinate tutorial support and ensure appropriate feedback is provided.

Personal Tutor

Every learner has their own personal tutor and regular opportunities to meet with them one-to-one, providing support, guidance, and encouragement. They will be on hand to answer any questions about your academic studies and signpost you to further support.

Skills Coach

Skills coaches are assigned to each learner at the start of their journey. They facilitate quarterly review meetings, with the learner and the workplace mentor to review progress, support work-based learning opportunities and in the preparation and readiness for the End Point Assessment (EPA).

Workplace mentor and buddy system
