Sales Executive Apprenticeship – Reference Number: ST0572
Who is it for?
The Sales Executive apprenticeship is suitable for sales individuals working in either the Business to Business or Business to Consumer markets, with responsibility to sell a specific product line or service. Once completed, a Sales Executive will understand and be able to implement the essentials of selling and sales representation at this level. They will possess excellent product knowledge, allowing them to win business through proposals, negotiation and sales presentations. They will be able to find and generate opportunities, planning sales activities to allow them to keep and develop business, leveraging resources and professional performance. All of this will be developed within the apprenticeship.
How is the Training Delivered and what can you expect?
Larger cohorts can have training delivered in-house, at a convenient time. For smaller cohorts, training will be delivered at one of 19 study centres throughout the UK. All study centres deliver classes at flexible times outside of work hours therefore not impacting on the day to day business. All apprentices will have access to a virtual learning environment www.oxcomlearning.com for extra reading, study and communication.
The apprenticeship will take approximately 18-24 months to complete during which time the apprentice will gather evidence that apprenticeship outcomes have been met. During this time, the apprentice will have regular meetings (every 6-8 weeks) with their mentor / assessor to check progress.
Unlike some other apprenticeships, the Sales Executive has no embedded qualification, though the standard does meet the eligibility requirements for Sales Certification at Level 4 with the Association of Professional Sales (APS). To increase value, through Oxford College of Marketing, completion of the Sales Executive Apprenticeship can therefore include the APS Level 4 Diploma in Executive Selling professional qualification, adding significant value for the apprentice and the organisation.
