Focus Your Future

QQI Retail Sales Level 4 Major Award 4M1998

Lifestyle Developments Drogheda Focus Your Future is an LMETB Local Training Initiative programme.

We at FYF are here to empower our participants to develop their skill set they require to start a career in Retail Sales or to progress to higher education. It is our belief that the key to a better quality in life is education and FYF was set up with one simple goal that is to provide that opportunity for people.
In conjunction with LMETB, we provide the local community with an LTI (Local Training Initiative) programme in Retail Sales (QQI Major Award Retail Sales 4M1998), where early school leavers aged between 18 to 35 can take advantage of a full time training programme.

The programme covers eight QQI modules, which leads to a Major QQI Award, the modules covered are:

  1. Computer Applications
  2. Information Technology Skills
  3. Retails Skills
  4. Customer Service
  5. Work Experience
  6. Communications
  7. Stock Control
  8. Personal Effectiveness

In addition to this, we also provide non-QQI training in other Retail Sales requirements such as:

  • Health and Safety
  • Food Safety (HCCAP)
  • Barista coffee making introduction
  • CV and job application preparation
  • Mock interviews

The FYF programme has been running for in excess of 20 years, where we have seen many changes in the employment market and in the cultural development of our local community. With this in mind, we continually monitor what is happening and adjust our training programme to meet the needs of the current climate and that is the reason that we have changed our programme from Information, Communication Technology to Retail Sales. We believe that Retail Sales offers the best route to fruitful career for our participants; this has been backed up by the research we carried out in the local area and by high demand in the sector for trained individuals.

Over the past 20 years, we have seen great success in our participants who have achieved many QQI Level 4 major awards and progressed into employment and some who have progressed to third level education. It is this success rate that drives us forward to keep delivering a quality service to the younger people in our community to be the best they can be or to simply help them attain their dream.
