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 Focus Your Future are here to empower our participants to develop the 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 of life is education and Focus Your Future was set up with one simple goal, that is to provide that opportunity for people.

In conjunction with Louth Meath Education and Training Board, 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)
  • GDPR privacy regulation
  • CV and job application preparation
  • Mock interviews
  • General Office Skills

The Focus Your Future programme has been successfully running in Drogheda for  over 20 years. We have seen many changes in the employment market and in the cultural development of our local community during this time.  With this in mind, we continually monitor what is happening and adjust our training programme to meet the needs of the current climate. We believe that The Retail Sales Programme we currently offer is the best route to a fruitful career for our participants. The research we carried out in the local area has shown that there is a high demand in the sector for trained individuals.

Since it’s inception, the Focus Your Future participants have achieved many QQI Level 4 major awards and progressed into employment and some have progressed to third level education. Our success rate encourages us to continue delivering a quality service to the younger people in our community.
