Training and Development
If we were to give just one example of our strength in quality talent development, the in-depth training our graduates receive would be it.
In addition to invaluable on-the-job experience, the scheme is supported by a range of formal training courses and seminars that will teach you a range of crucial skills including leadership, communication and performance management, as well as sales and business results analysis.
You can also look forward to individual coaching and mentoring support, as well as a centrally organised programme of events including residential courses that bring all of our graduates together, enabling you to share your experiences and learn from those going through the same graduate programme as you.
In addition to your scheme-specific training, you'll also take part in our core development programme. Read more detailed information about this
At every stage of this programme we are committed to helping you be the best you can be. After all, supporting your progress is also how we’ll guarantee the future success of our business.
Please bear in mind, however, that the most crucial factor in your career development will be your own drive and self-motivation to make the most of the wealth of opportunities open to you.
Do that and there’ll be nothing stopping you reaching the highest levels of management within a short period of time. The fact that two of the current John Lewis Partnership’s Board of Directors joined the business on the John Lewis Graduate Training scheme is testament to this.
