Retail Management Development Programme

The inaugural Wholesale and Retail SETA Retail Management Development Programme was launched in 2012 as a response to address skills gaps within the current middle management complement within the Wholesale and Retail Sector. The Programme equips delegates with prerequisite skills on becoming effective managers.  The main objective of the Programme is to improve the pool of skilled middle management in retail.

The RMDP aims to equip current middle managers with the skills to become effective in pursuing the organisational goals of excellence within their own organisations in the Wholesale and Retail sector. The Retail MDP also seeks to create an avenue for retail management development for prospective retail managers. Retail management development has been identified as a key requirement in terms of the SETA’s Sector Skills Plan (SSP). This is largely due to the fact that many retail managers are developed within the business, from a relatively low qualification requirement. Their skills acquisition is largely on the job and there is a deficit of retail qualifications available from academic institutions. The Retail MDP will be a welcome enabler to professionalise retail management and position wholesale and retail as an attractive career proposition.
