Retailing encompasses human resources, finance, law, sales, marketing and administration. Specialist study could include merchandising and display, food or fashion retailing, or transportation, and distribution and storage. The BTEC Level 2 First Certificate and Diploma in Retail are designed to introduce learners to working in the sector or prepare them for further study, such as a BTEC National qualification or an appropriate NVQ.
The BTEC Firsts in Retail were replaced by the QCF-accredited BTEC Level 2 Certificate, Extended Certificate and Diploma in Business from September 2010. Find out more
