Learner Success Stories 

Imogen B - Buying and Merchandising Assistant Level 4 - ALDI 
 
“The most enjoyable part was being set practical tasks that relate to my job - being able to collate my learnings in a centralised place not only proved to be great EPA prep but also allowed me to reflect on what I have learnt so far at ALDI and how I can onboard those learnings going forward. Training layout was clear and easy to follow. Principles of Buying understood and applied well to my role at ALDI."
