Growing with Asda Apprenticeships

Since 2014, over 9,000 of our colleagues completed a formal apprenticeship with us. And not only gained a recognised qualification, but new and developed skills, and hands-on experience to make an impact in a transforming business. Every year we’re taking on more apprentices and helping them reach their potential. From HGV drivers to retail. At every level, whether you’ve just left school or university, or you’re looking for a career change.

Retail – Learning Journey for colleagues

We want everyone who joins our stores to be set up for success, and a great future here. So they have everything they need to grow into confident colleagues across our departments. That’s what Your Learning Journey (YLJ) is all about.

Ready to Go – Ready to Serve – Ready to Grow is designed to give you everything you need to feel confident in your role, from your induction to your fifth year with us. And support your growth across different roles in our job families, so you can gain the knowledge you need to work in a new department.


Ready to Go

We’ll welcome you into the business, helping you settle in, making sure you have the knowledge and support you need to be confident in your new role.

Ready to Serve

You’ll shadow some of our team members across different roles in our job families, and learn about the different levels in their department or store in bite-sized learning missions. So you can learn, grow, and get the knowledge you need to work in a new department.

Ready to Grow

When you’re ready, you can start thinking about where you want to go next, and what learning you need to grow – and we’ll help you make it happen. Bringing together all the opportunities available, from shadowing experienced colleagues to bite-sized learning missions, you’ll develop your skills so you’re ready to grow into your next role.
