ACS unveils new training package

13 November, 2015

The Association of Convenience Stores (ACS) is encouraging retailers to take advantage of a new platform to allow them to train their staff on Assured Advice.

The platform, which has been developed by online learning company Bolt, will allow any ACS member to sign up to the Assured Advice scheme and benefit from both the assurance of the guides and industry leading training modules for staff members.

ACS chief executive James Lowman said: “The Assured Advice scheme provides essential advice in many of the areas of convenience store retailing where store owners could be challenged by Local Authorities. By including a training platform alongside our advice guides, retailers can ensure that their staff are up to date with the latest information and understand what is required of them to stay compliant with Assured Advice.”

The Assured Advice scheme features guidance on preventing underage sales, health and safety, fireworks, food safety and other issues facing convenience store retailers. By signing up to Assured Advice and following the guides, retailers cannot be forced to change their procedures by local enforcement authorities.

All of the Assured Advice guides are available on the ACS website at
