Introduction
I am compiling this report as part of my work based learning module as part of my foundation degree in travel and tourism management. I must complete a project of my choice around an area of weakness in the business. The area which I picked to base by report on was staff training and was in which staff are trained. I also want to experiment with the ways in which staff are trained and find out from my team members if they find the ways in which they are trained effective or would they find different methods of training more effective. For my work placement I am going to undergo a management programme in Tesco Portstewart, The options programme is a self driven programme which leads to a Line management position in a Tesco store. The options programme is a well recognised programme which allows Tesco employees develop within the company. To get onto the programme I had to gain the sponsorship of a line manager in my home store, once I gained her sponsorship I had to undergo a pre options training course covering 12 core skills once I had completed this course I had to be nominated for sign on which was one full day of interviews and scenarios which I may face in the future. The sign on day was organised by a regional personnel manager and was held by a selection of store managers from our cluster. I was graded on the answers which I gave and the amount of knowledge I had of the company. Once I was signed on I had to complete 12 different training courses and others which are optional covering all theoretical aspects of a line manager’s position and the jobs which they have to do. Completion of a training needs analysis which covers all physical aspects of the job in necessary this also includes being signed off as a duty manager. Once all of this is completed I can apply for a placement in another store which lasts for 12 weeks if completed successfully I will be signed of as a line manager for Tesco. Tesco first started in 1919 and has developed worldwide over the past decade below I have inserted a timeline of some of Tesco major development points which has made Tesco the number 1 retailer.
