National Professional Development and Training Platform
Quality professional development and training is integral to a successful and profitable newsagency. The provision of relevant training for newsagency staff provides employees who are loyal and motivated and capable of contributing to the growth of the business. The ANF understands that staff who receive training and gain qualifications as part of their employment will perform better and stay longer with that employer, leading to a more stable workforce with a decreased staffing turnover.
The ANF is now looking at creating a new industry-specific training system, which will offer professional development for newsagents and relevant training for newsagency staff. This will be in the form of a number of different modules, which will include modules such as Business Planning, Cash Flow Management, Retail Marketing and Promotions, Logistics and Transport through to smaller modules for newsagency staff such as Merchandising, Magazine Management and Relays, Outstanding Customer Service etc.
