According to increased levels of interest amongst merchants, Japan Tobacco International is providing tobacco retailers the opportunity to get an extra 500 training packages, above the 50 they primarily provided, to secure their businesses and conform to the law on underage sales.
The qualification, which is accepted by Trading Standards, the police and local regulators, allows stores and their staff to turn out to be pillars of responsible selling in their local communities. To get into, retailers should log on to jtiadvance.co.uk before November 25 and fulfill a short quiz, before entering their information to go into the prize draw. Those merchants not already authorized on JTI’s trade website must speak to their JTI company representatives or call JTI’s Customer Careline to get a Contact ID.
Those who win of the competition will get course supplies for the BTEC Level 2 Award in Under Age Sales Prevention for each and every of their staff, valued at £100 each. They will also get training from a previous Trading Standards Officer at Under Age Sales who will get ready staff for the examination at a mutually convenient time. The officer will watch over them while taking the exam, ahead of marking it and posting it to Edexcel for the Award.
Tom Hirons, government relations office manager at JTI, explained: “We all agree with the fact that children should not light up and should not have accessibility to smoking products. “Providing retailers with this degree is part of our larger dedication to assisting retailers in making certain that under 18s are not able to purchase tobacco products in their stores. Retailers should benefit of this chance to succeed high quality training for their staff and shield their businesses by logging on to JTI Advance now to take the quiz.”
