Throughout the years, 152 buying apprentices, 126 sales apprentices and 793 store apprentices have completed the unique BESTSELLER education programme – a setup giving the trainers and teachers the opportunity to create courses that are highly relevant and directed specifically towards working in BESTSELLER.

Besides giving the apprentices the best possible education, this setup helps ensure that apprentices are more likely to stay with BESTSELLER after they have finished their education. The statistics show that 98 of the 152 buying apprentices and 58 of 126 sales apprentices are still working in the BESTSELLER organisation today.
