Students at City College Plymouth have been full of praise after two managers from Appleby Westward gave them an insight into the role of an in store merchandiser.
Vince Brown and Dave Kennington gave a workshop and presentation on merchandising to students. The students are studying for an extended diploma in business and focussing on the psychology of visual merchandising.
Vince and Dave outlined various plans of store layouts and explained how and why products are displayed in store.
Student feedback was positive afterwards, with every candidate rating the presentation four or five out of a maximum of five points
Sara Harvey, Workspace Co-ordinator at the college, said: “Students were also asked to score how well the workshop was delivered, and each student scored this as a five, which is a fantastic result.”
Students were also complimentary about the detail and quality of the presentation, as well as the way questions were answered.
Sara added: “Employer talks really help to enrich the learning experience of our students and enable them to understand the realities of what is involved in a particular sector. We were grateful for Appleby Westward’s interest and look forward to working with the company again in the future.”
