What is an Apprentice Optical Consultant?
Our practice colleagues are essential in ensuring our customers see, look and feel better than they ever thought possible…
You will assist customers in all steps of their experience in our practice from booking their appointment and doing pre screening tests for the optometrist to dispensing their glasses. We will give you the necessary knowledge and skills to do a great job in practice and you will earn a nationally accredited Optical retailing diploma in the process.
Join us in practice and you’ll find yourself on our Apprenticeship programme, taking advantage of the optical retail diploma level.
What can i expect?
It all starts with a 12 week induction programme welcoming you to Boots Opticians and helping you to get to know your environment.
Then once you’ve completed your induction you start the Apprenticeship Programme – the Diploma in Optical Retail Skills level 2, as well as Functional Skills training, supported throughout by a personal ‘buddy’ and your practice manager.
The programme includes six development days at one of our five training centres, which support the skills and knowledge you acquire in practice.
Once you have completed your level 2 Apprenticeship and have begun building your Optical Consultant skills, you’ll have the opportunity to go one step further by achieving level 3 in the diploma (the Advanced Apprenticeship) and becoming a Senior Optical Consultant.
