2021 Retail Training Graduation from The Social Outfit on Vimeo.

Last week our latest group of retail trainees graduated from the Retail Training Program.

This cohort was not like any other, with the lockdowns turning what was meant to be a 3 month program into 6 months, with a transition to online facilitated by our amazing Retail Trainer Nat!

We’re so unbelievably proud of our retail trainees and how hard they fought to reach this day - and to be able to celebrate with each other and their phenomenal teacher put a smile on the face of everyone in the room.

This here, at their graduation last week, was the first time they all got to meet each other in person - after so many weeks of online learning and training, it was so lovely to all be together, to laugh, smile and celebrate!

They are a truly incredible group of women that inspire each and every one of us on the team, and we hope they inspire each of you too!
