Kesko Food trains future K-retailer entrepreneurs through Kesko Food's retailer training programme. Every participant accepted into the programme is tailored a programme with individual areas of emphasis. Everyone can start the programme when it suits them, and the length of the programme depends on the need for development. It is determined based on the applicant's educational background, their experience in supervisory work, their experience in tasks with profit responsibility and previous customer-facing work, among other things.
Every programme to be launched includes retailer on-the-job training in a K-food store, the necessary theoretical online studies as well as regional and national group study modules. The studies take some 4 to 18 months, depending on the defined extent of training needed.
