The BRC has introduced a new training programme which is specifically aimed at non-executive directors in retail.
The programme, which is marked as the UK’s first, consists of 13 one-hour modules and covers everything from identifying and mitigating reputational risk to benchmarking business performance against sector and regional comparators.
The BRC said this will be delivered through its new learning platform and will include a mix of live sessions, including a “meet the experts” day.

The courses also offers the chance for participants to connect with the BRC experts who have helped to create these modules, while also providing key networking opportunities with other experts in the field.
“Non-executive directors play an essential role in bringing new perspectives into the boardroom,” BRC chief executive Helen Dickinson said.
“However, while all come with a wealth of experience in business, not all are specifically acquainted with the retail industry.
“This training can provide insights into many of the key topics that every new non-executive needs to know.
“Our programme is delivered by our experts, who live and breathe these issues every day.”
