Stable Continuity: Continuing training as a tool for employee-oriented personnel management in the retail sector (TiP3)

Summary
This project represents a further development of workplace-oriented, continuing training in the retail trade. This type of continuing training had been identified in sectoral studies conducted under the FORCE programme as being a particularly innovative approach in the training of sales staff in the retail trade. The so-called "TIP system", with its workplace-related and workplace-oriented training approach, represents a central interface between further qualification, staff development, customer orientation and internal organisational development. Experience has shown that continuing, workplace-oriented training that potentially involves all employees and makes training into an everyday component of work without being associated with expectations of advancement or other forms of incentive can create problems. This raises the question of how inquisitiveness, interest and the motivation to learn can nevertheless be maintained over longer periods.

The aim is to clarify during the one-year project whether there is interest in the other EU countries in joining in a TIP user network with the objective of extending the approach in qualitative terms towards developing an employee-oriented overall concept of personnel development. The products of the project will comprise national reports from Luxembourg, Finland and Austria on the transfer potential of an extended TIP approach as well as a transfer guide for use within the EU (in German and English). In addition, the results of the contact and transfer workshops will be compiled with a view to their implementation.

Impact
The project follows a longer-term strategy for vocational education in the retail sector, with the emphasis on continuing training of employees, thus promoting the concept of the "learning" company.
