NAJ and InterLearn Draw Close to Launch of Training Academies

25 Sep 2019

It’s now been over two weeks since International Jewellery London (IJL), and what an event it was! For all those in attendance, it was great to catch up with you and for those who couldn’t make it, here’s a taster of what you may have missed and our exciting news on the launch of the NAJ training academies.

We were thrilled to be joined at the event by our training and education partner, InterLearn, who shared the NAJ stand with us, advising and inspiring members on these new training academies. The event concluded on Tuesday with a seminar on Emotional Intelligence (EI), taken from one of our new retail academy Masterclasses, which demonstrated the importance of EI and how it can positively impact sales and customer service.

We are now very close to the launch of both our retail and leadership training academies and as is traditional for this time of year, often associated with the beginning of educational beginnings, many people reassess their goals and seek new training opportunities. With this in mind we think it’s a great time for you to consider and be inspired by our new training academies.

You will be familiar with our series of JET qualifications, especially the JET Certificate, JET Diploma and JET Management Diploma, which deliver significant technical, product, sales and management capability to our industry. These qualifications can now be gained in conjunction with either a retail or leadership apprenticeship, which between them include the standard modules detailed below:


We anticipate the academies will be funded predominantly through either your own apprenticeship levy funds or wider apprenticeship funding, therefore delivering a highly cost effective and comprehensive training solution to your business. Both the NAJ and InterLearn would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss the NAJ academies and understand your wider training and development needs.
