eLearning Modules (England)
The sale of tobacco in the UK is strictly regulated in terms of age restriction, advertising and display in shops. Any breach of the government regulations can result in fines up to £5,000, imprisonment and closure of the business.
However, it also represents an effective way of increasing the sales, as the average smoker visits the convenience stores more often, and purchases more products. If your staff understand the tobacco market and the legislation that governs it, they can be both compliant with the law and significantly add to your shop’s bottom line.
At Bolt, we have developed Tobacco – Retail eLearning Modules for England, Scotland and Wales to enable users to effectively, efficiently and confidently sell tobacco products according to law. The course also provides a useful overview of the tobacco market’s segments and brands.
Fully online and interactive, accessible 24/7 on any device, and with no time limits, thanks to Bolt’s state-of-the-art learning management system. A certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the eLearning module.
This module covers the key information surrounding the selling of Tobacco, including the Tobacco Display Ban (England & Wales) and the EU Tobacco Products Directive, transcribed into British law through the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations (2016); the Tobacco and Primary Medical Sevices (Scotland) Act Scotland (2010) and the EU Tobacco Products Directive (2014).
