Meet Waterstones Academy, a college for booksellers

Posted at 2:10PM Monday 25 Feb 2013

University of Derby Corporate is now collaborating with Waterstones not only to accredit its staff training to Certificate of Higher Education level, but also to develop Waterstones' staff professionally as tutors.

The programme will support Waterstones in realising its ambition of creating a centralised hub of training resources and qualifications for staff - the Waterstones Academy. As there are no higher education accredited programmes or degrees in bookselling in the UK, the programme will be a national first for the sector.
