GCA GROW releases till security module

by | Apr 14, 2023 | Associations, News | 0 comments

The Garden Centre Association (GCA) has introduced a new till security module via its Garden Retail Online Workshops (GROW) e-learning platform.

Antony Snow, Instructional Designer for GROW at the GCA, said, “Each year, retailers throughout the UK lose significant sums of money, and therefore profit, from theft or by becoming the victim of a scam or other fraudulent activity, so this course will help our member garden centres and their staff to prevent losses at the tills.”

Peter Burks, GCA Chief Executive, added: “We are always looking ahead to improve GROW, which is one of the most vital services we provide for our GCA members. This recent addition has been carefully put together by Antony to complement our existing offering.”

GROW – available to both GCA and Horticultural Trades Association members – now offers 105 modules across a wide range of topics that cover horticulture, customer service, food safety, regulated sales and health and safety.
