We're committed to developing rich, functional expertise through our Academies. We have core and advanced modules that leverage the best of internal knowledge combined with external global best practice, such as partnership to offer a mini MBA in Strategic Category Management with Deakin University through our Business Unit Academy.

Operational leadership

We support Supermarket, Supply Chain, and Liquor team members achieve their leadership aspirations through our Operational Leadership talent pathway. Participants develop towards their new role through a blend of hands-on coaching, online activities, a leadership workshop, and on-job tasks and assessments where they put all their learning into practice.

Experience, exposure, and education    

Learning happens in several ways and through different mediums and channels; it isn’t limited to a formal workshop. We learn by reading or observing. We also learn through our peers and leaders via feedback. Finally, we learn best by practising and having a go!
