Developing Your Visual Merchandising Skills

IGDS is delighted to offer two Visual Merchandising On-Demand Courses in 2024, which are now open for enrolment and immediate registration. 

The courses offer two levels, beginners and advanced, and are being conducted in partnership with Sarah Manning, Course Leader of VMC.

Module & Learning Outcomes
To read more about the modules and learning outcomes of each course, please follow the links below:

The courses are designed to be completed at the participant’s own pace and on-demand, accessed via the online Member Vault training platform. This means each module can be completed at any time of the day or week to suit the participant’s schedule.
The structured course modules contain pre-recorded video lessons from Sarah Manning and reading material. Practical exercises are set after each module, which participants can carry out in their stores and then share the results via the platform for feedback.
