You can read more about these modules and the other training opportunities at Nourish below.

Customer Focus

We’re really proud of our award winning customer experience. We love to share what we know about natural products and go that extra mile to help someone find what they’re looking for.
New team members take part in two Customer Focus Workshops. Certified by CX Change, these workshops give you the tools and knowledge to provide a helpful, friendly and welcoming shopping experience.
This training continues with our Customer Focus Coaching advanced module, so that teams and customers alike can feel valued, informed and happy about their experience at Nourish.

Product & Ailment Approach

We take a unique Holistic Approach when helping customers at Nourish. Our introductory Product and Ailment series will give new team members the tools to feel confident speaking with customers about our products.
Our advanced sessions support both new and senior team members. They offer more in-depth learning so you can gain a deeper understanding of a variety of common ailments.

Nourish Fundamentals

As one of Ireland’s leading health food stores with more than 35 years’ experience, we know our stuff. We have worked with experts in their fields to create our own Nourish Supplement and Nourish Skincare ranges. These specific training sessions provide an overview of our two product ranges, their ingredients, formulations and usage.

All About Wholefoods

We are Ireland’s Home of the Wholefood. Wholefood is food as it should be. Nothing bad has been added in and nothing good has been taken away. Think grains, nuts, seeds, fruits and veggies!
In these training sessions, you’ll learn about nature’s superfoods, sustainable diets and the nutritional benefits of a wholefood, plant-friendly diet.


We want to nurture and develop great leaders. Whether you build a career with Nourish or move on to another field, we want you to build longstanding leadership skills with us so you can inspire, develop and guide a team.
We facilitate Leadership and Management training through in-house bespoke leadership modules. We also work with Retail Excellence and the CPL Institute for further growth and development.

Meet the Makers

Hear directly from our favourite brands, producers and makers. We facilitate over 30 training sessions from our partners. These regular opportunities to speak with the people behind the products can help teams increase their knowledge, ask product specific questions and gain valuable brand insights.

Nourish Learning Library

All our team members gain access to our Nourish Learning Library. This is our own resource database with extensive information about wholefoods, natural products, ailments and our Holistic Approach.
Here you’ll find a wealth of information to further your own learning including articles, interactive case studies, online courses, workbooks and seminars.

Health and Safety

This module provides you with information and instruction on safe manual handling techniques.
Once completed, your certificate will be valid for three years and recognised by all organisations across Ireland.
