Nurturing young talent in eye care

Developing young talents and nurturing passion for and expertise in eye care have always been of uttermost to GrandVision and our People & Culture teams.


More than 18 of our operating companies partner with universities and vocational programs to prepare students to become professional eye care providers. Programs range from two months to three-and-a-half years and provide students with in-store work experience, soft skills

and technical training.


In 2019, we received multiple awards for our young talent training programs. They include:

  • U.K.'s Vision Express won 'Best Apprenticeship Program' for the East Midlands region
