We're helping young people get onto the career ladder

Open Today

11:00 - 17:00

We’re giving 16 to 24-year-olds in the region the chance to embark on a free five-week training programme, designed to provide them with the skills they need to build a successful career in retail or hospitality.

 

The ‘Bright Lights Starting Out in Retail and Hospitality’ programme gets underway in June and will combine classroom teaching alongside work placements at one of our retail, food and beverage or leisure outlets. At the end of the scheme, trainees will receive their formal qualifications at an official celebration event.

 

The free programme follows the success of last year’s course which saw 75% of graduates land a job in retail or hospitality. ‘Bright Lights Starting Out in Retail and Hospitality’ will again be funded by our co-owner British Land, and delivered in partnership with The Source Skills Academy – a leading centre of excellence for retail and customer service training.

 

To take part, young people need to sign up to the taster session on 4th July, which will provide them with a flavour of what the programme will involve and an opportunity to speak to some of the course leaders. 

 

Alan Barker, Centre Manager at Broughton, said: “The Bright Lights Starting Out in Retail and Hospitality programme is a fantastic way for young, unemployed people to discover their potential and gain valuable experience of what it’s like to work in the dynamic retail and hospitality sectors.

 

“The programme coincides with busy recruitment periods at the centre so we, together with our retailers, can’t wait to welcome the new trainees and offer them on-the-job training and support so they can really kickstart their careers.”

 

Dianne Wainwright, Head of Operations at The Source Skills Academy, said: “We’re giving local young people the chance to obtain nationally recognised qualifications and work experience at some of the country’s biggest retail and hospitality brands.

 

“We urge the region’s young jobseekers to sign up to attend our taster session on 4th July, where they’ll get the chance to learn more about the course and hear about our many success stories first-hand.”

 

To find out more information or sign up to the taster session, email brightlights@thesourceacademy.co.uk or call 0114 263 5619.
