Kickstart your Hospitality and Retail careers at Skills Training UK Open Days

May 14th, 2018

Young people aged 16-24 looking to kickstart their careers in hospitality and retail are invited to attend potentially life-changing open days in West London with independent training provider Skills Training UK this month.

Learners are guaranteed a job interview after successfully completing a hospitality or retail course with Skills Training UK, which has a proven track record of providing recognised qualifications and industry-leading skills and knowledge to help youngsters progress onto Apprenticeships or employment.

Trainees will benefit from CV writing skills, interview techniques, careers guidance, and a quality work experience placement with a local employer. Both programmes include sector-specific vocational training as well as support to work towards English and Maths Functional Skills.

Up to £100 in shopping vouchers will also be available on successful completion of both courses.

Martina Soldati (pictured above) completed a retail course with Skills Training UK and was employed as a sales advisor at Clarks. 

Graham Clarke, Director of Education and Social Mobility at Skills Training UK, said: “These open days are excellent opportunities for young people to find out exactly how they can develop their careers in retail and hospitality through our provision.

“Both industries are constantly on the lookout for the stars of tomorrow and our programmes have a proven track record of providing young learners with the skills and experiences craved by employers.

“The retail industry offers a broad career path, from frontline roles at high street chains to IT, HR and logistics at online shopping giants, allowing you to gain transferable skills like customer service and stock control. Hospitality also offers a diverse range of roles where you can quickly gain responsibilities, build your confidence and make a name for yourself.

“So if you’re aged 16 to 24 and looking for your first step on your career ladder, get yourself down to one of our open days – it could change your life.”
