Bright Lights Starting out in Retail

New Mersey is calling for young people in Liverpool to take the first step in their retail careers by registering for its free training programme, Bright Lights Starting Out in Retail.

The five-week programme starts on the 20th August and will give young people in Liverpool access to high quality training, including advice from industry experts, support with interviews and CV writing, as well as a personal mentor. They will also gain valuable on-the-job experience through work placements at some of New Mersey biggest brands.

Those interested in signing up to the programme will need to attend a Taster Session on the 15th August which they can register for on New Mersey’s website. The session will give people the opportunity to find out more about the training programme, put questions to the course leaders and enrol.

Bright Lights Starting Out in Retail is funded by New Mersey’s co-owner British Land and delivered in partnership with The Source Skills Academy – a leading centre of excellence for retail and customer service training.

All those that complete the training will receive formal qualifications, including BTEC Level 1 Retail Knowledge, which will be presented to them at a special celebration event on the 21st September.

To book a place at the Taster Session, email brightlights@thesourceacademy.co.uk or contact 0114 263 5619.
