The Black Country Skills Shop, which is run in partnership with Westfield at Merry Hill, Worcester College, Shrewsbury College and Jobcentre Plus, covers the Black Country region as well as Hereford & Worcester and Shrewsbury.


We offer people employed in retail, as well as those hoping to enter the sector, the opportunity to access nationally recognised training and qualifications, including   pre-employment courses, apprenticeships and management programmes.


Tina Dalzell, Skills Shop Manager, said: 

“Retail is the largest private sector employer in the UK and we are delighted that our application to join the National Skills Academy for Retail was accepted.  Our aim is to promote retail in the area as a career and we’re offering pre-employment training, store management programmes and general advice and guidance on how to get ahead in retail.”Retail Image
