Building tomorrow's workforce today
Our Retail Gold programmes work with our retailers, Employers in Education, schools, colleges and Jobcentre Plus to offer students and unemployed people the opportunity to develop the skills they need for a career in retail, hospitality or leisure. The programmes provide training for potential job applicants to fulfil the needs of intu and its retailers.
Since 2005, retailers at intu Eldon Square and intu Metrocentre have provided 54,000 hours of onsite training for more than 500 students with 30 retailers. The Department for Education called Retail Gold “an excellent example of practice and impact in careers education”.
In 2019 we hope to help 200 people into employment or further training in the northeast and are developing training to support individuals with additional needs.
We recently launched our Retail Gold handbook to support the expansion of Retail Gold and planning is underway at intu Merry Hill, intu Trafford Centre and intu Uxbridge in 2019.
