Good news for people in Wolverhampton: More free training courses coming in 2019!

Think Employment are going to offer more one-week training courses in 2019 that boost people’s chances of finding work.

Every month the Wolverhampton-based training provider will be delivering at least one Vacancy-led Skills Programme to people who are keen to improve their knowledge and skill set in specific sectors. Starting on Monday 21st January is a course for people interested in working in Retail.

The training has been designed to be the ideal starting point for anyone interested in roles such as a Sales Assistant, Cashier or Checkout Assistant with major local employers.

The training is short, being only a week long, but delivers important customer service, cash handling, stock management and order processing skills and qualifications required to work in this sector.

“Our aim is to help people upskill and find a job they want to do”, explained Think Employment’s spokesperson Carla Kenworthy.

“In the last 12 months, we know that almost 10,000 jobs in Retail have been advertised in the Wolverhampton area - so we know the opportunities are out there.”

“What we do is equip people with the skills, knowledge and qualifications we know Retail employers are looking for in their candidates.”

Think Employment deliver pre-employment training that meets the needs of adults (over the age of 19) across the whole of the North of England and the Midlands - not just Wolverhampton.

The training provider delivered over 2,400 nationally-recognised qualifications and helped more than 1,600 people improve their workplace skills in the last 12 months alone. And with even more Vacancy-led Skills Programmes on the horizon for 2019, it promises to be good news for jobseekers in Wolverhampton.

If you’d like more information about the free courses at Think Employment, call 01902 213 632, visit or drop-in at Derwent House on Waterloo Road between 9:30am and 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.
