A new advice centre is opening at the White Rose Shopping Centre to offer people in south Leeds support on jobs and access to learning and skills training.
The Point will open on Thursday 11th October.
It will offer a wide range of learning and skills opportunities including retail, hospitality, customer service and security. The Point will support people’s development, build confidence and help people move into employment or further training. It will also offer practical help with jobsearches and information on the range of job and training opportunities.
Beeston and Holbeck councillor Adam Ogilvie, who is also executive board member with responsibility for skills, said:
“The Point will look at ways in which local people can benefit from the diverse jobs market and range of expertise available within the local area and the White Shopping Rose Centre.
“I would encourage anyone who wants to find out more about getting into the retail sector to visit The Point for useful information and advice on the next steps.”
The Point is run by Leeds City Council in partnership with Leeds City College, Land Securities, Job Centre Plus and the National Careers Service. Land Securities owns the White Rose Centre and is also behind the new Trinity Leeds development in the city centre.
