Course leader, Lucy Potter said:

“St Luke’s Cares’ seven week Retail Course is a friendly informal course which takes place above the busy charity shop on Dewsbury Road. Participants learn ‘soft skills’ in a friendly environment of the workplace getting ‘hands on’ experience in; customer service, till work and shop displays.

“Alongside this there is learning in IT Fundamentals and different responsibilities of a volunteers role in a charity shop such as sorting, ragging and pricing all of which lead to obtaining a Level One Certificate in Skills for Further Learning and Employment.”
