Skills Academy Information

Who we are

Our business training team at the Skills Shop offers bespoke training services for employers within the retail sector. Our specialist team can support the development of your staff with retail training packages designed in line with your needs.

Established in April 2013 by Trafford College, Skills Shop aims to bridge the gap for employers and unemployed people looking to work at the Trafford Centre. Our one stop shop provides training, information and guidance on courses, apprenticeships and updates on the development of Trafford City.

Since opening its doors, our Skills Shop has worked closely with the local communities and partnerships surrounding Trafford, Salford and Bolton to support and open up opportunities of employment. In just a few years, Skills Shop has successfully moved over 500 unemployed people into employment from our course and supported thousands of customers with seasonal recruitment.

We have supported over 20 store openings at the Trafford Centre with sourcing, recruitment and training needs and also hosted a successful Job event.
