MP tours Retail Academy.
Mr Howarth toured the 10,500 sq ft "shopping mall" at the Knowsley Business Park facility providing hands-on training, from customer service to stock control, cash handling and health and safety at work.
Since opening in September, nearly 200 people have taken up training and from the first 45 to complete the course, 38 secured job interviews with 23 taking up full-time or parttime employment. Mr Howarth said: "The Academy is a welcome addition to training provision in the borough, and I hope it will be a real success."
