Over a 10-week training session, participants will learn specific skills related to the grocery and retail industry. Completion is based on attendance and participation in both GO4GROCERY classes and on-site training in grocery stores. Trainees will receive a broad overview (a combination of in-class and on-the-job training) to learn the necessary skills for a courtesy clerk position at a grocery store or similar retail setting. Trainees will acquire between 50-60 measurable and reported skills over a 10-week period to obtain a certificate of completion, provided by New Horizons and participating grocer partners. Our GO4GROCERY curriculum includes classroom lessons for skills necessary to perform on-the-job duties and skills to assist with developing confidence and the ability to successfully engage in appropriate workplace relationships with co-workers, supervisors and store customers.
Upon Successful Completion
Trainees will have the option to receive continued support through New Horizons’ Employment Services department. Such support will include assessment, job development, and placement and coaching.
