REDDITCH and Bromsgrove residents now have the opportunity to take part in a variety of training courses between January and the end of March.

The courses, which focus on sport and coach education, are being run across Redditch and Bromsgrove.

The range of courses on offer at Redditch Town Hall include emergency first aid, marketing essentials, how to coach disabled people in sport, safeguarding and protecting children, and funding your club.

At Bromsgrove Council House, there will also be courses on safeguarding and protecting children, and emergency first aid, along with business essentials.

Councillor Luke Stephens, whose portfolio covers leisure and culture, said: “I think it is great that we can offer these training courses to our residents and provide them with the opportunity to enhance and improve their skills – some of which may even help save lives. I hope everyone interested takes advantage of this.”
