Upcoming courses from Woodvale and Ainsdale Community Association

Giving a ‘BOOST’ to Local People

Are you stuck in a rut? Do you have time on your hands?

Woodvale and Ainsdale Community Association are running a FREE 6 week course funded by The P.H. Holt Foundation to help give local people aged 18+ a BOOST.

The course recognises that people learn from one another and gives people the opportunity to talk about their experiences. Participants learn to set achievable goals, develop the skills to communicate with confidence, recognises existing skills whilst gaining new ones, looks at time management and how to work together with other people. During the course participants will also produce a CV and gain an accredited level 2 First Aid qualification (the First Aid Course will be one full day training held on a Thursday).

The course starts on the 17th of January and runs from 12 – 2:30pm on Thursdays. If you are interested in attending this course please contact the centre on 01704 573084 or email sarah.woodvalecentre@btconnect.com as places are limited.
