Free Thornbury training courses

New Thornbury training courses start next week, on 21/09/2020.

The training courses are for individuals who are struggling with their mental health and would benefit from making connections in their local community, and those who do not hold at least a level 2 qualification.

Thornbury training courses on offer are as follows:

  • Accredited First Aid at work (For adults aged 19+ with few or no qualifications, or adults experiencing other barriers to work)
  • Introduction to First Aid
  • Arts and crafts for wellbeing
  • Food and mood (nutrition and wellbeing)
  • Refresh your English
  • Get that job!

Courses start from 21 September and run until December. Each course varies in length. Some are just 1 day, and some are up to 8 weeks long. The training courses are run by the South Gloucestershire Community Learning and Skills Service, and they will be held face to face, unless coronavirus guidelines change.

For further details and to book your place, please contact Anneliese Goodare, Community Learning Development Worker, on 01454 864 613 or email
