A range of activities to keep young people entertained during half-term are being organised by Lichfield District.
There will be usual favourites such as golf at Beacon Park, a holiday club at Burntwood Leisure Centre, swimming lessons and roller skating at Friary Grange Leisure Centre.
And this half term there will also be an ASA Level 1 Award in Teaching Aquatics course for people over 16 who are interested in becoming a support swimming teacher.
The five-day course costs £395 and the qualification will allow participants to work anywhere in the UK. So the trainee instructors can gain valuable teaching experience, Friary Grange is offering four swimming lessons over half term for £8.
Councillor Andy Smith, Lichfield District Council’s cabinet member for leisure & parks, said: “Taking part on a sports course or one of the many other activities is a great way to keep busy over the half term holiday.
“We have a wide range of activities on offer to children and young people, such as trampolining, swimming, football, golf and much more.”
