Search is on for hidden talents

TALENTED people from the local community are being sought to share their knowledge with others.

Stafford and Rural Homes (SARH) is preparing the fifth edition of its Customer Learning Programme of free courses and is searching for talented customers to deliver new sessions.

“If you feel you have a particular talent, passion, or are knowledgeable about something that could be interesting or beneficial, then why not share it with others in your community,” said Samina Arshad, Community Involvement Officer for SARH.

SARH is also keen to hear from local partners or agencies that feel they can offer something beneficial to the learning programme – this could include help and advice with employability or providing the chance for people to learn a new skill or hobby.

Since the programme was launched in 2008, SARH has facilitated more than 141 courses with more than 1128 customers attending lessons.

The courses are open to anyone who lives in a SARH community.

Karen Armitage, Chief Executive of Stafford and Rural Homes, said: “We review the programme each year and take account of customers’ feedback to keep it interesting and to provide a range of free learning opportunities that are accessible to all our customers, are enjoyable and provide useful life skills.”
