BID businesses benefit from council training

Staff from Under the Prom and Coco Lush received their Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH) delivered directly by the council.

The businesses, owned by Cheltenham BID’s deputy chair Philip Jordan, took advantage of the council’s group booking discount to send six members of staff on the course.

The level 2 qualification is fully accredited and is aimed at staff and managers working in the leisure sector, particularly those who are working in businesses selling alcohol.  The qualification is also necessary for anybody wishing to apply for a personal licence.

Philip said: “The fact that the course was being run by council staff meant I could trust the information they were getting was correct, which helped my businesses, along with it being the best priced course locally!”

Cheltenham Borough Council recently received the national MJ Achievement award for the Best Commercial Council and are offering BID businesses a special rate for this training.
