Why attend a classroom course?
Classroom-based settings offer a more personal experience, hands-on and distraction free environment. They provide an opportunity to socialise in a relaxed, non-judgemental, and friendly setting. Our classroom courses will consist of a maximum of 12 students, facilitated by a Staff and Peer Tutor.
Unfortunately, at the moment refreshments will not be provided, so students will need to bring their own.
We will continue to offer interactive courses online using Zoom Classroom and our popular Webinar software. In the future, we look to offer a higher variety of both classroom and online courses.
“Although I was nervous going into a classroom, I found that stepping out of my comfort zone gave me the chance to develop and grow” – Jake
“For me classroom courses gave me the opportunity to put my recovery into action. I was anxious about going out, so going to a Recovery College venue allowed me to bring the learning and practical experience together.”
“Listening to other students, helped me realise I was not alone with my thoughts and feelings.”
“Going into a classroom session was something I found really challenging initially but once I had done it, I felt so proud of myself, and it really helped me with my confidence. I felt welcomed, understood, and safe at the Recovery College” – Dee
“Meeting other people with similar experiences has helped me to feel less alone and to feel more connected again.”
