What is a recovery college?
A recovery college is a place that provides a range of courses, which help students to make the most of the skills they already have. It aims to help students achieve their own goals, providing them with a choice of courses which suit them. All courses are voluntary so you decide which you wish to enrol onto. They are co-written and co-delivered so you get the best combination of lived experience and professional knowledge.
All courses are designed to be more informal than a normal college and we respect the fact that we all have good and bad days, but we would encourage you to attend all the courses you sign up for. Although we are called a ‘college’, we are not a substitute for mainstream education but more of a platform to help you on your way to the world of work and education in the community.
How do I sign up?
There will be regular open days at the college for you to come and have a look at what's on offer, or to get support in making your choices, and get yourself signed up on the day.
Putting your name down means that you will be considered for a course when the tutor comes to decide who can attend that course.
If you're not sure then it would be best to put your name down and then, if you change your mind, you can always let us know.
Individual learning plan
When you start each course, you will have support to set yourself some goals for the upcoming term. This helps both you and the tutor to work together to identify your learning aims and help you to get the most out of your chosen course. Some learning plans may be more detailed than others, depending on the duration of the course.
Confidentiality and data protection
Any external tutors coming into the recovery college (people who do not work for Priory) will not have access to student information or students’ health records. On such occasions, the escorting staff members will document in the student's notes about their attendance/engagement in the session.
Information shared during courses may be documented in a student’s care notes, especially if the information could potentially cause risk.
In line with the Data Protection Act (1988), any student may request to view information held about them and should follow the hospital procedure already in place to do this.
