Ty Catrin Recovery College Prospectus
“The wisest mind has something yet to learn” – George Santayana.
Welcome! You have made the first step which is to see what we can do to help you in your recovery journey, or help you to help others in their recovery journey.
Our courses have much to offer anyone for building skills in self-management, communication, team working, emotional intelligence and problem solving.
Our courses and workshops are designed with the expectation that many people will be nervous, worried or have difficulty concentrating.
For every course and workshop, there are two trainers; one of these may be a peer trainer who has direct life experience of recovery. The other will be a practitioner trainer, for example a psychologist, social worker, occupational therapist, registered nurses or healthcare worker, who are experienced in supporting people who use our services.
Both trainers will support students who are nervous or are worried throughout the training. We will work closely with all Recovery College participants, guiding them through the course/workshop, and helping them to feel confident and relaxed throughout the process.

Recovery College frequently asked questions
How do I find a course?
All of our courses and workshops are advertised in this prospectus. For more information, you can access our dedicated leaflet.
How do I enrol onto a course?
Please talk to a member of our occupational therapy team, or your primary nurse.
Why is the course that I want in the prospectus but not in the timetable?
We are not always able to offer every course and workshop each term, although we do our best. This is because of a difference in local demand or trainer availability. It is always helpful to us to know if you are keen that a certain course should run.
What do I do if I need further information about a course?
We are always happy to talk to you regarding any further information you need.
How much do courses cost?
Our courses and workshops are free of charge to students.
To book your place
If you would like to take part in any of these workshops or courses, please ask a member of staff to refer you to the occupational therapy team.
