We offer a range of recovery-focused educational courses, aimed at supporting you to recognise your potential and make the most of your talents and resources, through self-management. This will help you to deal with any health challenges you may experience and to achieve the things you want in life.

We have a range of interesting courses on offer, with a good mix of mental and physical health topics and life skills, and these will continue to expand as the college grows. This joined up approach to supporting both your mental and physical health and wellbeing supports Pennine Care’s goal of providing high quality whole person care.

The courses aim to be fun and interactive and will vary in length and duration. We will offer a number of different learning styles, to ensure there is something for everyone.

Every single course is fully co-produced. This means that it is jointly developed by experts by profession (someone with professional skills or knowledge) and experts by experience (someone with skills or knowledge gained through living with a particular condition or health challenge).

We are really excited to be part of this new project that involves working in a different way. We want to move away from a clinical focus to an educational approach and empower people to take control and learn new skills, while making new friends and connecting with others.
