Winter 2019 Enrolment Days
The Humber Recovery & Wellbeing College will be touring Hull and East Riding answering questions and taking enrolments for January - March 2019 courses in the final week of our Autumn Term.
We will also take 2019 enrolment forms through the post and email, and from existing students during this last week of term after the timetabled courses and workshops have ended; please note that these hand-given forms will not be processed until the facilitator has returned to the office. All course places are given on a first-come, first-serve basis, so it’s good to get your form in quickly!

How to Enrol
Once you have found the courses you are interested in, pull out the centre page enrolment forms, fill out the one that corresponds to the term/year you are enrolling for (we will not accept 2019 forms before our first enrolment day in December - see opposite), and send it back to us via email or post, or by giving us it at one of our enrolment days.
Please note: we do not take telephone enrolments.
All our courses are FREE to attend, although we ask for a £1 per person enrolment fee. Some courses also have a materials cost. This is to ensure the appropriate materials/resources for that particular course.
Please note that we are unable to begin processing your form on our systems until we have received your enrolment fee and any material costs
If we receive payment at the same time as receiving your enrolment form (e.g. you paid in cash on an enrolment day), we will process your form and send you an email or ring you if no email is available, confirming what courses you have been enrolled on.
If we DO NOT receive payment at the same time as receiving your enrolment form (e.g. you sent us your form by email or post), we will telephone you soon after receiving your form to take a card payment over the telephone. Once we have processed your form we will send you an email or ring you if no email is available, confirming what courses you have been enrolled on
Please keep your confirmation email as a reminder of what courses you are on as we do not contact students again prior to course commencement. We recommend that students make a note of their confirmed courses in their diaries/on their calendars to make sure they don’t forget nearer the time.

EQUALITY & DIVERSITY
We wholeheartedly believe that the recovery values of Hope, Opportunity and Control should be made accessible to everybody, regardless of ethnic origin, nationality, gender, creed, belief, sexual orientation, ability, marital status or anything else that makes us unique. The Recovery College is free from any mental health stigma or stigma of any other kind.
We recognise that students may face increased disadvantages and discrimination and we are committed to ensuring that every effort is made to eliminate any associated experiences. You will, at all times, be respected as an individual within an inclusive environment.
More about equality and diversity can be found on our Trust website:
NHS Equality & Diversity
If you feel dissatisfied with any aspect of the Recovery College please talk to your tutor or any member of the team. We will endeavour to resolve the issue in-house but if you would like to take it further, the Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust has a Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) and a complaints procedure that the team can signpost you to.
As an educational establish-ment, we require some personal details at enrolment and agree to purposes for which it will be used (have a look at the enrolment form at the back to see the sorts of things we require). Recovery College tutors will not have any access to students’ health records, but your attendance will be recorded on our own internal registers and we ask students to ensure they have signed the class register.
Information shared during courses and workshops will remain confidential unless tutors assess that someone’s safety is at risk.
Your details will not be used for any other purposes outside of the Recovery College—we may contact students with details of new courses and Recovery College events, unless requested otherwise. In line with the Data Protection Act (1998), any student can also request to view information held about them.
Recovery College courses are free and open to people over the age of 16 who live in Hull and East Riding area and feel they may benefit from the courses offered. Our courses focus on Mental Health Recovery, but all courses are open to absolutely everyone!
To be eligible all you really need is to be willing to give it a go!
We aim to provide an accessible and inclusive learning environment for all our students at all our venues, which are wheelchair friendly. Please let us know in advance of attending your course if you have additional needs and we will do our best to support you.
Some courses may require a certain level of ability or means to engage, but these will be explained within individual course descriptions and on enrolment
HEALTH & SAFETY
Student and Staff health and safety is of paramount importance within the Recovery College and all our venues.
Fire safety instructions will be given at the start of a course or workshop and all our staff are trained in Basic Life Support and First Aid.
You are responsible for the safety of your own belongings when attending Recovery College courses– please keep any valuable items with you at all times as the Recovery College and the Humber NHS Foundation Trust cannot accept responsibility.
I have another question or would like to know more... Who do I ask?
You can ask anyone in the Recovery College team at our events or if you see them during the workshops/courses. You can also look online for information at www.humberrecoverycollege.nhs.uk, contact us via Twitter (@HFTRecoveryCol) or Facebook (/HumberRecoveryCollege). Ring our office on 01482 389 124 or email us at email@example.com and we’ll do our best to answer your questions.
