The Nottingham Recovery College provides a range of courses to help you to develop your skills and understanding, identify your goals and ambitions and give you the confidence and support to make the most of any opportunities.
The college brings together two sets of expertise – professional and experience. This non-stigmatising college environment has the same systems as other educational establishments. All of the courses are designed to contribute towards wellbeing and recovery. People who share experiences of mental or physical health challenges teach on the courses and aim to inspire hope and embody the principles of recovery.

Caring with Confidence is a series of free workshops for City carers, run by the Carers Federation. The course aims to provide carers with up to date relevant information and support carers to learn new skills and improve existing knowledge to make life a little easier.
Improving the care that older people receive is a national priority, and the best practice courses from DSDC have been designed to equip care staff with the understanding, skills and confidence to improve the experience and outcomes of care and support for people with dementia and their families.
Key partners, including employers in the NHS, local authorities, community groups and the private, voluntary and independent sectors, have been involved in development of this course content, and their feedback continues to help shape the training.
