We understand that the courses may bring up issues for people and our staff will be here to support you and signpost you to further support if needed.
What we expect from students
All our courses are in small groups, usually of less than ten. Classes need to be a safe space for everyone and we expect all students to be respectful of each other. All courses start with a set of ground rules, written and agreed by the class. In order to receive a graduation certificate from Cornwall Recovery College, we expect students to attend at least 80% of the courses they have enrolled on.
