How To Book

How To Book Onto A Course

Please read carefully before you book! You need to book to attend any of our courses, which are all free.

NB We can only take bookings for the current termno further ahead. This is to ensure everyone has an equal chance of getting a place. Booking is also necessary so we know in advance if there will be enough people to run the course and to ensure we have sufficient materials for all participants.

We will call you shortly before the course to check that you are still able to attend. You must also complete a registration form, see below for details.

If you are a member of staff and would like to ask us about running one of our courses for your colleagues, service users or carers, please contact the college to discuss further.


We appreciate that unexpected things happen in life, but if you are unable to attend the course you’ve booked, please let us know as soon as possible.

Many of our courses now have waiting lists. If you don’t turn up without letting us know, someone else wanting to do the course may miss out on the opportunity. Please let us know if you are unable to attend a course you have booked.

If you are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible. Many courses have waiting lists, so if you do not let us know someone else may miss out on a course they want to attend.

Course Times

We try to vary the times of our courses to make them as accessible to as many people as possible. If you have specific requests about course times, do let us know. Please note that the current programme lists courses for a whole year, ie Autumn 2018 and Spring & Summer 2019, therefore please do read the date listings carefully.

Enrolment Forms

Students complete a registration form which helps us monitor our courses and improve the quality and diversity of our training. We also  need to be able to demonstrate whether coming to the college is helping people with their mental wellbeing and recovery. So, the form asks some questions about your involvement with services. This information will not be shared with any other parties in accordance with the Trust’s confidentiality policy and the Data Protection Act. The form needs to be completed when you start attending, so can be done at home and brought in, e-mailed or completed at the 1st course you attend. It only takes 5 minutes. Please call or e-mail if you have any questions.

Individual Learning Plans (ILP’s)

We understand that people will want to use the programme in different ways. For some, they may just want to access one off courses here and there, because they have a particular interest in that topic. For others, they would like a more structured approach to their learning that explicitly supports their personal recovery journey. We offer all students the opportunity to complete an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) with one of our staff. This will help to inform choices. If you are interested in completing an ILP, please tick the ILP box on the registration form or contact our administration team on the number below.

If you are interested in booking onto any of our courses, please contact us on 020 8483 1456 or e mail us at [email protected] . We will book you onto your chosen course if there are spaces still available, or put you on a waiting list.
