Our courses

All our courses are fully co-produced and co-delivered by experts by profession (people who have professional knowledge in a particular subject area) and experts by experience (people who have personal experience of a particular health challenge).

This approach empowers people to use their experiences to help others on their recovery journey. We have found that this way of working really brings a different dynamic to the college. Here you can read some feedback from our experts by profession and experts by experience.

Expert by profession feedback

“I really enjoyed working with Lucy (peer trainer) to co-produce the Coping With Change course. I learned so much from her and found that I was able to work much more creatively having her input; it was invaluable and added an extra dimension. I’m really excited to be involved in the delivery of this co-produced course.”

Nic Holliday, Occupational Therapist for Pennine Care

Experts by experience feedback

"I really enjoyed developing ideas for future courses, creating a whole timeline for the college and feeding back on how courses gone so far. It’s always been fun and exciting and I always come away having learned so much! I came away from the session feeling great that my ideas and opinions had been really listened to. I feel I have really had a positive impact on how the college is developing. I’d love for more students to get involved in these sessions as student opinions really do help the college greatly.”

Amy Wilcox-Jones, 23, from Oldham
