New Leaf Recovery and Wellbeing College equips students with the skills to make changes to support their wellbeing. The college is not somewhere to obtain qualifications but to learn self-management and personal development.

Even though its been a hard year the staff and the students of the New Leaf  Recovery and Wellbeing College have shown strength and resilience. 

The college has been improving the student development programme, curriculum board and the student council, as well as reviewing and adding new courses.

In Autumn they are hoping their face to face sessions will return with some classes still being presented via zoom or their venues in Watford, Hemel Hempseed, Letchworth, Hertford and Stevenage. They will also be trialing evening classes too.

Students who have graduated from the development programme are able to join the college co-producing, co-writing and co-delivering courses. There are also opportunities to gain further experince by assisting in the classroom the with the college newsletter.

And lastly, their website has been upgraded for a better user experince.
