You may be wondering what a Wellbeing College does or what it is for. The answer is simple: it exists to help you look after your wellbeing.
We’re funded by South Gloucestershire Council and the Clinical Commissioning Group and with them and other partners, we run a range of courses, drop in sessions, activities and holistic therapy sessions - completely free of charge.
We’re here to support you on every step of your learning journey but we recognise that some people might need more of a helping hand than others. Once you’ve enrolled, you’ll have a better idea of what type of journey you want to go on.
- Mentor – At this level, we’ll assign you a Wellbeing Mentor who will work with you for free for up to a year to create a plan of action aimed at improving your wellbeing. They will come to courses with you and offer regular support.
- Buddy – Your buddy will work with you while you go to three Wellbeing College sessions and make sure that you are getting the most out of the courses.
- Solo – You need minimal support to attend the college and can book yourself onto thing.
It’s really easy to use the college.
- If you’re confident, look for a course and book yourself on. Remember to still fill in the enrolment form!
- If you’d like to speak to someone, you can call us on 01454 821856. One of our student development advisors will take you through the enrolment form and help you work out which learning journey you are on and the support you might need. They will discuss courses with you and book you on to them.
- POP IN to Wellbeing HQ on a Tuesday or Thursday and speak to someone face to face for advice about your learning journey and the support you might need.
We hope you can see the college isn’t about qualifications or awards (although we do have some courses that offer that) it’s all about a healthier, happier you.
You could say being well is on our curriculum!
But don’t just take our word for it – we help thousands of students every year and here are some of their stories.
