This 'experience' for managers offers you an opportunity to get involved with a session of informal learning for promoting self help for recovery at Learn2b. You will experience the style of courses Learn2b teaches. These use a variety of occupational based media as the vehicle for informal learning with impact. This experience will give you the confidence to incorporate similar courses into your services.
You will have an opportunity to talk to learners who have described how their mental health and wellbeing hads been improved by participating in Learn2b. You will learn how using an Occupational Therapy model complements the informal learning of Learn2b and will have an opportunity to discuss this with a 3rd year OT student on placement.
Learn2b is an exciting and innovative partnership between Northamptonshire County Council Adult Learning and NHS Foundation Trust. The aim of Learn2b is to enhance wellbeing through a range of creative, social, recreational and therapeutic groups for people in thier local communities. By using learning as a tool Learn2b helps learners recognise their own talents, develop skills (cognitive and/or practical) and enable learners to find solutions for themselves using a variety of learning mediums such as arts/crafts/ dance/creative writing etc.
