REC courses in your area

Course prospectus and timetable

Although we speak of the REC as a centre, our courses are delivered in various community venues across Dorset, including, but not exclusively: Bournemouth, Poole, Wareham, Dorchester, Bridport, Blandford, Shaftesbury and Weymouth.

Our courses have been designed to empower people to find hope, to see and embrace opportunity through building skills and to gain control by putting these skills into practice.

Some of our courses are one-off sessions, while others are spread across several weeks. Please see our prospectus for full course information.

Our timetable of courses is broken down into three terms, similar to further education, Spring (January – Easter), Summer (May - July) and Autumn (September – December).


Please note due to the current COVID-19 situation, and following government guidance, we are not currently able to facilitate courses in the community.

Please see learn online a new section of resources which we are developing and please keep checking here for updates regarding our next term.


If you have any questions about the REC, or would like give feedback on REC courses, please get in touch.
