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).



We are pleased to be able to return to offering some courses in the community following the changes to COVID-19 restrictions. We are returning with a reduced offer to begin with and plan to develop this offer taking in to account the experience and feedback as we go.

Our courses can be found on our timetable at the top of our learn online page. The timetable combines all our webinars and community courses.


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