Access to adult education that encompasses an awareness of the issues prevalent in the lives of those in addiction recovery will benefit from consultation with those delivering support, and those who are in need of support, to ensure that programmes meet the needs of people in recovery. The aim is to work with both groups to develop an asset based ‘Access to Learning’ Course. This will seek to support and maintain participation in adult learning in order to develop Recovery Capital, build self-efficacy, and enhance opportunities for social inclusion and community participation following a period of sustained habitual drug or alcohol misuse.
The main objectives of this project are:
- Use an extensive project management system to ensure the project is smoothly delivered
- Underpin effective project delivery by conducting a review of policy and practice in relation to drug recovery programmes across Europe
- Ensure the involvement of adults in addiction recovery and service providers
- Draw on data generated to develop material for an ‘Access to Learning’ Course Pack containing Core and Culture-Specific Learning Activities that address barriers to learning for recovering drug users
- Develop an Evaluation Toolkit to enable facilitators to assess the effectiveness of the Learning Activities
