Skills for life
Acorn Academy provides behavioural change, emotional wellbeing and addiction awareness training courses for service users, professionals and in-house staff.
Working with Calico Enterprise, Acorn Academy also delivers Training with impact, which provides unique and innovative training opportunities to vulnerable and disadvantaged customers and tenants for the Calico Group.
The Academy is recognised as a centre for learning by the National Open College Network (NOCN). Furthermore, we are able to develop bespoke training packages upon request.
We provide lived-in experience to support people through any kind of recovery.
So for our service users, we are supportive companions on their journey. We’re trusted to lead the way because we’ve been there before.
Acorn Academy also run a Peer Mentoring course throughout the year in Stockport. Here, you can improve communication skills and understand why healthy boundaries are so important in relationships.
