SLaM Recovery College and the Involvement Register

Hi D,

Apologies you have not received a reply.

I met with Gabrielle and Kirsty last week and I can clarify the following.

In terms of the Recovery College we have clarified there are three types of roles:

  1. Peer Recovery Trainers on Trust contracts (fixed hours):

If you are work for the Recovery College as a peer Recovery Trainer employed directly by the Trust, you can also do other involvement activity to a maximum of 30 hours on the IR per month

i.e. the contracted hours those people work for the recovery college are not included in IR hours.

  1. Associate Peer Recovery Trainers: on Trust contracts with no fixed hours but negotiated on a termly basis – If you work for the Recovery College as an Associate Peer Recovery Trainer employed directly by the Trust you can also do other involvement activity to a maximum of 30 hours on the IR per month

i.e. the contracted hours those people work for the recovery college are not included in IR hours.

  1. Sessional Peer Recovery Trainers: occasional sessional work (for example one workshop per term). These people can be paid through the involvement register and these hours will be part of the 30 hours per month involvement activity.

NB The Recovery College will try not to use ad-hoc self-employed providers unless they are external and we cannot source this expertise from within the Trust. It is intended that people who work for the Recovery College wherever possible, will be employed by the Recovery College for this work and not paid via the IR.

We recognise there will be some individual cases at present where people are applying for associate peer trainers posts who are currently being paid for recovery college work via the IR. We are working with them to bring this in line with the above.

Hope this helps D.

Best wishes

Ann
