Insynch Pathways awarded Registered Training Provider status

The RJC is pleased to announce that Insynch Pathways have been awarded Registered Training Provider status along with approval for their Foundation Level Restorative Justice Facilitator Training course. By achieving Registered Training Provider status, Insynch Pathways have demonstrated their commitment to delivering high quality restorative practice training to nationally agreed standards.

Formally led by Mary Hinton, Insynch has worked in partnership with Sussex Pathways to deliver restorative justice training for many years. Sadly, following a short illness, Mary passed away in December 2020. To maintain her legacy, colleagues have continued to deliver practitioner training developed by Mary.

Insych Pathways’ Facilitator and Practitioner training course provides participants with the skills to facilitate both informal and formal restorative processes, including face to face and family group conferences. Underpinned by the RJC’s Practitioner Registration Framework and the National Occupational Standards for Restorative Practice (Skills for Justice), it provides participants with an in-depth understanding of how to apply their facilitation skills across a range of settings and situations.

As this is an RJC Approved Course, those successfully completing their training are able to apply for Foundation Registered Practitioner status.

Jim Simon, the RJC’s chief executive said:

“I am delighted that Insynch Pathways have been successful in their application for Registered Training Provider status. By meeting the standards set out in our Training Provider and Approved Course Frameworks, training participants and commissioners can be confident in the quality of training being provided.”

Shirl Tanner, Insynch’s Chief Executive said:

“'Insynch Pathways' being approved by the RJC as Registered Training Provider is a great honour which we will hold with pride in 'Loving memory of Mary Hinton' who this achievement is dedicated to. The Registration process has not only helped us to refine our current work, it has also supported us to develop our training for the future. The process has been a real eye opener but approval from the RJC validates we are on the right path.”
