Restorative Now awarded Registered Training Provider Status

The RJC are pleased to announce that Restorative Now have been awarded Registered Training Provider status.

Long standing members of the RJC, Restorative Now, are the first training provider to transfer from our Training Provider Quality Mark (TPQM) to the RJC’s newly launched Registered Training Provider status.

Jim Simon, the RJC’s chief executive said:

“Having held the TPQM since May 2015, we were delighted that Restorative Now decided to be assessed against our Registered Training Provider Framework. They have continued to demonstrate that they are delivering training to the highest standard.”

Holding Registered Training Provider status with the RJC demonstrates that Restorative Now are committed to delivering high quality restorative practice training which meets the 5 core standards set out in our Training Provider Framework.

Janine Carroll, Restorative Now’s director said:

“I decided to apply because I consider it important to be affiliated with the Restorative Justice Council, as I recognise the importance of their role in championing the place of Restorative Practice and membership of such Professional Organisations allows for collaboration on standards and initiatives. The registration process allowed for a keen scrutiny of the training approach and course development related to learning styles and reasonable adjustments.”

In addition to becoming a Registered Training Provider, Restorative Now have also be awarded Approved Course status for their Restorative Practice Facilitator Training Course.

Approved Course status provides confidence to course participants that this training meets the minimum requirements for foundation level training; ensuring that participants are well prepared to start their career as a restorative practitioner.  

This intensive three-day Restorative Practice Facilitator Training Course, also offered by way of 9 Online Modules, explores the ethos and values of Restorative Practice, and its origins and application across a diversity of settings. Participants consider the neuroscience of conflict, empathy and shame and the concept of emotional literacy. The context for much of the behaviour they will witness in their work is also explored, alongside the diversity of responses evidenced in communities when conflict occurs. The course participants consider the able use of the Restorative Enquiry Questions and the Art of Engagement, which is a key component in the course. They undertake skills practice to evidence capacity for safe, effective Restorative Practice Facilitation with parties in dispute. The place for this skill set and culture focus in the participants’ work is examined alongside the science of culture change and implementation strategies. Participants’ ongoing requirements for coaching support and skills development are recognised and planned for.
