4 day Restorative Practice Facilitator Training with Level 5 Accreditation
Taking place on 20th, 27th February and 6th and 13th March, this course provides intensive, interactive facilitator training, focusing on building an understanding of restorative values and the practice of effective facilitation skills. The aim of the training is to create effective restorative facilitators who contribute to the creation of a respectful and inclusive community setting.
Training will include:
- Theory - supporting participants to develop a theoretical understanding of restorative processes and gain knowledge of the ethos, background and relevance of a Restorative Approach across several settings.
- Practice - practical skill development to enable participants to deal with conflict and harm in their work settings in a restorative way. This includes skills practice and role play using the key restorative questions to develop facilitator skills across the continuum of restorative processes from informal to formal. All participants will be given an opportunity to practice using RA facilitator skills and gain feedback.
- Sustainability - a consideration of how to implement restorative approaches in a specific work context, including practical resources for embedding a high quality restorative service.
The initial training course takes places over 4 days. Students who wish to pursue Level 5 accreditation will then undertake independent research, work-based activities and network meetings over a 12 month period. Through these activities, participants build a portfolio, which demonstrates their knowledge and evidences how they meet the learning requirements – the portfolio is submitted at the end of the course. On completion of the accreditation programme, students will achieve 60 credits at Level 5 (credit rated by the University of Greenwich) and can apply to join the Restorative Justice Council’s (RJC) Accredited Practitioner register.
