Facilitator Training for Education Settings



Facilitator Training for Education Settings

Good relationships need to be at the heart of everything a school does, if effective teaching and learning are to take place.”


At Restorative Now we view restorative practice as an inclusive approach to relationship building, valuing the voice of the other and the collective responsibility of the group for the wellbeing of every member of the school community. This approach to community building uses restorative enquiry to grow engagement and learning, leading to successful outcomes which include increased attendance, reduction in exclusion rates and less incidents of harmful behaviour.

This training takes an in depth look at the restorative approach, equipping participants with the skills to manage a range of situations and to think about how their organisation can incorporate this highly effective approach to promote change. It is delivered over ten, 90 minute modules. and is suitable for people of all experience levels. The cohort will be made up of 12 participants drawn from a variety of educational settings.

Areas covered during the training include:

  • The origins, ethos and values of the Restorative Practice
  • Common interventions models
