The RJC is pleased to announce that Norfolk Children’s Services has been awarded the Training Provider Quality Mark (TPQM).

Jon Collins, the RJC’s chief executive, said:

“Norfolk Children’s Services staff based in Norfolk Youth Offending Team have demonstrated through successfully completing the Training Provider Quality Mark (TPQM) that they are providing the highest quality restorative practice training and I would like to congratulate the team for this achievement.”

The Training Provider Quality Mark (TPQM) is a quality mark for restorative training providers. It enables training providers to show that they have been externally recognised, while also giving commissioners and learners confidence that the training delivered meets recognised international standards. Norfolk Children’s Services joins other TPQM awardees – working across sectors from criminal justice through education to care – delivering high quality restorative training.

Patrycja Salbut-Jezior, restorative approaches manager, Children’s Services, Norfolk Youth Offending Team, said:

“We are very proud to have achieved the TPQM in recognition of the hard work that we have put in. The procedure was straightforward and easy to follow, the assessment was not intimidating and the overall process helped us improve our internal procedures.”
