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.
The course covers the practice of restorative approaches and how to run meetings with those who have been harmed (victims and perpetrators). This course is suitable for people who want to facilitate restorative cases and covers how to facilitate meetings whilst remaining impartial.
Restorative conferences allow those who have been most affected by an
incident to come together to share their feelings, describe how they have been affected and develop a plan to repair the harm done and prevent a recurrence.
NOTICE: This event is Days 3 & 4 of our Basic Restorative Practices event, and it can be applied toward graduate education.
Day 3 in the State of the Art series brings together practitioners, researchers and advocates who are engaged in implementing and innovating restorative approaches with young people.
The day will be a blend of presentation with individual and shared reflection and discussion. The aim of this series is to explore together what is state of the art with regard to restorative approaches and where can we go next.
This course will be run by Restorative Justice 4 Schools. Our personal experience of implementing a restorative approach comes from working directly within schools, this allows us to contextualise the implementation and delivering of restorative outcomes to pupils and staff and talk about any barriers you are likely to meet and how to overcome them
