Level 5 Restorative Approaches Course (Refresher option)

Description
Restorative practices are increasingly being recognised as effective tools for repairing relationships that have been damaged through conflict and harm. Effective training in restorative facilitation is crucial to ensuring restorative processes delivered in any setting are safe, positive experiences for all involved. The Restorative Justice Council (RJC) champions standards for restorative practice and in 2012 it launched the Accredited Practitioner Register for restorative practice. The Royal Borough of Greenwich has developed a unique training programme - credit rated by the University of Greenwich - which combines three crucial components to ensure the development of effective RA facilitators, while supporting advancement onto the accredited register.

The Course will include:
  • Theory – supporting participants to gain knowledge of the ethos, background and relevance of a Restorative Approach, with academic assignments to develop theoretical understanding.
  • Practice - practical skill development to enable participants to deal with harm in their work settings in a restorative way. Through this element of the course, participants evidence that their practice meets the national recognised standards in restorative practice (enabling entry onto the RJC Practitioner register).
  • Sustainability - a consideration of how to implement restorative approaches in a specific context, including practical resources for embedding a high quality restorative service.

Impact Statement
Pupils:
  • Will develop essential life skills in conflict resolution, problem solving and emotional literacy: helping them to understand how to positively repair relationships damaged through conflict
Practitioners:
  • Will work towards a L5 University accreditation and on completion, can apply to achieve registration with the Restorative Justice Council - joining a growing body of accredited restorative practitioners
Settings:
  • Will benefit from having staff with specialist skills and knowledge who can support an enhanced conciliatory culture across the setting
Audience

This course has been specifically designed for participants who have already undertaken training in restorative facilitation (either a 3 or 4 day course), have some experience of facilitating restorative processes and wish to gain Level 5 Accreditation.
