A Restorative Approach (RA) is inspired by the philosophy and practices of Restorative Justice, which puts repairing harm done to relationships and people at the heart of its response to conflict.
This Restorative Justice Council (RJC) approved course provides intensive, interactive facilitator training, focused on building an understanding of a restorative ethos and developing effective facilitation skills which enable participants to facilitate safe and effective restorative processes in their setting.
This course is delivered by experienced restorative practitioners and aims to fully train individuals to facilitate restorative processes in a range of settings. As with all Royal Greenwich restorative training, the focus is on the synthesis of effective practice alongside theoretical understanding.
After the Facilitator course, participants can go on to undertake the Restorative Approaches: Theory and Practice Level 5 programme. This is a course credit rated by the University of Greenwich and RJC, which will further develop their skills in this area and enable them to gain 60 credits at Level 5.
