Training and development

There is a major focus on training and development in restorative approaches in Norfolk. To support this we:

  • Organise tutor-led training
  • Provide awareness-raising presentations to groups around the county
  • Support teams and schools to access training

Who is training for?

Restorative approaches training is suitable for everyone who wants to:

  • Develop non-confrontational, compassionate communication skills
  • Strengthen their relationship-based practice 
  • Learn new responses to challenging behaviour and conflict

For example, those working with children, young people and/or their parents or carers in any setting. This could include but is not limited to all staff working in schools, foster carers, social care staff, youth workers, volunteers and their managers.

What training is available?

We hold the Restorative Justice Council’s Training Provider Quality Mark (TPQM). This gives commissioners and learners confidence that the training meets recognised international standards. We can provide bespoke training and are able to offer:

  • Short introductory training sessions
  • One or two-day courses
