What we offer
Our training and consultancy services are modular and adaptable to the needs of each school environment:
- Consultation and development planning with Headteachers and members of their SLT – please contact us now to plan for the academic year beginning in September 2018.
- Staff engagement workshops delivered though inset or after school, for the whole staff team, or teams within the whole staff group.
- An intensive 3-day multi-agency Restorative Facilitator training for working with young people. Participation in this is suitable for Pastoral Care leads. Successful completion of the training means each participant can register with the Restorative Justice Council as an Associate Practitioner. RJ Working can support ongoing learning and steps towards full accreditation with the Restorative Justice Council.
- The 3-day ‘Ripple Effect’ training for ten students and two key staff members who can support their next steps following the training. This is an innovative programme which has been developed in collaboration with secondary schools and universities in Cornwall. It is attracting national attention and being independently evaluated by Ipsos MORI.
- The development of restorative ‘Peer Mentoring’ and Peer Mediation’ programmes. These must be safely supported by staff fully understanding their responsibilities being appropriately shared with students and children.
- A Whole School approach, drawing on all of the above, depending on the unique school environment, and the building blocks already in place. This includes the co-production of Policies with students taking increasing levels of responsibility. This level of commitment is associated with multiple benefits and impacts and can lead to achieving the Quality Mark of the Restorative Justice Council.
- Work with the wider community which may involve restorative approaches to neighbourhood disputes. We are especially keen to work with groups of parents who want to support their children’s social and emotional education through restorative approaches, and with schools who want to relate to parents using this model.
