Training & Development

Wales Restorative Approaches Partnership's training has been awarded the Restorative Justice Council's Training Provider Quality Mark and the Restorative Services Quality Mark.

Our training has been nominated and shortlisted for many awards. Every training session we facilitate results in further training requests, because our clients enjoy the experience so much and find the impact of their new knowledge and skills can be life changing. 

We provide restorative approaches training of up to five days, as well as shorter tasters and continuing professional development courses. Some basic information on the content of our core training is listed in the table below. Our short courses will be listed on our events page. You can find further information on our resources page in our 'Restorative Wales' offer document. 

Please note that in order to be a restorative practitioner or trainer there are specific, stringent requirements about the amount of training and practice you must undertake. There are also requirements to complete this training and practice over a minimum period of time. All our training is best practice and follows Restorative Justice Council requirements guidelines. 

We have designed sector specific training programmes such as the Restorative Approaches in Schools (RAIS) programme, which comes with a three year road map. If you would like to know more about any of our training and development programmes please contact us. We are delighted to offer a free, no obligation first meeting to discuss how we can work together to meet your needs.
