Restorative practice puts repairing harm done to relationships and people over and above the need for assigning blame and dispensing punishment. This programme attracts graduates from a multitude of backgrounds, and will develop the role of anyone whose career has taken them into working with families, with local communities, within the criminal justice system or in education systems. It offers you the chance to develop the skills required to establish restorative justice processes, preparing parties, facilitating storytelling, dialogue and problem-solving and delivering restorative interventions. A PgCert exit award is available upon completion of three modules (60 credit points).
The course is designed to help students apply learning in the contexts they work and live in. A central assumption is that participants want to critically engage with the concept of being a restorative practice practitioner. The teaching and learning style is participative; pragmatic; and underpinned by research, theory and experience.
