Applications Open for Free Online Restorative Practice Training 


Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council is encouraging local community, youth, voluntary and statutory agencies to sign up to a free online accredited restorative practice training programme.

Commencing on Wednesday 10 March, the free online training programme aims to give a clear understanding of the concept of restorative practice and how it helps proactively build relationships and a sense of community to prevent conflict and wrongdoing.

Over the course of six online sessions, participants will cover restorative practice techniques to help reduce crime, violence and bullying; strengthen civil society; provide effective leadership; restore relationships; and repair harm within their local communities.

Participant learning will take place through activities and discussion, and participants must complete an assignment to achieve accreditation.

The programme will take place from 6pm to 9pm on:

  • Wednesday 10 March
  • Wednesday 24 March
  • Wednesday 31 March
  • Wednesday 7 April
  • Wednesday 14 April
  • Wednesday 21 April.

The accredited training programme is facilitated by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council’s PEACE IV Programme in partnership with the Northern Ireland Alternatives and Community Restorative Justice Ireland.

This project is supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
