Restorative Solutions CIC and Red Snapper Learning Accreditation Scheme March 2015

“Time to Celebrate”

Originally launched on 31st March 2014 as part of the Restorative Forum we are now a year on and moving from strength to strength Restorative Solutions are working alongside The CSP Academy, part of Red Snapper Learning. A combination of accessibility, efficacy and integrity, backed by Edexcel (Pearson Group) makes the scheme particularly appealing to Restorative Practitioners.

Accreditation began with the development and offer of the BTEC Level 3 Advance Award Practitioner Training in Restorative Approaches. There are now at the end of just one year 133 Practitioners either Accredited or shortly to become accredited.

Quality training, accessible accreditation, easy to book complete your portfolio online.

Subsequent development of the Case Supervisor Role and BTEC Level 4 Professional award Restorative Approaches to qualify for Accreditation is proving surprisingly popular launched formally just this year.

Today saw the first Case Supervisor achieve accreditation with another 11 enrolled and soon to be qualified this is the only Accredited qualification available for Case Supervisors. Another 3 courses are planned in the next 2 months.

We have also recognised the BTEC Level 4 Professional award Restorative Approaches for Managers of Restorative Practice in Organisations bringing a further 300 plus to the accreditation scheme.

The Accreditation Scheme is now appropriately sited within the Student Zone of the Restorative Forum.

Where in the coming months it is planned to develop the requirements for Continued Professional Development (CPD) including on line resources and e learning, see below.

Student Zone

This is an area for current or prospective students to interact amongst themselves and with their trainers. This area also hosts a private section for trainers where RS can posts “jobs” for freelance trainers to bid on. In future, it is planned that a number of CPD activities will be hosted in this area.

One single payment of £325.00 plus VAT gives access to accreditation the support and the Forum are free, no annual fees. We can even provide ‘a private forum’ for your organisation at no cost.

What people say about Restorative Solutions

I'm so glad I am working with RJ. I don't know who would listen to me if it wasn’t for you.
A Person Harmed by Crime
RJ is very underrated and I certainly think we should be using it more.
A Professional who Referred Someone into our Service
Very satisfied – it’s been a great service. A worthwhile process for me and I hope for the offenders. Staff have been great and I would like to thank them.
A victim
It was the right thing to do. Both victims told me to let go of what happened. I didn't want to hear it but they both forgave me and said I should move on. I have taken that on and thought about it and I have come to terms with what happened. You've helped me significantly. It's as though my head has been lifted of a gigantic weight.
An Offender
Thanks for your time today. I feel like you understand R so well, I really hope you can help him to learn how to be happy.
Feedback from a family in East Kent
Restorative Justice offers a unique opportunity for victims and survivors to move on from and overcome the trauma that can be left with them after experiencing crime. I am exceedingly proud of the work that the team at Restorative Solutions do in supporting our community. We should always consider the needs of victims of crime and this service exemplifies that sentiment and allows so many to put behind them what can be the worst experience of their lives.
Marc Jones, Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner and Chair of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners.
