Course content

The field of Restorative Practice may be regarded as a growing field of practice across Europe over the last ten years. The relevance of this restorative movement is reflected in Ulsters' postgraduate and undergraduate restorative practices training provision which attracts participants from the full range of criminal justice agencies, the worlds of primary and post primary school education, established and emerging community restorative justice organisations and other settings. 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.
