BTEC Level 3 Advanced Award in Principles of Restorative Justice

It’s about putting victims needs at the centre of the criminal justice system and finding positive solutions to crime by encouraging offenders to face up to their actions.

This qualification provides facilitator training that equips candidates with the skills, knowledge, and the ability to identify and practice appropriate restorative approaches in a variety of settings from informal to formal.
