Introducing Restorative Practice

Andy Battell, from ‘Restorative Practice Bearnú’ and an RP Quality Specialist with The Childhood Development Initiative (CDI,) in Tallaght, will be facilitating an interactive webinar, on Monday the 16th of May, at 7.00 p.m., to promote the use and benefits of Restorative Practices (RP) within schools and the education sector. The webinar will detail key components from the RP Toolset, as part of a succinct introduction to RP and will also give participants an opportunity to understand how RP works. The webinar will also provide information on training courses available through the Wexford Education Centre.

If you are interested in:

  • enhancing, or developing better relationships with students, colleagues and parents;
  • establishing more effective responses to challenging behaviour and behaviour that causes harm; and
  • reducing disciplinary incidents;

we encourage you to attend and see for yourself, how RP could benefit you and your school, or education facility.

Facilitator: Andy Battell

Andy worked for many years as a Training Consultant with both the NHS and Social Services in the London and South-East England areas. He devised and delivered training, to staff working with people with learning disabilities, and worked directly with service users themselves. Using pro-active approaches, he also coached and mentored staff to support service-users, who displayed behaviour that seriously challenged services.

After moving to Waterford in 1999, Andy managed The Pathways Project for 11 years, with the Waterford & South Tipperary Community Youth Service, providing mentoring supports and Progression Programmes to Early School Leavers. He then managed the School Completion Programme (SCP) na Siúire, in Waterford City and South Kilkenny, for 7 years.

In 2011, Andy became a Certified Trainer, with the International Institute of Restorative Practice (IIRP) and in 2016, a Certified Trainer of Trainers. In 2014, he co-founded the Waterford Restorative Practice Network.

Andy joined the Childhood Development Initiative in 2017, as a Quality Specialist and has facilitated all CDI’s training, and training of trainers’ courses, both face-to-face and online; notably, with a number of schools in Munster. Between 2019 and 2021, he was involved in the writing, co-delivery and assessment, of an online Professional Training in Restorative Practices (TReP) course, as part of an Erasmus+ programme.

Since 2012, Andy has also, devised and delivered a number of QQI Level 4, 5 and 6 courses, with asylum seekers and refugees, in Waterford City and currently works with the Mukisa Project.
