Preventing violent youth radicalisation e-course: A restorative justice and human rights approach

This CPD accredited e-course aims to train, teachers, youth workers and other professionals working or volunteering in formal or informal educational settings.

It uses the values and practices of restorative justice and human rights in order to build their knowledge, skills and capacity when working with children and young people at risk of marginalisation, group violence and violent radicalisation. This course is particularly useful for teachers in primary and secondary education in the UK, and is funded by Southwark Council as part of the Positive Futures programme.

Successful completion will lead to CPD (Continuous Professional Development) Certification. Where young people take part and are registered with one of our Erasmus+ funded projects, YouthPass Certification is also provided.

The e-course can be paused as many times as you need, and completed in your own time. It takes approximately 8 non-stop hours to fully complete all modules and take the test. Additional reading material are also provided for further learning and research.
