Synrj Restorative and Relational Processes

​​​​​SynRJ awarded the TPQM (24 May 2017)

The RJC has announced that SynRJ has been

awarded the Restorative Justice Council (RJC)

Training Provider Quality Mark (TPQM).

Jon Collins, the RJC’s chief executive, said:
“I would like to congratulate SynRJ, which has demonstrated its commitment to providing the highest quality restorative practice training through successfully completing the TPQM.

The TPQM is a quality mark for restorative training providers. It enables training providers to show that they have been externally recognised, while also giving commissioners and learners confidence that the training delivered meets recognised standards.

SynRJ joins other TPQM awardees – working across sectors from criminal justice through education to care – delivering high quality restorative training.

John Boulton and Les Davey, SynRJ co-directors, said:
“We were elated when we learnt that we had passed the TPQM, as we were determined to give SynRJ the same status and RJC recognition that we achieved previously with IIRP Europe. Through working with the assessor, the TPQM gives you the chance to thoroughly examine standards and procedures. It is a robust process which can only lead to higher standards, quality training provision and a better service to learners and host organisations.”
