IMPACT Justice: Restorative Practices Workshops - Belize

For Release Upon Receipt - Thursday, November 3, 2016

Approximately 123 Educators, Ministry of Education Officers, and other stakeholders will receive training in Restorative Practices in four workshops being sponsored by the Canadian Government funded Improved Access to Justice (IMPACT Justice) Project. This training is being provided in partnership with the Ministry of Education, Belize.

The workshops took place at the Best Western Belize Biltmore Plaza Hotel on October 31st to November 1st (2 workshops) and November 2nd to 3rd, 2016 (2 workshops) respectively. At the opening of the first workshop, remarks were delivered on behalf of Professor Velma Newton, Regional Project Director of the IMPACT Justice Project and Dr. Candy Armstrong, Director of the Education Support Services Unit of the Ministry of Education also gave remarks.

The provision of training in Restorative Practices falls under the Alternative Dispute Resolution component of the IMPACT Justice Project and is intended to expose educators to alternate methods of resolving disputes in schools, whether these disputes arise amongst students, students and teachers and even amongst teachers themselves. The objective of the training is to ultimately reduce the instances of violence and bullying in schools, improve behaviour, improve leadership, restore relationships and repair harm.

IMPACT Justice has facilitated similar training in several other CARICOM countries and the feedback has been positive.
