Registration & target group: In total, 20 participants will be admitted for this training. Registration for participants will be on first-come-first-serve basis. However, the host academy reserves the right not to admit participants if not fitting the target group criteria or eligibility criteria of the project*. In addition, in order to stimulate a wide geographical spread of participants, only two participants will be admitted per EPTA member organization. It is important that participants speak very good English because this training is very interactive and will require flowing conversation and discussion. Additional registrants will be placed on a waiting list and admitted if spots remain open. After registering, people will be informed about their status (admitted, waiting list, rejected).
This training is of equal importance for both staff working in training academies as well as people working in prisons. However, if coming from prisons, the training would be more beneficial for managers who might be able to influence usage of restorative practices.
