Accredited Practitioner, Consultant and Assessor
Janet Clark has been involved in restorative practice since 2001, when she first began as one of the first Schools Coordinators, under the Restorative Justice in Schools Project funded by the Youth Justice Board, and then joined the Bristol RAiS (Restorative Approaches in Schools Project) as Project Manager. Winning an award for "Innovation", the project was hugely successful launching a Schools Guide in 2009, in the presence of HRH Princess Anne. This work was ground breaking in embedding restorative practice and brought about some thinking about what using a restorative approach would look like in schools. "Restorative Schools, Restorative Communities" focuses on some of the schools and their journeys.
Janet has supported a number of schools in implementing RA in their schools and colleges and delivers Training, Consultancy, facilitation and Assessment in a wide variety of settings, including Youth Offending Services, the Police, Probation, Educational Support Services, Pupil Referral Units, Special Schools, Community mediation, the workplace, family disputes, colleges, secondary, and primary educational settings.
Janet is a qualified A1 Assessor for the Level 4 Diploma in Restorative Practice RP Advisor to the Bristol VQ Centre, Assessor and Consultant for the Restorative Justice Council’s (RJC), RSQM and Direct Accreditation Award and is an accredited practitioner with the RJC.
Janet has recently received a Volunteers Award for her voluntary work with CALM’s Restorative Justice Project as a restorative justice facilitator.
