Preventing Violent Youth Radicalisation E-course

Human Rights, Policy/Research


E-course content 

This CPD accredited e-course aims to train 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 young people at risk of group violence, marginalisation and violent radicalisation.

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.

What you will learn

At the end of the e-course, you will be able to:

  • Induct into the restorative justice theory and provide a critical overview including case studies of implementation
  • Increase the skills and knowledge of practitioners working or volunteering in formal and informal educational settings on the use of restorative practice, positive psychology and the Good Lives Model especially within the context of violent youth radicalisation
  • Increase the knowledge of educationalists and youth workers on violent youth radicalisation and implementing alternative positive approaches for prevention
  • Build resilience and knowledge that will ultimately lead to preventing youth violent radicalisation.
  • Practise the learning through case study workshops and test the overall knowledge, skills and experience through a CPD accredited exam.

What you require

There is no need for advance reading or preparation. Advance knowledge of restorative justice is not needed. The course is structured in such a way that it adapts to all knowledge needs.
