Transform your school culture through Restorative Practices

Education leader and expert Adam Voigt is bringing his unique blend of storytelling, experience and good common sense to New Zealand educators.

It’s tough being a teacher these days, isn’t it?

You want to make a difference in your students’ lives, and cultivate an environment that is built on mutual trust and collaboration.

But increasing admin, challenging student behaviour, teacher shortages and that never ending to do list makes it feel almost impossible.

What if there was a better way?

Implementing Restorative Practices as the underpinning methodology for change will trigger a revolution in teacher practice and cultural leadership. It will help you foster a strong school culture, build effective relationships with all your stakeholders, resolve conflict in a healthy way, and reduce bullying incidents at your school.

You’ll see firsthand the power of restorative practices for your school. By the day’s end, you’ll be ready to flip the script and create an environment of consistency and high expectations, delivering greater outcomes for you and your students.

‘When first hearing Adam speak I felt a strong connection to what he was saying about changing school culture, and the way we deal with behaviour.
These workshops opened up the conversation about a way of teaching students that allows them to take responsibility for how their actions affect others and sheds light into the importance of teachers building meaningful relationships with students.
Adam’s energy and realism is what makes his workshops one of kind.
I look forward to the next one!’
