Join two experienced educators and Restorative Practices experts, on 17th August at 12:00pm BST (GMT +1), for a chat by the fireside as they discuss Restorative Practices. They will delve into a practitioner discussion about the role of Restorative Practices in international school, exploring the relationship between RP and ‘consequences’ that can arise when implementing all things restorative.

The fireside chat is hosted by:

  • Alistair Goold, Founder of Restorative360 and High School IBDP Teacher at the International School of Kenya 

Alistair is the founder of Restorative360 and is a passionate advocate for Restorative Practices in Education.  A graduate of both Glasgow and Strathclyde Universities, Alistair is in his eighteenth year of teaching and his third year at the International School of Kenya, where he teaches Social Sciences, IB Global Politics and Theory of Knowledge, as well as being a Grade Level Leader.  Prior to that he taught History and was ToK coordinator for nine years at the British International School of Jeddah. 

Before entering Education, Alistair spent several years as a youth worker in inner city Glasgow, working in various urban priority areas, where he adopted and developed restorative approaches. He is scheduled to complete his MSc in Restorative Practices in Oct 2023. Alistair offers a variety of workshops to international schools seeking to embrace Restorative Practices, ranging from a 2 hour taster session to a 3 day deep dive.
