Family Learning Signature (a Restorative Practice approach) at Carr Manor Community School, Nov 2012.

Example of a completed Family Learning Signature

In the caption for this video, Leeds City Learning Centres writes, "The Family Learning Signature is a simple self assessment tool which generates information about how a family ‘learns’ together. As we know, the ability of any individual to embrace learning and manage their own development is greatly influenced by the collective capacity and skills of the family. In identifying strengths, and areas to be developed, a family is assisted in its own learning development including an understanding of inherent resources which drive behaviour and attitude."

In the video Gregor Rae, chair and CEO of BusinessLab, the company based in Aberdeen, Scotland that developed the learning signature, says, "What we see is a kind of increasing interest internationally in the role of the signature as part and parcel of restorative practice. I think it’s mainly because it’s such an effective tool for engaging the families. ... It gives you tremendous insight into the kind of dynamics of the family, particularly the learning dynamics of the family."
