What types of mediator are we looking for?

Please note we do not provide Family mediation (Divorce & Separation, under the Family Law Act).

We do provide mediation to businesses where there are relationship issues.

Please note we do not provide Civil & Commercial mediation (business to business, financial, contract and commercial disputes). 

We do provide Workplace mediation, where relationships are on-going and the key issues are relationships, behaviour and communication.

Please note we do not provide Employment mediation where relationships are ending and termination and settlement packages are to be negotiated. 

We do provide Neighbour & Community Mediation to deal with neighbour disputes, ASB and noise nuisance. We provide a conflict resolution service rather than a dispute resolution service. 

Relevant mediator training

You may have mediation experience or not. We are interested in the quality and relevance of your mediation training and personal qualities, skills and experience. There are many mediation courses in the marketplace, increasingly these are now generic courses, and we are looking for tailored or specific mediation training. 

Example: Workplace Mediator

If you are a workplace mediator we will be looking for specific training from a workplace mediation specialist. If you have trained with a generic civil & commercial mediation provider you will need to demonstrate substantial CPD and additional workplace mediation training.

Example: Neighbour & Community Mediator

Ideally a recognised, independent learning body will accredit your training e.g.: OCN. If not, please send details of course content and identify the trainer(s). 

Mediation Training Accreditation

Please note we only accept accreditations offered by recognised independent learning providers e.g.: NOCN, OCN, ILM, RSA, OCR, NVQ. 

If you have had civil & commercial mediation training with CEDR, ADR Group, Regent's, London School of Mediation or been trained by a lawyer mediator, you will need other forms of mediation training or training in related interpersonal skills e.g.: coaching qualification. 

Please note your mediation training should be at least 6 days. If the course was 5 days please demonstrate additional knowledge, commitment, training and CPD on equality and diversity issues. If the training was 4 days or less, please do not apply. If the course was a distance learning course, please do not apply.
