Finding a mediation training provider is easy, finding a good mediation training provider requires some insight.
The mediation training market place is complex and confusing, with many seemingly credible claims and promises. We have spoken with many who can give a different view on those claims and promises, having attended those courses.
We are the largest re-trainer of mediators and mediation services in the UK and offer the insight and market intelligence to help inform your choices. We are a principled and ethical provider and are keen for you to make the best choice for your area of interest. We regular point people to competitors and other providers if their model or course fits best with your career or area of interest.

Choosing a workplace mediation training provider
There are very few specialist workplace mediation training providers. On the surface there are many similarities however the models and approach can be quite different. Some models fit better with particular organisational cultures. Contact us for advice and recommendations. Training workplace mediators can be a significant investment that can recoup its value many times over, or it can be an expensive exercise that needs to be repeated three years later. We bring the insight and expertise that comes from 20 years experience in training and setting up workplace mediation services.
Choosing a family mediation training provider (Separation under the Family Law Act)
The Family Mediation Council and the College of Mediators list recognised training providers.
Choosing a family conflict mediation training provider (Parents, couples, parent to child, sibling and extended family)
There are very few training providers who specialise in this area. This is a very different area from separation and divorce mediation and the skill set, value base and approach are strongly different. Get in touch for advice and information.
Choosing a civil & commercial mediation training provider
The Civil Mediation Council lists relevant training providers.
Choosing a neighbour and community mediation training provider
There are many local providers and the sector is variable in terms of quality, service standards and costs. There are some excellent services providing great training and other courses which are very basic. We can provide an overview of the range of options and costs.
Choosing a SEND mediation training provider
The Department of Education has recently conducted a standards setting exercise which provides guidelines on training, levels of case work, CPD and supervision requirements. See the College of Mediators for the standards.
