Mediation Training

Gomediate delivers an unaccredited, three-days’ course in Mediation Skills and a two-days’ course in Restorative Justice Skills. I also offer a pretty full-on four-days course that combines the two. These courses can be delivered two, three or four days back to back (which I recommend) or over several weeks to reduce disruption to your workflow.

The training is intense, interactive and fun 😊

Below are some quotes from leaners, my prices, and breakdowns of what the courses cover. If you have any questions, please just ask.

Feedback from training evaluation forms:

‘Mike was fab – obviously came across as very experienced in his role and mediation! Thank you.’

‘Very useful course. Challenged my practice and methods we have used for years.’

‘A thoroughly enjoyable course; good trainer, passionate and knowledgeable about the topic.’ 

‘Really enjoyed the different games and ways of learning – better than a boring PowerPoint.’

‘Probably the most enjoyable training I have been on! So glad it was active and not just PowerPoint! I learned way more this way.’

‘Very interesting and tiring. Skills that could definitely be used in my role as a Family Support Worker.’

‘It was a great session, very eye-opening and I think I will take it into account next time I’m in a conflict situation.’

‘Enjoyed all which will be beneficial in everyday work.’

‘Interesting exercises that were relevant and made good points.’

My day rate is £895. Therefore, it is £2,685 for the three-days’ Mediation Skills training course and £1,790.00 for the two-days’ Restorative Justice Skills training course. I can deliver an intensive four-days’ course that includes training in Mediation Skills and Restorative Justice for £3,580. There is no VAT to add to these prices and no expenses. These prices assume that I am coming to you and that you can provide a training venue. I recommend a maximum of twelve learners per course so that everyone gets enough of my attention and experience. However, it is up to you how many people you choose to put on one of my training courses.
