What will I learn?

  • Update yourself on recent developments within the profession
  • Hear about new opportunities for those in practice
  • Understand emerging case law impacting on the use on ADR
  • Discuss the challenges and benefits of remote mediation
  • Hone your skills and practice new techniques with your peers

This online version of our annual CPD & Mediation Skills Development Day is delivered via Zoom Pro by the same faculty of experienced practicing mediators as our ‘in person’ course.   It is intended for accredited mediators who wish to develop or refresh their skills after a break, and those in practice who require their annual 6 hours of CPD. All Accredited Mediators are required to undertake 6 hours of mediation specific Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in order to satisfy the Civil Mediation Council (CMC) and International standards. Our annual updates both meet this requirement and ensure that standards of practice are kept at their highest levels.

The one day course ensures that mediators are able to satisfy the annual requirement for Continuing Professional Development but perhaps most importantly ensures they are up to date with developments within the profession and remain fluent in their practice.   

Beginning with an exploration and discussion of the benefits and challenges of mediating remotely via Zoom and similar platforms, delegates will benefit from a range of hints and tips to ensure they and their participants are fully protected. They will also have the opportunity to learn and develop some additional skills required to make the best use of this alternative method of delivering mediation. 

The afternoon sessions consist of our popular and familar case study format, where delegates will in turn take roles as mediator, participant and observer and engage in peer discussion and feedback. 

Delegates will end the day with a general workshop and practice discussion with some opportunity for networking once the formal course concludes. 

There is also the exclusive obserrvation and demonstration at 1715.


Who is this for?

For accredited mediators who wish to refresh their skills after a break, or those in practice who require their annual 6 hours of CPD.
