Key Facts

Delivery Method

The Certified Mediation Training programme is delivered in three x two day modules over a two to three month period. It is highly participative and practical.  Learning approaches include short lecture inputs and facilitated group discussion.  Much of the learning happens from insights derived from 'working-through' case studies/role plays as well as from on-going feedback during these sessions.   The number of participants admitted to each training programme is limited in order to optimise the practical nature and learning opportunities of this programme.
