This diploma will take you through what mediation is and how it is used in dispute resolution, learning how its techniques are so effective in resolving bitter and entrenched disputes. 

All of our mediation trainers are practising mediators and have carried out not just private mediation sessions but have advised, designed and run government mediation services including work for the Office of the Public Guardian, the Ministry of Justice and the Court of Protection. They bring not just experience but a passion for mediation and our courses are widely considered to be the best mediation training available.
