Using Mediation Skills as Leaders and Professionals

Online Winter School 2020


(This course is now deferred until early 2021, date tbc soon.                                                                      If you are interested in joining us, please do contact

After the success of our recent online Summer School (read John’s blog about the Summer School here), we are launching a new Winter School online, using Zoom and our bespoke web-based platform for materials and other communication.

We are aware that Zoom (or its equivalents) will increasingly be used as a platform for negotiations and mediations and this training will probably be essential for many of us anyway.


The Course

The Winter School will be held from Monday 31 November to Thursday 3 December (morning) with a three-hour Orientation Workshop a week or two in advance (to be timed to suit the convenience of as many participants as possible).

We will space out sessions to give down time from online activity and each day will occupy approximately 6-7 hours of engagement time, with a 9am start and 6.15pm finish. There will be a large amount of practical workshop activity. 

To accommodate the shorter amount of engagement time than on residential courses, more materials will be available online in advance using podcasts and video vignettes.

This and all plenary sessions will be recorded; however, attendance during the full three and a half days is necessary – for the sake of colleagues on the course and to ensure satisfactory performance for certification purposes.

For those who wish to continue to full assessment and Core accreditation, given the uncertainty of when we might return to face to face activity of the sort that can accommodate training, we will offer a further two day face to face training module when we can, to build on the initial skills learned in the Winter School, as part of the 4 day assessment module which, again, will be available when it becomes practical to hold this.  



The fee for the online Winter School (including the Orientation Workshop) is £1975 plus VAT if paid by 31 October; £2275 plus VAT thereafter.

For the optional four-day assessment module, assuming this is face to face, the fee is £2375 plus VAT.

The Winter School will proceed if we have a sufficient number of participants to make the learning experience a really rich one. 

Please do let us know by Friday 23 October if you would like to take part. We hope you will!
