Using Mediation Skills as Leaders and Professionals

Online Winter School 


Monday 22 – Thursday 25 (morning only) February 2021


(with a three-hour Orientation Workshop a week or two in advance (timed to suit the convenience of participants)).

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.

“I really enjoyed the course and got a lot out of it.  It worked really well on Zoom.  Felt we had created a real bond which I was surprised about being able to do virtually.”

“I thought the course last week was excellent and feel I’ve now got a much greater understanding of how mediation can be deployed to resolve complex disputes.”

The Course

Modelled on our highly regarded residential Summer School, we will space the 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 a 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.

“I thought that the course website was extremely professional and comprehensive.  It was really user-friendly.  The communication before and during the course was first rate.” – Summer School 2020 participant.

Full attendance during the three and a half days is essential – 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, there is the option to proceed to our 4 day assessment module which will be available when it becomes practical to hold this on a face to face basis.

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

We are aware that Zoom (or it’s equivalents) will increasingly be used as a platform for negotiation and mediations and this training will be essential for many of us.


For the online Winter School (including the Orientation Workshop):  £1975 plus VAT if paid by 21 December; £2275 plus VAT thereafter.

For the optional face to face four-day assessment module:   £2475 plus VAT.
