STEP 1 - Compulsory Element (Dual Accreditation)
Our AMC course is a 5-day intense crash couse, designed for peopl who wish to become Accredited Mediators
and completing our mediation training.
During the course you will learn all of the skills you need to become a practising mediator. You
will have the opportunity to conduct mock mediations, participate in group discussions and be taught
various aspects of the mediation process.
Delegates will also learn advanced mediation techniques such as the art of 'defusing' and 're-visualising'
and will have ample opportunity to put these akills into practise.
Unlike other providers, all of our trainers are 'practising mediators'. This means that delegates
will be able to benefit from real hands on experience.
Our training is nationally and internationally recognised.
Day 1 - An introduction to mediation will be looked at including an exploration of the theory of
facilitating discussion. Delegates will be shown and have the chance to practise various techniques
such as 'de-fusing' and 're-framing'. The first day is also heavily focused on a mediators 'opening
statement' and parties position statements.
Day 2 - Delegates will have the chance to explore the structure of mediation and begin to polish their opening statement.
There will also be particular focus on 'first sessions' including examples of 'inductive questions'
Again, delegates will have the opportunity to practise their opening statement and first sessions in small groups.
Day 3 - Focus will be directed towards second and third sessions including closing joint sessions and
drawing agreements. Problem issues will also be addressed as a class and individually.
Day 4 - A short lecture will be given on post-mediation training practise. Out practising trainers
will provide tips and guidance on advertising, networking and how to get observations and paid
mediation work. Delegates will also have the opportunity to complete a full run through of mediation
in role play groups.
Day 5 - Delegates will conduct a live mediation, which will be assessed on a set of fictitious facts
given on day 4. Successful delegates will be awarded accreditation.
(ASM) - Accredited Specialist Mediator
STEP 2 - for already accredited mediators
After completion of our AMC course, delegates will have the option to undertake our accredited specialist mediator (ASM) Course and receive an additional accreditation.
Our ASM course is a 1-day home study course and tests delegates on likely mediation scenarios they
will experience within their chosen practise and provides some industry standard terms.
We offer ASM courses in the following areas:
- Employment & Workplace
- Family & Divorce
Mediators who undertake our ASM course may attract a larger mediation fee.
After completion of our AMC course delegates must observe at least 3 live mediations before being listed on our panel.
We will assist delegates wherever possible with finding observations at no extra charge.
We offer free inclusion on the 'observation' waiting list.
We are also piloting a Voluntary Free Mediation Service Programme which allows Accredited Mediators to conduct real life mediations.
Once listed on our panel, delegates will have the ability to have paid mediation work referred to them.
Certificate and Accreditation
Upon successful completion of our AMC course delegates will be issued with an Accredited Mediator
Certificate (AMC) and will be able to use the title "Clear ADR Civil and Commercial Accredited Mediator"
Delegates that complete our Accredited Specialised Mediator (ASM) Courses will be issued with a
Accredited Specialist Mediator (ASM) Certificate and will be able to use the title
"Clear ADR Specialist Mediator in [delegates choice]"
As newly qualified mediators you will then be able to set up practise as an independent mediator and/or apply to be listed on our panel of mediators and have the ability to have paid paid mediation work referred to you.
Generally we would expect our mediators to attract a £1-5k per day mediator fee.
