There are many reasons you would want to become a mediator – not least because mediation is an exceptionally practical skill which can be applied in everyday life and business.

The team at Clear ADR recognise that you may not be ready yet to commit to the full 5 day programme, or you may simply wish to ‘try before you buy’ as you decide whether you wish to become am ediator.  In which case, our 1 Day Taster Mediation Training is for you.

You will leave the day with a clear understanding of the benefits of becoming an accredited mediator, what is involved in achieving this and how you will be able to practically apply your mediation skills on both a personal and professional level.

The fee for the 1 Day Taster Course is £250.  If you decide to go ahead and book onto one of our five day mediation training courses, we will refund this fee – meaning you will have a bonus training day!

What some of our clients have to say...

I'm so glad I decided to train with Clear ADR. What an enjoyable and informative week.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The trainer was clearly well experienced and knowledgeable The course was well structured, and we were provided with excellent materials which we worked through. I now feel confident and equipped to conduct my own mediation sessions.

Adam Tash

'A fantastic five day intensive course which was brilliantly executed by Lois. Lois is clearly a highly competent and knowledgeable individual with a lovely persona. The course content was delivered with a good balance of role play, information, discussion and opportunity for personal development.'

Carol Foyle

'The Clear ADR Civil and Commercial Mediation Training programme provided great insight into and practical experience of the mediation process. The theoretical, professional and ethical underpinnings of mediation were expertly covered and the role plays gave great opportunities to put the theory into practice and to hone your mediation skills. The course leader (Lois, if you're not too immodest) has fantastic real world experience and was able to expertly guide us through the role plays, where needed. A fascinatingly diverse cohort added very positively to the overall programme.'

Stephen Mitchell

'I just wanted to say thank you for a great week. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and gained much.

As you know I was sceptical about attending the course over Zoom but it worked brilliantly, in fact it was better than face to face - it was an effective way to attend the course for me. I also don’t feel there was any loss of contact, you could still feel the emotion through the exercises.'

John – April 2020

‘Thank you very much for running the excellent Civil and Commercial Mediator Training programme via Zoom last week. I thoroughly enjoyed the programme and was pleasantly surprised by how well the Zoom videoconference format worked for the programme.
I have used videoconference facilities for business meetings for many years, but I was sceptical about how it would work for a training course. The Zoom platform worked brilliantly, especially the different meeting room facility. I learned a huge amount from your personal experiences of mediation and enjoyed the structured approach to conducting a mediation process. The interaction with the other delegates was really good and we were able to build a good rapport with each other during the programme. I would go as far as to say that the learning experience was enhanced by being able to attend the training from the comfort of my home and not having to battle with the commute to a venue each day. I felt fresh at the start of every day and in a better place to absorb the content and engage in the exercises.
The skills I have developed on the training will be incredibly useful in my business consultancy and executive coaching work, as well as equipping me to facilitate mediations. They will also be a huge asset as I work towards becoming a qualified solicitor.
I look forward to keeping in touch with you and my fellow delegates as I put these skills into practice and develop part of my portfolio of work as a mediator.’
