This course is Accredited by the College of Mediators
Scottish Mediation registered mediators are required to seek regular support and supervision each year. For some this is provided by their mediation service but for other mediators, such as sole practitioners and ‘in – house’ organisations/workplace mediators, they will not have supervision/practice consultancy automatically offered to them. This course will offer participants the opportunity to develop these skills to take on these important supervisory/consultancy roles.
