There are no minimum requirements/ qualifications needed in order to practice Mediation within the UK. However, we strongly advise that practising mediators undergo formal training, in order for the process to be beneficial to those involved.
At CMP while we offer a range of training courses on mediation skills, we would always advocate that to build the skills required for mediating challenging disputes at work, you should complete our 6-day Professional Workplace Mediator training course.
Any of the professional bodies for mediation (the CMC or College of Mediators) requires this as a minimum amount of training as part of their membership application process.
In order to work as a Mediator for CMP, we require a minimum of at least 5 years’ experience in conducting workplace Mediations.
