By utilising cutting-edge software currently used by higher education institutes, we deliver the highest quality user experience in a virtual setting and make no compromises on our standard.
Productive working from home
As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to impact our lives and cancel appointments in our diaries, professionals working from home have the opportunity to use lost time productively by gaining an invaluable professional qualification.

I was impressed by the quality of the course content, the instructor, the administrative support and particularly the way in which the training has been adapted for online learning.
This course has enabled me to develop from not really understanding what mediation comprises of, to being confident in my mediation role and how to conduct a mediation. This accredited training course is of high quality, with an experienced trainer and excellent support team. Highly recommend.
Phoenix were incredibly helpful and easy to work with – nothing was too much trouble for them. I found the 5 weekly sessions easier to accommodate within my practice than taking a whole week out. The course materials were of a high-quality, and the trainer was very knowledgeable, patient and clear in her presentation. I would recommend them to anyone thinking of training as a mediator.
Phoenix ran a professional mediation course which was tailored to my and those of the other Counsels in my set. The trainer was extremely professional and well organised and the course ran extremely smoothly
“This Course is an outstanding Mediation Training resource. The level of teaching input and back up in terms of the learning materials is first class. I would not hesitate to recommend the PDSL / Phoenix Mediation Course to other Barristers.”

It was a very interesting and challenging 5 days and it has opened my eyes to the world of mediation and I am looking forward to promoting my mediation practice. The administrative support provided during the course was faultless'
“I am most impressed by the quality of the course content, the trainer, the administrative support and the ease and promptness at which the company was able to adapt this training to a virtual one. Very well done to them as I am totally convinced and comfortable with virtual learning from henceforth. It has been a very good experience and the scepticism I initially exhibited regarding online training has completely been dissipated.”
'I was very impressed by the Phoenix Dispute Solutions’ course delivery. The level of attention given to ensuring customer satisfaction was excellent. The course delivery and materials were efficient, relevant and user-friendly. I would certainly recommend Phoenix'
