We distinguish ourselves from the competition by focusing on not just providing an accredited qualification, but also equipping trainees with the commercial understanding that is crucial in properly utilising this qualification. Trainee feedback from other mediation courses indicates that post-course, participants are often left in the dark and let down about pathways into the profession, regulatory requirements and overall career development. This leads to a completely unfulfilling and ultimately futile experience. We overcome these shortcomings by incorporating a Career Building Module within our course as well as providing post-training facilitation.
