To celebrate the launch of 41A on Mediation, South Africa's newest mediation provider, we are pleased to offer International Mediator Skills Training

"A wide ranging and detailed perspective on all aspects of mediation including ethics and data protection. I have been mediating disputes with clients as their advisor since 2001 and I have learned a lot from this course"
Paul Jonson, Senior Partner, Pannone Corporate LLP, Manchester, England, United Kingdom 2019

The influence of mediation as the number one tool for dealing with business disputes is growing across Africa. 

Our challenging five day* programme provides participants with the opportunity to learn and apply the skills needed to effectively mediate civil and commercial disputes. Successful completion of the course leads to Hunt ADR Accreditation in the first instance with CMC Accreditation to follow at a later date once lockdown restrictions allow for face to face meetings. Secondary assessments will take place in Johannesburg, South Africa (a small administration charge may be required to cover venue costs)

Course information​

Day One consists of a mix of pre-recorded and live sessions dealing with the theoretical side of mediation and starts to look at the different phases in the mediation process. Some pre-recorded video is sent in advance of day one to familiarise participants - the content of those videos is then covered again in live sessions between participants and tutors. Each participant will be able to submit questions to the tutor electronically via a live video meeting at a time of day arranged between the tutor and the participant. Feedback is requested daily with offers of support outside of class hours if required.

Day Two consists of live training and coaching in the arts of communication and other relevant personal skills required to be an effective mediator. Training is delivered by video technology in your groups and will include online exercises and role plays. Feedback is requested daily with offers of support outside of class hours if required.

Day Three consists of pre-recorded and live sessions dealing with the different phases of mediation - specifically exploration, negotiation (or bargaining) and closing the mediation.  Some pre-recorded video is sent on the evening of day two to familiarise participants - the content of those videos is then covered again in live sessions between participants and tutors. Day three sees many role plays delivered by video technology groups using a secure platform to facilitate online dispute resolution adhering to a consumer code of standards. This platform is provided exclusively for this course by CCODR (Consumer Code for Online Dispute Resolution). Feedback is requested daily with offers of support outside of class hours if required.

Day Four consists of pre-recorded and live sessions dealing with the whole mediation process and other important aspects such as mediation case law and ethics.  Some pre-recorded video is sent on the evening of day three to familiarise participants - the content of those videos is then covered again in live sessions between participants and tutors. Day four is heavy in role plays making sure that participants are ready for their recorded assessments on day five. Again we use the CCODR platform. Feedback is requested daily with offers of support outside of class hours if required.

Day Five consists of your recorded Hunt ADR assessments which will be time tabled and you will receive the timetable during your chosen week. Assessments will be recorded via the CCODR platform. The written assignment questions and follow up action plan will also be discussed with participants on day five.

 

*Day Six (optional for those participants who wish to achieve CMC Accreditation). Once lockdown restrictions allow we will provide participants with a sixth day in which we will fully recap and review learning from the five day programme with additional segments to prepare participants for their face to face assessments. Further details will be provided once provision for face to face assessments are available. No additional fee will be required.
