Whilst there are many opportunities for mediators to watch other more experienced mediators’ role play to fulfil professional CPD requirements, opportunities for mediators to actually practice their mediator skills remain scarce. Even scarcer is the opportunity for mediators to receive feedback on their performance as mediators and to be able to use experience and feedback in their efforts to market themselves as a mediator.
The Mediator Experience Day (MED) is the solution. Taking part in MED will allow mediators to demonstrate that they have current mediation experience and will be able to learn via feedback from experienced mediators and use that feedback to learn and develop as well as to market their services.
There are three MED options and in each, those taking part are provided with all relevant mediation paperwork (mediation agreement, case papers, case information, supporting documentation and settlement agreement) and a venue, time and refreshments for their day as mediator:
You are provided with everything you need for the mediation including a date, time and venue for a two hour time limited mediation. You then take control as you would in a real life appointment. There is no assistance when you turn up on the day, you mediate, and you go.
You are provided with everything you need for the mediation including a date, time and venue for a two hour time limited mediation. You then take control as you would in a real life appointment. Your mediation is recorded and within 14 working days you receive a feedback report from an experienced mediator, giving tips on what you did well and where you can improve. You also play the part of a party in two other two hour time limited mediations.
You are provided with everything you need for the mediation including a date, time and venue with a full day scheduled for the mediation. You then take control as you would in a real life appointment. You will be supported by an experienced mediator who will provide you with constant feedback and coaching throughout the day. Sessions will also be recorded with an independent assessment of your performance provided to you within 14 days of completion of the programme. You will be able to keep recordings of your role as mediator and use any edited versions for personal marketing. You also play the part of a party in two other two hour time limited mediations.
