Led brilliantly by Gregg, each tutor brought their own knowledge and experience to the programme and by the end of the week, we had a detailed understanding of the mediation process and the role that ADR increasingly plays within our legal system. The training programme is a very good starting point for anyone considering mediation, but many of the skills taught during the course can also be applied to many other aspects of life.

WOW, what a great course. So well delivered, excellent course material, learned so much about the benefits of Mediation. Would recommend it to anybody who has an interest in Mediation or would like to qualify as a Mediator.

I can highly recommend the course and if I could rate it 7 stars I would but I am limited to 5!

Intense week of study but thoroughly enjoyable. Tutors Gregg, Kelly and John are so approachable and put you at ease... Highly recommended for anyone looking to pursue a career in mediation.

It was excellent and very practical. The tutors were top notch, the materials give you everything you need and the various mock role plays gave an excellent insight into the role of a mediator. The course was intense but fun at the same time. It was a very rewarding experience and I would have no hesitation in recommending Hunt ADR to anyone for ADR training.

Gregg is an excellent coach quickly put me at ease. There were additional trainers on hand to help out. My cohort were excellent learning partners. I really enjoyed the course and felt that I had learned new mediation skills and brushed up on my communication skills.


We look at mediation and where it sits in the dispute resolution landscape before looking at the first two phases in the mediation process - preparation and  opening.

Some pre-recorded video is sent in advance to familiarise participants with a full review of content in live sessions between participants and tutors.


Live training and coaching in the arts of communication and other relevant personal skills required to be an effective mediator. Includes online exercises and role plays.


We put everything we learned on Day Two in to practice once we have covered the remaining stages of the mediation process - exploration, negotiation (including managing offers) and closing the mediation.

Heavy in role plays with Faculty feedback and coaching, as well as peer feedback, by the end of Day Three participants start to feel like mediators!


Live sessions dealing with the whole mediation process and other important aspects such as mediation case law and ethics.  Day Four is heavy in role plays making sure that participants are ready for their recorded assessments the following day. 


Assessment day, which will be time tabled in advance. A follow up action plan will also be discussed with participants on Day Five.
