CoEJ Mediation Skills Training – 2020

In line with our vision Unlocking the Potential of our People to Serve the Community and Humanity, The Council of European Jamaats is currently looking into increasing the capacity of accredited mediators within CoEJ. The training and supervision process is currently been undertaken by LADR (Lesley Allport Dispute Resolution) which is an approved training provider of the College of Mediators.

The Six day program enables you to complete the first step of the foundation course.

To train ten participants to undertake foundation training to become a trained mediator

By the end of the module participants will understand:

  • Their own and others’ responses to conflict
  • The difference between constructive and destructive conflict.
  • How to support a constructive dialogue  and the skills to facilitate effective exchange
  • The seven stages of the mediation process
  • How to assist parties to sort their issues into a workable agenda.
  • The importance of listening and empathic working
  • How to engage parties in the mediation process effectively


Process and time frame of accreditation:

  1. All Mediators will have gone through a bespoke Programme of 6 days (40 hours) Foundation training to conduct marital mediation and mediation in general. Practical and written assessment is part of this training.
  2. Trainee mediators can then join the College of Mediators on collegeofmediators.co.uk
  •  Trainee mediators will deposit a refundable retainer of £100 as a sign of commitment on working towards their accreditation. Trained members will then begin working towards their  portfolio by co-mediating three to four cases. CoEJ will arrange supervision (PPC) Through LADR.
  •  This will be a maximum of 2 hours a year after each case of mediation undertaken.
  •  Group supervision: 2 X 1-day meeting per year.

3. Mediators have twelve to eighteen months to mediate three to four cases and write up these cases in a portfolio

  •  This will enable trained mediators to become accredited members of the College of Mediators.

4. Once accredited, mediators will become part of the CoEJ Mediation Service and will be requested to undertake at least 2 mediation cases a year either pro-bono or at a nominal fee (plus costs).

Anyone who does not get accredited in three years will not be part of the CoEJ Mediators Scheme.
