Train as a dispute resolver
Unresolved or poorly managed conflict can be a massive drain on individual and organisational resources. Learn how to deal with conflict more effectively, and you can save people a lot of time, money, stress and distraction.
We offer a range of market-leading courses in mediation and conflict resolution: from half a day to six days, covering workplace disputes, neighbourhood & family conflict, bullying and harassment, and commercial disputes.
You can come to us to train at top quality venues all around the UK (and beyond!), or we can bring our training to you. Our most popular public courses are the Mediation Practitioner’s Certificates. You can also find out here about our range of in-house training for your organisation, including our shorter courses.
All sorts of people train with us, and many learners describe the experience as one of the most valuable training they have ever been on. We look forward to having you join us on your way to becoming a dispute resolver.

Why train with UK Mediation?
We’re really pleased when people ask us this question, because we know that we’re different. We’ve been around for a while, and have seen many, many people and organisations come into the field as mediators and trainers. We like to stay ahead of the crowd, though, and can proudly give you four big reasons why we are, and remain, the training provider of choice:
What makes us different?
Based on the many years’ work of our founder and CEO, Dr. Mike Talbot, we have an in-depth knowledge of what happens at a psychological level within interpersonal relationships. This underpins our unique mediation model and all of our training courses
We like being kept on our toes, and enjoy opening up all of our courses, services, and systems to external scrutiny and quality assurance. We are proud holders of both the ISO 9001 quality badge, and the Investors in People award.
We are specialists. Conflict resolution is all we do, and we do it rather well. We’re not lawyers, management consultants, arbitrators, or anything else.
We understand people. We understand conflict. We know that experience counts, and we’ve got lots of it.
