The College of Mediators recognises Mediation training providers which meet our high standards of excellence. The College’s Mediation training standards have been operating for many years and benefit from regular, ongoing reviews and updates. The College is an independent approval body that does not deliver training itself and has no civil and commercial interest in approving training bodies.


Solution Talk offer a range of training packages to suit individual needs, one of these being our 5 day
foundation course in interpersonal mediation skills.

Mediation is fast becoming an important way to
help people address problems, thus avoiding conflict and litigation; and is promoted by government
as a way to help families, organisations and communities to resolve problems.
