Our training is provided at a discounted rate for individuals and charities.
We have a strong commitment to training people in the discipline of mediation which we see as a practice which has to be continually developed and improved.
Our training course in the CAOS Model of Mediation embeds a reflective practice ethos into the course and the training is provided via an experiential, interactive approach rather than a presentation, lecture and theoretical approach.
"I originally trained to become a Mediator and Conflict Coach for my role in Social Housing. I didn't realise how powerful the training would be and how it would impact on every area of my life. I have trained with Caos Conflict Management and what is taught is invaluable in supporting me to take the steps to become a Health & Lifestyle Coach. Alan delivers fantastic training that can be applied to every profession and area of life. It has helped me in my personal life and with my clients, staff and peers. To date this is the best training I have completed." - Emma Bartholomew

"In my 20 years experience as an academic this is the best ‘in-service’ training I have experienced. The quality of the training team’s preparation and the skill with which they conducted the course was impressive."
Dr Meretta Elliott -Senior Lecturer-School of Arts-Brunel University - speaking about a 6-day Mediator training course run by Alan Sharland and colleagues.
"This was not an easy course; the challenges involved in working outside one’s usual mode of operation were considerable, but the upbeat attitude of the trainers and the calm and supportive atmosphere they created meant that I was free to work outside my comfort zone in developing an approach to assisting others deal with their own situations."
Dr Mary Richards - Subject Leader for Drama - Brunel University - also speaking about the Mediator training course.
"This was a very successful workshop, feedback described the day as “fun”, “interesting” and “informative” with a “superb” trainer who had a “very thoughtful approach”. 100% of our attendees said they had enjoyed the course and they would recommend it to colleagues."
Tania Murrell - Business Development Manager, Hillingdon Association of Voluntary Services - speaking about the workshop 'Dealing with Difficult Behaviour' run by Alan Sharland.
Train to be a Mediator with CAOS Conflict Management
"Alan provided excellent training for mediators at Common Ground Mediation which was challenging but also thoroughly enjoyable.
He led us through various interactive exercises to help us reflect on the mediator's role and impartiality. I would highly recommend Alan as a trainer for mediators."
