“The 5 day course I attended in May 2014 worked really well. The small, tight knit group made the course very enjoyable and our trainer was fantastic, she had huge knowledge and was able to give us anecdotes of real life examples. The course was great value for money and we came away with a fully accredited qualification. I’m now getting good support from Align in finding real work and I’m looking forward to becoming a successful mediator in my own right. It’s very exciting.”
Julie Mitchell (Retired Solicitor) Gloucestershire
“I found the Align mediation course very professional. The trainer was great, he made learning about the mediation process very interesting, interactive and enjoyable.

Daniel Bianco (Charity Fundraiser) Hove
“I chose Align Mediation to do the accredited Civil & Commercial Mediator Qualification as it offered great value for money at a convenient location.

Marcus Keppel-Palmer (University Law Lecturer) Bristol
“An excellent course with brilliant trainers! I thoroughly enjoyed the methodological approach employed and would highly recommend it.

Radhika Khanna (Law Graduate) Sheffield

There was a healthy mix of lectures and interactive sessions which made every day extremely enjoyable.

Dominik Morton (Law Student) Bristol
“Align’s Civil/Commercial mediation training course was very well structured and helped build & develop my skills. The course provided a fantastic space in which to learn and the tutor was enthusiastic, making me want to engage with the course even more. As a result of this course I am now a fully accredited civil/commercial mediator and this has provided me with many opportunities. I am now on the panel of mediators at Align Mediation, I have been able to join a variety of mediation panels for whom I can mediate for, and I have even been able to set up my own mediation company. All off this would not have been possible without Align Mediation. I would recommend this course to everyone as the skills I have learnt here are invaluable.”
Alexander Gummery (Law Student) Bristol
“I cannot recommend the Align Mediation training course highly enough. The content of the course was extremely informative and the trainer was outstanding.

“When I first enrolled onto the distance learning course, I was a bit apprehensive about what the experience would be like. I can honestly say my reservations were unfounded. The course content was clear, concise and easily digestible at your own pace. The assessment process was geared to self-learning and the support from all at Align Mediation was first class. I have no hesitation in recommending the course to anybody.”
Malcolm Crapper (Consultant) South Yorkshire
“I participated in the Distance Learning Civil / Commercial Mediation Training Programme. The distance learning option fitted in well with my other businesses and allowed me to progress through the work at a speed commensurate with my existing levels of experience. The Skype sessions were fun and fully interactive and I benefited from the individual feedback I received. The notes provided by Align Mediation included some ‘Top Tips’ to support those who are new to business generation and the course equates to 40 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).”
Chris Jones (Business Owner) London
“I completed the distance learning course in December 2015. I found the manuals very informative and helpful and the Skype sessions with my tutor were interesting and taught me a lot about handling a mediation situation. My final exam was facing two experienced mediators which I enjoyed very much and was pleased to learn I had passed the course as a result.”
Dorothy Pulsford-Harris (Solicitor) Norfolk
“I would highly recommend Align Mediation. The distance learning option provided a flexible approach to the training and the support provided from Harry as a mentor was second to none!”
Andrew Robinson (Chief Executive Officer) Oldham
“Informative, engaging and stimulating. There is a good balance of tuition and practical exercises and the course delivers the tools needed to conduct real life mediations with confidence.
Steve did an excellent job of delivering the course in a fun, relaxed and user-friendly way. Harry answered all our more practical questions about how to get into practice. The course is competitively priced, well-managed and in a good location with excellent facilities laid on.
The course introduces you to a wide range of interesting new people, all of whom you will know much better by the end! I am very glad I took this course as I have gained so much both personally and professionally by doing so and I would highly recommend Align to anyone looking to get into mediation.”
Laura Bailhache (Solicitor) Taunton
This challenging course in mediation was over 5 days and I learnt that no matter what the professional background of the person attending the course was, they had to start with an open mind to learn new skills. Very well taught with a very accessible tutor. Thank you.
Robina Moore (Safety and Security Advisor) Bath

I have to say that your input throughout this process on the distance learning course has been brilliant. Great service, great feedback and always on hand to fit in the sessions at convenient times. I really do appreciate all of your assistance.
Stephen Pritchett (Barrister) Warrington
I chose Align Mediation to train as a Civil/Commercial mediator. The 5 days looked well structured, the course was competitively priced and was at a convenient location. The course, trainer and course provider were amazing. The training experienced was detailed, intense and sufficiently challenging on each day. The days progressed towards the final assessment on the 5th day and the structure and pace was quite demanding. The course was broad enough in the content and examples used appealed to a wide range of professionals. I have no hesitation in recommending this course as valuable and very worthwhile in all respects.
Gill Thomas (Headteacher) Essex
The Align Civil/Commercial course in Oxford had the very desirable combination of good organisation in agreeable surroundings, highly interesting, challenging and relevant content and all given by a very knowledgeable and likeable instructor. The quality and enjoyment were greatly enhanced by the small, friendly and tightly knit class all doing their best to extract full measure and value from the process. Finally I found the subject surprisingly challenging and satisfying while providing much food for thought; a very good basis for entering the profession.
Bill Pulford (Computer Scientist) Oxford
I found the mediation course challenging and highly focused. The in-depth analysis and feedback of the practical exercises was exceptional. Thank you for the inspiring and confidence boosting start to this exciting new opportunity.
Nigel Chapman (Crown Prosecutor) Leicester
I have completed Align’s one week Civil/Commercial Mediation course in Oxford. I can highly recommend it. The trainer was fantastic and the size of the group (nine) was just the right number. The days had a perfect mix of lectures combined with role plays and breaks. The content of the course was very interesting and not only will it benefit me in my career as a mediator but also on a personal level too. I would strongly recommend anyone looking to do a course in Mediation to choose Align.
Faye Davis-Carrau (MET Police Officer) Bedfordshire
I would highly recommend the 5 day Align Mediation training course. The teaching and content is excellent with a lot of practical exercises during the week to boost practical skills in addition to a vast amount of useful information about the mediation sector as a whole

Align Mediation’s course which I attended in August 2016 was an excellent experience. It was highly informative and a real career changer for many in the group. We had great participants on the course and the tutor was highly professional and well experienced in his field which was a huge bonus to our confidence in electing to choose a career in mediation. I wish Align Mediation all the best in continuing to provide an excellent mediation course.
