Mediators who have already carried out a foundation course which meets the stated requirements can train as a SEND mediator by completing an approved SEND course. After completing the course and before joining the SEND register, mediators also need to carry our supported practice. Some training providers offer this alongside their training – please contact the providers for more details. Mediators are advised to read the Professional Standards for SEND Mediators before applying for SEND training.
The following course providers have been approved by the Civil Mediation Council and College of Mediators’ SEND Panel to provide SEND Mediation training courses in accordance with the Professional Standards.
