Become a Professional Mediator

Mediation is an often challenging, but ultimately rewarding career. Disputes vary widely, and all have their own unique challenges and circumstances. No two mediation cases are ever really the same and Mediators have to be quick thinking, creative, resourceful and ready for the sudden changes and surprises that any mediation session can bring.

The LBA Excellence Programme

LBA Excellence is a comprehensive programme of Mediation training, information, supervision and services to support new professional Mediators who aspire to be the best. Fully recognised by the College of Mediators, the Family Mediation Council and the Family Mediation Standards Board, LBA Excellence training and support packages are suitable for those wanting to develop a career as a professional mediator, the professional development of those who are already established mediators and also for other professionals seeking high quality training in mediation skills to augment their current professional roles.

We work with a wide range of Mediation Professionals to provide training that has a strong focus on practice. Courses are a combination of theoretical input, group discussion and opportunities to practice new ideas and build new skills, and are designed to draw on the existing skills and knowledge of course participants.
