The UK Register of Mediators
It is important that people who are qualifying as mediators, even if they go on to apply their skills without describing themselves as ‘Mediators’, have credibility within the organisation, and are able to demonstrate the quality and professionalism of their mediation work. For this purpose, GOSH mediators will be registered onto the UK Register of Mediators for no charge. Membership of the register shows that mediators are:
• Trained by mediation professionals to a nationally accredited standard
• Properly insured for their work
• Undertaking case supervision
• Engaging in CPD
Membership of the UK Register of Mediators gives a quality mark to the training, support, and practice standards of people using mediation skills.
