3 days (Nottingham)

Whilst some issues in the workplace can escalate to levels where they need external mediation, so many grievances and other disputes can be nipped in the bud early by focusing on resolving situations through proper conversations with the help of trained internal mediators.

By attending our three day programme, you can help your employees and the organisation by saving the wasted time and cost but (even more importantly) the significant stress caused by formal grievances and disputes. Having the skills and confidence to help employees with their issues and facilitate informal resolutions is a great asset to any business - whether you're a HR professional or not. 

See here why we at Pragmatism see formal grievances as a failure.

Mediation is a fantastic skillset to possess. By attending the training, you will join like-minded people to learn not only the theories behind mediation but also the real practicalities and experiences that make mediation so successful. You'll return to your role with a real desire to drive early resolution of people issues. 

The course is highly interactive. We don't believe in death by powerpoint - just like mediation itself, the most important aspect is talking and understanding each other. There will be lots of practicing, a safe environment to learn from each other and we hope you'll also find it fun!

Please have a look at the details of our training course below and feel free to email us or call us if you have any queries at all - we'll happily answer them.


We deliver our training at our lovely venue in Nottingham. However, if you prefer to use your own venue or run a specific in-house course we can also do this - click here for more details.

Our training is held in the beautiful venue of Eastwood Hall, just a short drive from Nottingham. It's a popular wedding venue, so where better to talk about engagement! Set in over 26 acres of lovely grounds it's also perfect for taking a stroll before, after or even during the training. It's a venue that our Director Pete often attended during his ten years at Rolls-Royce - if it's good enough for them it's good enough for us!

We'll enjoy lovely lunches, and unlimited refreshments throughout each day. For those who are travelling from other parts of the country (or just want some well-deserved time away from the kids) you can also stay over for very reasonable rates bed and breakfast, also making use of other great facilities such as the swimming pool and gym - and don't worry there's no chance of bumping into us during your pre-training workout, unless of course breakfast can be classed as a workout?

No! We deliver many of our actual mediations virtually, and they work really well (click the button below to see a video). However, we firmly believe that actual training in mediation can only be fully effective in person. This is why we're not offering the training online - it compromises quality. We value highly the relationships and networks that form when spending several days together training as mediators. The only online training we provide is therefore a three hour session around avoiding formal grievances - see "avoiding formal grievances training" below.


If you'd like to know more about the services we offer, or you have a question, please don't hesitate to call or email us. Alternatively, complete the enquiry form opposite and we'll respond quickly.
