Mediation Institute is looking for accredited FDR Practitioners who are interested in taking on a mentee to approach them for more information.

Under the new Graduate Diploma of Family Dispute Resolution (CHC81115) there will be a requirement for a 50 hour work placement.

The Mediation Institute team pride ourselves on the level of support we provide our students and would never consider offering a course that required a mandatory work placement to qualify without strategies in place to ensure that every single student has the opportunity to fulfil the requirements of the qualification.

How you can help

We are looking for FDR services and Independent FDR practitioners who are interested in taking on a trainee.  The work placement will be the final part of the course after students have been assessed as competent in role plays so we do not expect that we will require any placements until early 2017.

We train right around Australia so are looking for mentors in all states and territories. Student and Graduate Locations Map

What’s in it for me?

Clearly there has to be an exchange of value beyond the warm feeling and the benefits you’ll derive from the mentoring relationship in your own professional development.

Mediation Institute has developed a comprehensive support program for FDR services and independent practitioners who are interested in taking on a student which includes support for mentors, a comprehensive guide and agreement clarifying expectations. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t supervised before – we’ll help you to establish the relationship and support you as you support our student.

We will also be providing modest financial compensation to recognize your contribution to developing the future generation of practitioners.

You can call the Director of Studies on 1300 781 533 or Contact Us to express your interest.
