This survey is for Mediation Institute members and students who intend on becoming members to help us with our 2021 planning and 2020 review of the year we have just had.
Training Update: March 2021
Final FGC Workshop for 2020
Message from Joanne,
February was a funny month and not the normal start to the year we’re all used to.
Hopefully with the COVID vaccine starting to roll out and hotel quarantine well and truly under the spotlight we can look forward to things slowly returning to normal. And with it the normal workplace and other disputes that have been somewhat on hold as job security rather than job satisfaction have been front of mind for many.
I’m in Melbourne which has been the hardest and longest hit by COVID lockdowns. Hopefully we’e experienced our last.
As a result of the disruption that many of you have experience we have by far too many students who have been with us too long. We love you but want you out there working as mediators not with us as students unless you want to enrol in another course of course! If you missed it this post is about setting and achieving your learning goals. https://www.mediationinstitute.edu.au/mi-setting-your-2021-learning-goals-guide/
We are back and it is great to see the graduates coming through.
Remember that participating as a role player is VERY valuable as is observing while using the assessment tool to focus your attention.

What our students say
Opportunity would be to refresh the role play scenarios but I believe that is happening. Also to update the videos of the role plays, I found these to be very helpful, maybe make them shorter Also I would have liked training on the pre mediation - and I believe that is also coming soon !!! Thanks again, you are all so dedicated and passionate and that made the whole experience enjoyable
Are you looking for training?
