Attending Mediation

One Day Workshop

Be prepared for mediation

BEFORE  you have to attend!

Workshop Overview

How can you prepare for Mediation without actually attending?

By coming to our one day workshop on ‘Attending Mediation’ of course!

In this workshop you’ll cover off the legislation around personal grievances and settlements, and then work through a real case and then attend a mediation simulation with a mediator - to see how it really works and how well you might do to get the right outcomes.

You’ll get experience:

During the workshop you’ll be provided with a comprehensive workbook which includes information about the legislation and processes, as well as case studies and room for you to prepare for your mediation.

You’ll be provided with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.


Participants have said that this workshop has given them confidence to deal with mediation effectively - including how to prepare, how to deal with unreasonable or aggressive employment advocates and how to get an appropriate outcome.
