Event description

Description

Highly practical and intensive, the RICS Mediation Training Programme will prepare you to mediate the most complex disputes to the highest standards across land, property, construction and infrastructure.

This face-to-face course embraces the facilitative and evaluative approaches to mediation. Our expert trainers will provide you with in-depth, practical coaching and you will receive feedback from both your trainer and your peers.

Who should attend?

Our delegates come from a variety of backgrounds and include professionals in land, construction, real estate, local authorities as well as legal practitioners and members of government departments. This course is also suitable for those who are representing parties in mediation.

The RICS Mediation Training Programme adopts the ACRE approach.

Mediation for the land, property, construction, and built environment. RICS has built upon its traditional, facilitative mediation service to develop a new, robust and evaluative training programme – ACRE Mediation.

  • Analytical – Helping parties to analyse the circumstances, law, evidence, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of their case to empower them to make pragmatic and viable settlement decisions.

  • Commercial – The training encompasses wide commercial as well as narrow legal realities to result in a flexible settlement, which courts or arbitration cannot.

  • Restorative – Focusing on restoring the business relationship between parties, proceedings are completely confidential to limit any further damage.

  • Expert – Mediators use their expertise to help parties to reach a commonsense settlement, or to narrow the issues in dispute, reducing court or arbitration costs.

Module 1

Introduction to Mediation and Mediation Advocacy

Suitable as a stand-alone course this introductory module provides the essential baseline skills to enable you to develop and expand on your proficiency as a party representative. This module will provide you with a detailed introduction to facilitative and evaluative mediation. It is intensely hands-on with coaching and feedback provided throughout role play exercises.

This will enable you to:

  • Appreciate and anticipate the complexities, pitfalls and opportunities of acting as both facilitative and an evaluative mediator

  • Develop the skills to mediate successfully in a variety of commercial situations

  • Build a high level of expert knowledge and experience

  • Act effectively as a mediation advocate.

Module 2

Practical Evaluative Mediation Skills

This module will develop your technique as a facilitative and evaluative mediator, building on the knowledge of both disciplines you have gained in module 1. You will be guided through a variety of practical situations and will also learn how to deal with challenges that are specific to the evaluative mediation process. These will include how to use your sector skills and experience, as well as your understanding of the matter to:

  • Help the parties consider the merits of the various options for settlement that emerge during the negotiation

  • Help the parties understand the risks associated with taking the matter to court or arbitration through a process of robust reality testing

  • Explore the prospects of success in court or arbitration based on what has been revealed during the mediation process

  • Help the parties to achieve an outcome based on wider commercial as well as narrow legal grounds.

This module is available once you have successfully completed module 1.

What will I receive at the end?

Successful completion of modules 1 and 2 entitles you to apply for admission to the RICS International Panel of Dispute Resolvers. This would allow you to be considered for appointment by RICS to act as a mediator.
