Providing a restorative toolkit to the people of Portsmouth

Portsmouth Mediation Service is continually growing as a centre of excellence in training and development.  As part of our Restorative vision for Portsmouth we have produced a suite of Mediation and Restorative training that can be adapted to many different environments.  The content ranges across many different levels and provides local people with the opportunity to gain new skills that can be quickly and easily invested in their local community.

Here is a sample of some of the training we provide;

Community Mediation Training

This in depth course is run over 6 days and is accredited by OCN.  It covers all the key foundational mediation skills and knowledge and with follow up coaching and mentoring, delegates can soon turn role play into real life.

Following the new challenges presented by the Covid 19 Pandemic, The PMS Training Team has successfully transferred the 6 day community mediation training course online. During the last half of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021, we have delivered 6 courses via Zoom. Each one has been enthusiastically received. Here is what some delegates have said:

“I would highly recommend to attend this training – it’s second to none!”

“I have to confess that I was initially a little apprehensive about six whole days of Zoom training, including three days of role play; but your team were excellent in putting us at our ease and delivering an engaging, first class training programme – one of the best courses that I have attended in my many years of professional life and (now) retirement.”

“I found the course really excellent. I wasn’t looking forward to 6 days on zoom, but it worked really well. Tutors were inspirational and I learnt skills I wish I had had years ago!”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course, and everything exceeded my expectations. The trainers did a really great job of putting us at ease, giving us a comprehensive range of strategies and giving us specific, valuable feedback.”

The cost for this training is £795.00 with a special rate for Portsmouth people and organisations of £395.00

Restorative Justice Facilitators Training

We deliver this cutting edge 4 day course every quarter in association with Rane Training.  Our chief motivation in running this course is that it always produces Restorative Champions and Ambassadors who become envisioned to put these new skills into practice within their workplaces and communities.
