Why train with National Family Mediation (NFM)?

When it comes to family mediation training, we are the specialists.

We swiftly moved our training online during the Covid-19 pandemic. In fact our training has been evolving ever since we began to develop family mediation in the early 1980s, taking account of new learning opportunities and styles.

We devised and developed the code of practice and specialist training needed to become a family mediator, which has since been adopted and used by other mediation providers.

Our training will give you a comprehensive and inclusive set of skills and knowledge to work in this field. With expert trainers and small group size, it is unrivalled and unmatched by any other training currently on the market today.

A cornerstone of our success is our commitment to professional standards and the delivery of professional services. So our priority is the training of highly skilled practitioners who deliver a high-quality service for families affected by relationship breakdown.

“Many thanks for the course you delivered – the best virtual course I have participated in this year by a wide margin, thanks to the quality of your presentation and the small group size.”

“A really enjoyable and informative course and very well presented throughout. Looking forward to taking all knowledge and getting to next stage.”

“Really felt the structure and pace were great, time to absorb info but not so long that it became boring.”
