Drop in to find out more about free mediation skills training

If you are unemployed or not working and living in the Wealden or Eastbourne area, local community mediation charity Mediation Plus are offering free mediation skills training for up to 20 people to become Neighbourhood Mediators in their communities.

Supported by funding from the European Social Fund through the Skills Funding Agency, the course offers participants the opportunity to develop mediation skills through exercises, group work and role play. Mediation skills are applicable to many professional sectors, including housing, young people’s services, family support, education and many more.

The course is aimed at those looking to return to education and training, get into community volunteering, or learn new skills that may help them back into employment. Completing the course and accreditation process will give participants a recognised qualification at Level 2 or 3 that they will be able to build on with further training in the future.

Mediation Plus are holding a drop in session to find out more about the course at their offices in Western Road, Hailsham on Thursday 16th May between 10 and 11am. If you would like to attend, or get more details and an application form, please call Joan Eades on 01323 442781 or email
