Why Our Customers Chose Us

Andrew West

"This has been the single best training course I have ever attended in 23 years’ practice as a solicitor.  Our trainer, Steve, was outstanding with the course delivery, and administration and organisation of the course was seamless, with the emphasis on personal contact.  I’d recommend Align for anyone considering training to become a mediator."

Laura Bailhache

“Informative, engaging and stimulating. There is a good balance of tuition and practical exercises and the course delivers the tools needed to conduct real life mediations with confidence.

Steve did an excellent job of delivering the course in a fun, relaxed and user-friendly way. Harry answered all our more practical questions about how to get into practice. The course is competitively priced, well-managed and in a good location with excellent facilities laid on.

The course introduces you to a wide range of interesting new people, all of whom you will know much better by the end! I am very glad I took this course as I have gained so much both personally and professionally by doing so and I would highly recommend Align to anyone looking to get into mediation.”

"The Align Mediation Course was one of the most enjoyable, useful and rewarding courses I have undertaken. It was a perfect blend of instruction, and practical sessions with a safe and supportive space for practice, feedback, reflection and learning.

I found Steve’s unique style of instruction, peppered with anecdotes of his own experiences of mediation, quite mesmerising. The medium of Zoom was ultra-convenient and definitely did not diminish the learning experience. I felt we bonded as a group of participants as strongly as if we were in a face to face learning environment.

Interestingly, in terms of learning outcomes, I feel the course absolutely achieves its purpose of preparing students to be effective mediators, but also more fundamentally, to be more enquiring and open as individuals, and better equipped with life skills. I would recommend this course wholeheartedly to anyone seeking an accredited mediation qualification – it offers the very best in terms of enjoyment, learning and value for money."

"I have completed Align’s one week Civil/Commercial Mediation course in Oxford. I can highly recommend it. The trainer was fantastic and the size of the group (nine) was just the right number. The days had a perfect mix of lectures combined with role plays and breaks. The content of the course was very interesting and not only will it benefit me in my career as a mediator but also on a personal level too. I would strongly recommend anyone looking to do a course in Mediation to choose Align."

“Align Mediation offers a superb course in Mediation that is second to none. We attended the course for Civil and Commercial Mediation this Spring and were delighted with the course structure, content and with our trainer.  We had no concept of the many skills that were necessary to offer mediation and we are now (thanks to the informative course we attended), well on the path to becoming good mediators ourselves thanks to Align.”
