The CEDR faculty is made of many different professionals including, lawyers, accountants, business people, HR professionals, architects, teachers and police.
While it is easy for individuals to stand up and present information, for training to be most effective a group of trainers must work together well to ensure efficient management of the course and quality delivery of the learning. The CEDR team work together regularly and therefore know how to work together to ensure high quality delivery of training.
On-going development and quality assurance
As with any professional, mediation trainers need to ensure they are constantly reflecting on their practice and developing their own skills.
