Short Courses and Executive Development

If you are interested in enhancing your skills on a certain subject, or simply want to learn about a new topic then one of our range of short courses could be the perfect answer. Short courses are an excellent alternative for busy professionals who cannot commit to full or part-time study, and in many cases can count towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

We run a range of courses across a variety of business and law disciplines, enabling you to gain the knowledge you need over a short period of time. Most courses run over a 1-3 day period.

If you have a group of employees who need training in a certain business discipline, or perhaps even want to undertake a short course for CPD purposes then we can help. Courses can be constructed according to your needs and run from half a day to several weeks.  We always try to ensure an element of practical exercises that can be implemented directly into the workplace.

Mediation training workshop

Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution which can eliminate the need to go to court. It aims to assist two parties who are in disagreement to reach a mutually acceptable solution. The process is more time efficient and cost effective than other forms of dispute resolution such as litigation or arbitration and it provides parties with a safe non-threatening environment in which the issues concerned can be openly discussed.

This course provides basic techniques needed to mediate disputes. The training focuses on the skills used by mediators when helping parties in a dispute. These skills include:

•    handling emotionally charged situations;
•    problem solving, active listening; and
•    effective questioning.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
