The Scottish Community Mediation Network (SCMN) believes it is essential that all mediators practising community mediation operate at an appropriate level of competence. The scheme outlined in this section sets out how individual mediators can have their competence recognised.
The SCMN Mediator Accreditation Scheme is open to individual mediators (volunteers and staff) who are attached to a SCMN-affiliated service. Mediators put together a portfolio describing how they meet the scheme’s standards, including writing practice case studies. To learn more about the scheme view the documents on this page.
