Trainee Member Benefits

The journey from Trainee to Associate level, Certified level and then to Practitioner level is both challenging and rewarding. The MII encourages Trainee Members to actively engage with other trainees and also accredited, practising Mediators to develop your skills and practice. Whether developing specific skills and knowledge, engaging in reflective practice or learning how mediation works in a particular environment, there are many opportunities for trainee Mediators, to engage and learn in informative and participative forums.

  • Membership under the Trainee Scheme for the year of the start date of their approved training programme and the following calendar year.
  • Reduced member fees for symposium, conferences and some CPD trainings
  • Join a Sharing and Learning group
  • Attend sector meetings, AGM and any EGMs
  • Sit on appropriate committees

Please note:

  1. Trainee Members are not approved to practice.
