CEDR will be accepting training bursary applications from the 1st January 2013.
The purpose of CEDR’s training bursaries is to encourage and enable those prevented from taking part in Mediator Skills Training for financial reasons to receive financial aid.
Applicants need to fulfil a number of criteria in order to be eligible for a bursary, including their potential for promoting EDR theory and techniques, financial need and post-accreditation plans.
Anyone may apply for a CEDR training bursary, however there is a very limited fund and preference is normally given to, those from charities or voluntary organisations and those from the public sector and overseas applicants. Bursary applications are considered on an individual basis in conjunction with current CEDR policy and our charitable object:
"To promote for the benefit of the public in the UK, Europe and throughout the world the use of conciliation mediation adjudication and other methods and procedures for resolving disputes between individuals and/or organisations where this will avoid or reduce the need for and therefore relieve the social and economic cost of litigation and equivalent procedures."
Successful applicants need to clearly demonstrate that they currently are, or will be, in a position to promote mediation as well as benefiting from the skills they will gain during the training. They must also evidence how those working and living around them will benefit from these skills. Bursaries will not be awarded solely for financial reasons.
