Joint statement from Acas and NOCN on the Certificate in Internal Workplace Mediation

Friday 04 April 2014

Acas is pleased to announce that NOCN will formally become our new accrediting body from the 1 April 2014 for the Certificate in Internal Workplace Mediation (CIWM) course.

The CIWM is a five-day accredited course that equips staff with the skills and knowledge to mediate and oversee mediation processes. NOCN has been creating a range of opportunities for students and learners for over 25 years so it is a trusted and recognised provider by learners, educational organisations and employers.

Brian Thornton, Head of Advisory Services Policy at Acas, said:

"We are delighted to have NOCN on board with us for our CIWM course, which is a highly valued service amongst our customers.

"Successful mediation in the workplace is crucial and so it is really important that the accredited recognition for our course will continue to come from a leading awarding organisation."

Graham Hasting-Evans, Managing Director at NOCN, said:

"NOCN is committed to fairness and equality in the workplace and is therefore delighted to be working with Acas in such an important area as internal workplace mediation".
