Over the course of 2017 and 2018, in partnership with Kennedy Institute, Maynooth University, and Laois/Offaly Education and Training Board, the Traveller Mediation Service coordinated the delivery of an accredited Traveller Conflict and Mediation Training Programme.
The programme delivered a culturally inclusive training programme on mediation and conflict to participant students all of whom were Travellers.
The course began in September 2017, and ran for nine months.
It consisted of a Part 1 (an accredited QQI Level 5 course in Conflict resolution & Intercultural Studies) and a Part 2 (Mediators Institute of Ireland accredited Mediation Training Programme).
Seven students completed the 2 modules of the Part 1 course successfully, and five students completed both the Part 1 and part 2 course.
