A Different Way of Working - Bringing Dialogue into the Room: Participants develop the capability to bring Dialogue into any grouping of participants, in an organisation or related organisations, to help them to develop a common understanding, and to transfer those skills to others thereby making their role redundant. Novices and experienced trainers and facilitators benefit from the depth of understanding provided, and the rigorous practice requirements. 

Curriculum - the Integrated Dialogue Model: All of the Professional Dialogue educational programmes accredited by the Academy are based on the Integrated Dialogue Model, the design of which has been realised through first-hand research and practice over the past 40 years (recorded in A New Kind of Dialogue by Peter Garrett). 

Assessment: Accreditation is awarded through a three-stage developmental process of self-assessment, followed by peer assessment and faculty assessment against developmental criteria endorsed by the Academy's Professional Standards and Accreditation Board.   

Accreditation:  Participants are accredited as Professional Dialogue Practitioners by the Academy, entitling them to run Academy-certified Programmes for others, to use the Academy logo on their correspondence, business cards, and website, and to progress to accreditation as a Professional Dialogue Consultant.   

The Faculty:  All faculty are accredited practitioners and registered accreditors with the Academy of Professional Dialogue.  Visiting faculty members are drawn from Academy-accredited Professional Dialogue Practitioners.

The programme has exceeded my expectations. Working with a cohort that is different from my usual working environment in location, expertise, and intention has been hugely interesting, and fundamental in developing me as a person and as a dialogue practitioner.  CM, 2023

I consider this to have been a phenomenal opportunity. This level of training has deepened my comprehension of Dialogue and increased my interest in seeking more knowledge. It has been intriguing and motivating.  DM, 2023
