Open Courses

We offer a range of open training sessions, usually for half a day, with recent topics including managing absence, better performance management and a mock employment tribunal. One of the key benefits of these training sessions is the mix of delegates from varying organisations giving individuals the opportunity to share experiences and ideas. 



We regularly run live webinars via Zoom on topical subjects, pandemic related or otherwise. Recent webinars have covered topics such as the Covid-19 vaccine roll out, without prejudice conversations and settlement agreements and handling subject access requests from employees.
