Workshops and Training Courses

We have a regular programme of workshops and training courses which you can book one or more places at.  Our workshops and training courses are normally held at our training facility in Sutton, our office in Beckenham or online via Zoom.  Our current Management Essentials Programme includes a series of workshops aimed at line managers and supervisors. These are delivered in eight half day workshops, over eight months, with start dates throughout the year. The programme can also be run in house for groups of up to 12.
The programme of half day workshops includes:
  • Effective Team Leadership
  • Managing Performance
  • Recruiting Staff
  • Discipline and Grievance
  • Managing Conflict
  • Communicating with Confidence
  • Managing Absence
  • HR Administration
  • Diversity & Inclusion
Working through case studies and other ‘real-life’ examples, participants will receive a host of practical tips. These workshops are aimed at line managers or those who have supervisory responsibilities and day-to-day management of others.

Free Seminars or Webinars

Our free seminars, lead by Helen Colechin, Maria Kurek and Fintan O’Toole are held at Jury’s Inn, Croydon and at The Warren in Bromley.  We have converted these to webinars during the pandemic and will aim to provide a mix of on and offline sessions in 2022.  The seminars cover at least one HR topic and a practical employment law update plus some useful health & safety tips for businesses.  Delegates take away a pack which includes information on one of the topics.
Have a look at our events calendar for details of the upcoming seminars/webinars and to reserve your place.
