Training and support
We deliver training to a wide range of organisations across all industry sectors.
With so many people working from home and an increasing number of staff on furlough, our e-learning/online learning courses are a great way of keeping employees engaged including those on furlough as they are still able to take part in training.
All of our e-learning courses are practical and fully interactive. We use case studies, film clips and quizzes to engage the participants and bring the subject to life. We currently have a wide selection of e-learning courses available and are able to create bespoke courses where required. Courses include:
- Anti-harassment and bullying
- Diversity training
- Unconscious bias
- Mental health in the workplace
- Disciplinary procedures
- Performance management
- Employee representatives training
- Data awareness
- Grievance investigations
- Social media in the workplace
- Modern Slavery Act
- Immigration right to work checks
- Immigration sponsorship duties
- Immigration overview of Tier 2

An interactive session for Executive Leadership which focusses on mental health and stress; creating awareness of the issues, understanding the law and risks and providing practical advice on how to handle issues that may arise in the workplace. During the session we explore the need for leaders to role model the right behaviours and how to respond to situations. The workshop has a number of interactive case studies to demonstrate the consequences of ignoring requests for support, allowing participants to work in smaller groups and contribute to wider discussions. There is a workbook which accompanies the session.
