Training sessions for managers and staff

All attendees will receive a focused toolkit attendee pack. We will also refer to your own policies on the training topic during the session to improve awareness and use of these policies thereafter. This also assists with your legal compliance. If you would like a series of bite-size sessions, we can also discuss this with you. The training can be carried out at your site or you are very welcome to use one of our offices if you prefer. We also offer online sessions, including all of the above.

As a consequence we have run some very engaging session, sparking some real debate which demonstrates the level of understanding the delegates gained.”
