We’re not your average East Midlands management training provider!

We provide East Midlands businesses with practical training for managers, supervisors, and team leaders. As you’d expect, our management, HR, wellbeing, and soft skills courses are designed and delivered by a highly qualified, experienced, and accredited team of experts. But since we also run a multi-award winning HR Consultancy, we actually do all the things we talk about in our training, on a day-to-day basis out there in the real-world. As a result, we can adopt a down-to-earth and business focused approach within our courses, bringing theory to life by drawing on numerous interesting cases that we have ourselves personally dealt with.

So, rather than boring you with a load of dull hypothetical academic talk, we’ll instead show you the best practical ways to effectively deal with the types of tricky management issues that you’re likely to really face within your workplace. Which means that our training fully involves participants through interactive exercises, case studies, and Q&A sessions. No ‘death by PowerPoint’ here.

We supply the full lifecycle of training services, all the way from initial pre-training needs analysis to post-training evaluations and follow-up support. We can deliver our management training in whatever format best suits you, ranging from single off-the-shelf bite-sized webinars to bespoke programmes of full-day classroom based sessions with comprehensive follow-up support. We don’t view our training as simply an end in itself, but rather as an effective means of helping your business get to where it wants to go.

Excellent training

I found the mental health first aid training excellent, it was delivered sensitively and professionally, everyone’s points of view were considered and respected. I would thoroughly recommend this training to other voluntary sector organisations.

Don’t be afraid

This course was offered by Loates Management Training and I’m very glad I booked onto it.
This course is a must for those that feel they are afraid to approach and offer support to a person with a mental health issue for fear of ‘getting it wrong’.
The course builds on your strength as a listener and teaches skills to support and help those around you whether at work or at home or even yourself when you are struggling with every day problems and pressures.

Fantastic course

I found the course very interactive and there was a real open forum for discussion with clear ‘learning points’ throughout. The team felt energised from the session which enables us to come us with some realistic action points from the sessions. Fantastic course, what I found most impressive what how it felt like the session was being run by someone who really understood the organisation.

Full of insight and research

If you’re going to get conned into a seminar on GDPR it might as well be one that is full of insight and research that you’d spend 100s of hours on yourself ! And then a bonus of spreadsheets and templates to make your life so much easier leading up to May !!

Annie is a really bubbly character

The webinar was led by Annie from Loates. Annie is a really bubbly character and engaged with the participants in a relaxed and friendly manner.

I found the content of the webinar really helpful in making suggestions to tweak our performance review process. As a business we are in the early implementation stages of carrying out performance reviews so it was a very timely session. Employee engagement is one of the key issues to the business succeeding. The webinar gave us an opportunity to do some little breakout exercises which gave us an opportunity to reflect on how we could help to develop our colleagues. With this being more of a workshop session we also have the opportunity to interact with others on the session. It was interesting to learn of the challenges others had and how they were trying to resolve them.
Annie is clearly a bookworm and made a number of suggestions regards to reading material to consider. My Audible account is now down to zero credit and Amazon have delivered some bedtime reading.

Thanks Annie & Loates for running this session; I found it really helpful.

Mental First Aid at Work Training Course

The Mental Health at Work Training was really useful, with practical skills to help both in and out of the workplace. The course was very engaging and I was made to feel comfortable and supported while covering the course material.

Thanks Sarah!

Enscite asked Sarah to run a workshop on important HR policies required for Small Businesses so that our clients are better equipped to understand some of the HR requirements in relation to this. The session was really well run and both engaging and informative so that our clients went away with better knowledge and having enjoyed their learning experience.
Great job Sarah!

A good start

A good start to mental health issues. I work with a lot of people with social anxiety and was hoping to gain more info on this topic but understand it may be a bit niche. I have definitely upskilled by attending this course.
