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.

High Quality Professional Training

I attended the Mental Health First Aid course held by Loates Management Training last week, I was impressed by the quality of training Amanda delivered, the course content was excellent and the reference material we took away was of a very high standard.

The venue was perfect the room was well ventilated and roomy and all the IT worked first time! Result!

I would also like to mention Loates’ team – they welcomed us and kept us well fed and watered throughout the course, they were professional courteous and delightful.

i would have no issue recommending this excellent HR consultancy for any training needs

Quality Management Training !!

I arrived at training centre feeling a bit apprehensive but was trained by a HR Jedi giving me a boost in confidence and greater understanding of HR practices, The training consisted of Case studies past experiences and example activities.
I found this course very helpful for my day to day duties within my role, it gave me a better understanding of how to approach and deal with any difficult issues which may arise in the workplace and has given me the confidence to handle them efficiently and proactively.
Sarah Loates (the course trainer) was very engaging and I felt tailored the course to my needs I was given the opportunity to ask questions, share experiences and go over sections that I felt I needed more training on, Sarah at all times remained her very bubbly self which gave me the opportunity to gain the maximum from this course.
I would definitely recommend this training as I believe this to be beneficial to any line manager. I would certainly recommend Loates Management Training to others.
Thank you for your patience and sound advice 🙂

Sarah provided us with two very comprehensive and enjoyable management training days, designed to further develop the skills of our Line Managers.
The course content and learning styles needed were varied and interactive, encouraging us to work independently and in small groups.
Everyone enjoyed the days and we would definitely use Loates Management Training again for future training needs. Thank you!

An eye opening but great course and a huge support throughout from both Annie and Mandy

Annie was lovely throughout the course. Mandy the lady that joined her on course was also great – both very knowledgeable on subject and full of empathy for offers of experiences within the training session.

Can’t wait to complete more courses through Loates – thanks again.

Putting the Fun in Fundamentals

Brilliant workshop learning about various Human Resources policies and the importance of having them, even in small businesses. It was very interesting from start to finish and educational without being boring. Would highly recommend this workshop.

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.
