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

The MHFA Two Day course is superb

The MHFA Two Day course is superb. Loates trainer Amanda delivered the course in a relaxed and enjoyable manner, engaging everybody and making difficult subjects very easy to discuss and learn about. The practical exercises were actually fun but with a serious point, the Hearing Voices one really brought home to me how some people suffer. The course covers depression and anxiety, suicide, psychosis and gives you a framework to use to help people. The course book is huge, well produced and contains more detailed information than you need for the course, you take it away and dip in it at your leisure. Loates training rooms allowed for small group work and large discussions with large screen and good sound.

This course opened my eyes to what people go through, and that many people are affected. Everyone was open which added to the learning atmosphere. I recommend this course to everyone, all levels and all roles. The more we talk, the stronger we all are.

Boosted my spirit and made me laugh lots!

I have attended numerous training sessions with Annie and always find her to be an engaging and relevant trainer. My last session on ‘How to rebuild employee trust and morale’ was a worthwhile couple of hours that boosted my spirit and made me laugh lots! Now I am looking to see what other sessions you offer!

Mental Health First Aid training; a great investment.

I recently attended the 2-day Mental Health First Aid training at Loates Management Training and am really pleased I did. Sometimes it’s hard to allow yourself two days ‘off work’ and invest in your own development, but I’m glad I did. Apart from increasing my knowledge about mental health, the training has given me the confidence to approach staff about mental health, the focus to further invest in mental health awareness and – as a great bonus – the importance of self-care was a great reminder.

P.S. The training room in Loates’ new facility in Darley Mills is fantastic too – onsite parking and a stroll in the park at break time.

Comprehensive and enjoyable

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!

Comprehensive and engaging

We recently had the privilege of attending one of their training workshops on the subject preparing for GDPR. The workshop was incredibly well planned and delivered in a comprehensive and engaging manner, the workshop included the supply of valuable assets and documents for attendees to take away and use within their business. I have come away from this workshop feeling far more knowledgeable and prepared for the new GDPR legislation.

Excellent Course

Loates Management Training have fantastic offices in Darley Abbey Mills, which were perfect for holding the training course.

The course instructor Amanda, was very knowledgeable and delivered the 2 day course well. The course itself was informative, it helped increase awareness of mental health, the importance of having positive mental health, and the difficulties people can experience when they have poor mental health.

Having completed the course, I’m now better equipped to spot poor mental health and know how best to approach and support this in the workplace.

Essential and well delivered training

This training is essential for managers and employees who need to have a clear understanding of Mental health and practical structured ways to support their team.
Mental Health First Aid does exactly that.
I really benefited from Annie’s open-ness and professional knowledge coupled with the group discussions and learning gained from other candidates in different industries was extremely valuable.
It has really helped me identify new ways of working and supporting the health of my team. This course, just like physical first aid gives clear guidance on immediate support that can be applied in a multitude of scenarios.
I would recommend this training for at least one person in every workplace.
