We're highly qualified & experienced HR trainers

Our HR & employment law courses are designed and delivered by Sarah Loates, founder of 5-star rated HR consultancy LoatesHR, and a practising senior HR consultant with over 20 years of experience across a wide range of company types and industry sectors. Sarah's considerable personal hands-on HR expertise allows her to adopt a practical and business-focussed approach within her training. As a result, she is able to bring theory to life with numerous interesting real-world examples, and show you the best ways to effectively deal with the types of tricky HR and employment law issues that you're actually likely to face in practice. And since Sarah is a current CIPD trainer, and has also taught at several local universities, she knows how to deliver engaging courses that fully involve participants through practical exercises, case studies, and Q&A sessions. No ‘death by PowerPoint’ here.

To supplement the HR & employment law training that we ourselves provide, we also have a network of trusted training partners who can deliver courses in a number of related areas.
