HR & Employment Law Training for business owners, line managers, and HR professionals

We make business sense

So, stop wasting your effort continuously firefighting people problems, and free up your time and energy so it can be put to better use developing your business. Equip your managers to effectively deal with staff issues before they become a major incident. Become confident that they can keep your workforce operating smoothly on a day-to-day basis, without requiring your constant personal involvement. Move to a people strategy based on planning what you want to achieve in the future, rather than just reacting to what has already occurred.

We can meet your HR & employment law training needs

In addition to the public open courses that we regularly run covering popular HR and employment law topics, we can also design and deliver private bespoke courses tailored to the specific needs of your business. We can deliver these either at your site or ours, schedule them out of hours to minimise workplace disruption, and offer discounts based on number of delegates and sessions required. 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. So, whether you have a single person who needs to develop in-depth knowledge of a particular topic, or a whole team that needs to gain more general skills, we're confident that we can provide what you need.

We can support you practically

And to help give you the confidence to put what you've learned into practice, all of our courses include a free HR document template pack, and optional access to a post-training HR support hotline provided by Loates HR Consultancy.

We provide both quality & value

We're so confident about the quality of our courses, and the business value they provide, that we offer a no-quibble money-back guarantee. If you don't think the training was worth it, we'll give you your money back. No fuss, no debates, no arguments. Just ask. Simple as that.

Quality HR 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 HR Training to others.
Thank you for your patience and sound advice 🙂

Mental Health First Aid training; a great investment.

I recently attended the 2-day Mental Health First Aid training at Loates HR 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.

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 !!

A Good Day’s Training!

Loates HR Training were approached to provide 2 in-house half day training courses on ‘Recruitment & Selection’ to staff and trustees involved in this practice. Throughout all correspondence, Sarah has been very professional, helpful and took time to understand what we as an organisation required and what we are about.

The training itself, was relevant to us as an organisation, highlighted best practice and current law and used a mixture of presentation and interactive sessions to assist our learning. It was very well received by all involved, was informative and challenged all to think about the practices we use. It was also a lot of fun!

Overall, we are extremely pleased with the training provided which we also feel was good value for money. The Liversage Trust would have no hesitation in using Loates HR Training again for any further needs.

A great training session

I just wanted to say thank you to Sarah and Annie for a great training session yesterday for Timms Solicitors partners, associates and the management team. We thoroughly enjoyed the session and the energy in the room was brilliant. I have learnt a great deal about my team and they have learnt about themselves and how to manage their behaviour in the office and gain respect from the staff. I must say I was very proud of the way they all engaged and the contributions they made. Thank you so much for bringing out the best in us.

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.

Comprehensive and enjoyable

Sarah provided us with two very comprehensive and enjoyable HR 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 HR Training again for future training needs. Thank you!

The training was brilliant

The training was brilliant – took away a lot of information. Tell Sarah she scored 5 star all areas – polite, professional, knowledgeable and I wouldn’t change a thing
