A huge thank you to Sarah and Annie who ran a HR / people workshop for our Partners and Associates on their Pathway to Partnership journey. Sarah devised a bespoke package that was exceptionally engaging, literally kept everyone on their toes all day! We all learnt about ourselves,working with others, our employee branding, our values, and finished it all off with having a courageous conversation, We achieved so much in one day and we all certainly slept well that night. i can absolutely 100% recommend Sarah and her team.

I recently attended a MHFA course facilitated by Loates. Fantastic course, brilliant content and amazing delivery. The facilities at Loates' new home at Darley Abbey Mills are modern with wonderful architecture. Attending a course you will be well looked after from lovely lunches, fruit platters, chocolate and a choice of drinks. 5* treatment.

I recently went on the Disciplinaries, Dismissals and Tribunals and the AWOL, Absence and Capability courses as someone with very little knowledge on the subject. However, the level of information provided on these courses has helped to give me the confidence to be able to handle such issues in the workplace.The courses were interactive and case studies were often used to show the best approach to handle a situation. Furthermore, Sarah provided a variety of materials throughout the course, including showing templates of various documents which could be useful, and made sure that a high level of information was also available following this.Moreover, Sarah was both extremely friendly and welcoming, whilst offering informative training due to her in depth HR knowledge. Which I personally found helped me to develop my understandings around HR. I cannot recommend Loates training enough!

We ran the HR Essentials training for our management team recently and it was great. The 2 days provided them with all the information they needed to deal with staffing issues but more importantly the confidence they needed to do this effectively. The sessions were relaxed but formal enough for the training to be delivered at a level where all involved related to the content and understood as we had a mixed group of various management experiences. We would certainly use Sarah and Loates Training again for any training needs.

Sarah is an exceptional trainer. Sarah absorbs information and has an eye for technical detail. Sarah was appointed by us to provide 1 day intensive training courses for employers needing to understand auto enrolment legislation and set up their workplace pensions. She delivered training in an engaging interactive way and the feedback from delegates was that they felt confident about their responsibilities and would be able to implement the practical elements of the course into their processes. Thank you Sarah, it was a pleasure to work with you Jackie Fancourt Step by Step Auto Enrolment Ltd

I attended the ‘GDPR Making it Happen’ workshop back in April as someone with very little knowledge of the topic.Sarah and her team were very welcoming. The class had a relaxed atmosphere while really getting to the point. Sarah was very informative, with answers to almost all of our questions. If anything was raised with uncertainty of the answers, notes were made and answers were delivered to us after the course. The course also included follow up support, which was really handy for any further questions.During the workshop there was a good mix of handy, informative PowerPoint slides and tasks for us to work through. This ensured we really were taking in all of the information presented to us.The content was clear and easy to digest, even with a tricky subject such as GDPR.A benefit of the course was that it was limited to a small group, so there was plenty of opportunity to ask questions and go through things with Sarah.I would recommend the LoatesTraining courses to anyone looking to become more informed in areas of their businesses, whether you are a business owner or a member of staff like myself.The team also presented us with a light breakfast, with tea and coffee throughout the day- bonus!Katie Aldridge Essential Print Services (Derby)

We have been working with Loates for a number of years and are very pleased with the support we get from Loates HR. So far, we've worked on a number of varying projects; from updating our staff handbook and contracts, to management training regarding absenteeism, staff information sessions and onsite support with difficult HR-issues. The thing I love most about working with Loates - apart from their wealth of knowledge, they're very responsive and keen to share their knowledge with us. So at some point in the future, we may be able to deal with HR independently. But for now, I couldn't think of a better partner. Thanks for the support Team Loates!

HR Training & Employment Law Training

Equip your managers to spot and effectively deal with people issues at the earliest possible opportunity, keeping 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.

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. We've already helped many clients, and have received consistently excellent feedback from them, so we're confident that we can help you too.

Fantastic interactive/inclusive teaching style

Deb have now used Loates HR Training to deliver 3 management coaching sessions, each of which has been very well received. Sarah has a fantastic interactive/inclusive teaching style which really gets the best out of the group and helps to underpin the core learning. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Loates HR Training to others, they are professional, and deliver effective, fun training sessions – a breath of fresh air.

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.

Informative and interesting course

Sarah provided training to a group of line managers in our business with the aim of giving them more confidence in dealing with everyday situations which they come up against. Sarah delivered the training in an informative and interesting way and engaged the managers which made the day go by in a flash. Sarah was also very flexible with timings in order to accommodate the different shifts. I would recommend Loates HR Training to any business.

Excellent training

Having worked with Sarah previously, I didn’t hesitate in contacting her when a requirement arose for some HR training. From our initial contact, Sarah picked up very quickly on what was required and went on to provide excellent training to the whole of our staff. She pitched the training perfectly and demonstrated her knowledge with aplomb when answering questions during the sessions. All feedback on Sarah’s training was very positive. Thank you Sarah!

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.

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!

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!
