Learning, training & development

DPO events


Ensuring you and your colleagues are up to date with the latest legal changes, government guidance and best practice can be a challenge. The complexities and legal obligations involved with running a successful education institution are immense and so we appreciate that managing your own ongoing personal development is not always a priority.

Being so immersed in the education sector enables us to add real value. We seek to share our knowledge and add value to our clients by delivering a range of bespoke and group learning and development opportunities. Our training and development packages reduce risk by empowering you and your staff to:

  • become effective leaders, managing and getting the best out of your staff
  • use resources more efficiently
  • concentrate on delivering a first-class education and plan for the future

Our legal and HR experts offer a range of one-off and continuous development programmes to meet all of your needs. The majority of our training programmes are delivered online, but some sessions can be delivered at a location of your choice. You can choose to sign-up for the webinar session or for even greater flexibility, you can catch-up with our on-demand recordings at a time convenient for you. We also offer an executive coaching service for senior leaders in schools and academy trusts.

Whichever delivery method you choose, you will receive up to date, practical advice from our education law and HR experts.

As you will see from the list of programmes available, we also provide ample opportunities for you to share best practice with your peers and network with others in a similar role.

If you cannot find what you are looking for, give us a call and we can discuss preparing bespoke training for you and your colleagues.
