continuing professional development for line managers

Starting from Tuesday 28 April at 11am our award-winning employment lawyers and HR Consultants will be hosting a programme of six weekly sessions that will have real impact on how you manage and get the best out of your staff.

Suitable for aspiring leaders and line managers in a school setting, our weekly one-off ‘how to’ CPD programme is as follows:

Topic Date and time Hosts
Quick wins for absence management – save money and boost morale Tuesday 28 April, 11am Heather Mitchell / Tom Wallace
How to deliver a return to work meeting well Tuesday 5 May, 11am Gill Martindale / Jess Collinson-Shield
Investigations – why, when and how? Tuesday 12 May, 11am Daniella Glynn / Alex Berkshire
The role of the investigator in practice – how to get the best out of an interview, make your investigation report compelling and present to a hearing Tuesday 19 May, 11am Paul Miner / Katherine Utton
What to expect if you are asked to be on a decision making panel in a hearing (include appeals) Tuesday 2 June, 11am Eleanor Drabble / Emily Addai
How not get caught out at an employment tribunal – how would your current day to day approach to line management stand up under scrutiny? POSTPONED Heather Mitchell / Emma Hughes / Joe Babos

 

It’s easy to forget the importance of continuous professional development during periods like this. With you and your line managers so busy supporting others, it’s likely that your own development has taken a back seat whilst you prioritise the needs of your staff.

But that’s where we can come in and do our bit to help; by providing short snippets of learning and sharing best practice that you can manage and absorb around your weekly routine.

Benefit from our extensive experience with complimentary, bite-sized learning opportunities. The 30-minute sessions will help you walk back to the office with quick wins on topics such as absence management and conducting a hearing effectively. You’ll also pick up tips on how to tweak your day to day practice to put you on a better footing should you ever find yourself up before an employment tribunal judge. At the end of each session there will time for questions. Delegates will also be sent a certificate of attendance for each session attended.

The sessions are free of charge with a limit of 100 people per training session. To register your place please visit our booking page here.
