Our credentials – what makes our training different

Why choose an Eversheds Sutherland public training course?

  • Most of our public courses are 'team taught' by a legal trainer and a consultant to give you a practical and lawful approach to people issues.
  • We limit numbers of delegates to help you seek the information you need and discuss issues.
  • Interactivity with speakers and between delegates is encouraged to help understanding.
  • Course materials are written to fit the course and are updated before every course.
  • We employ a range of interactivity to ensure our training is stimulating, memorable and, most importantly, effective.
  • Most of our training courses are hosted in Eversheds Sutherland's modern offices which are conveniently located in city centres. This allows us to pass on cost savings as reflected in the fair value pricing of our training course fees.
  • Our down-to-earth approach to the law combined with practitioner experience means that what you learn today will help you tomorrow.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Our courses are eligible for (where appropriate) Solicitors Regulation Authority CPD, Pensions Management Institute CPD, CPD at the Bar Council and Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development Continuous Professional Developments hours.

Why train?

Any employer who has been to an employment tribunal, or court, or has been investigated by the authorities will understand the benefit of proactive training. Breaches of law in the workplace, which may have been inadvertent, can result in damage to people's careers and to corporate reputation. The costs in terms of lost management time, damaged morale, legal fees and financial penalties are also significant. Companies may also find themselves ruled out of business opportunities for tenders with public sector organisations.

And there is a further benefit...

Employment tribunals expect employers to take 'all reasonable steps' to make sure their organisation complies with employment law. If sound policies and complaint procedures are backed up by training and awareness programmes that ensure employees understand their rights and responsibilities, an employer will be well placed to defend a discrimination claim at tribunal.

Most employers have difficulty proving they have done enough to rely on this defence. Our courses will help you demonstrate your commitment to good practice.
