Ward Hadaway’s Continuing Professional Development Programme

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Ward Hadaway Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Programme; a new programme of HR and employment law training designed for our clients and contacts.

In this programme spread over the year, we look at six key topics which people teams come across day in day out. We will then discuss recent innovations we are seeing, challenges posed by the changing face of the workplace, and recent case law updates.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions via the Q&A feature, or our teams will be on hand for drop-in sessions for attendees after each event.

We’ll start the CPD program in October 2021 and the following 6 sessions will run throughout the year:

  1. Recruitment, Contracts of employment and Handbook
  2. Managing capability: performance and sickness absence
  3. Grievances and Whistleblowing
  4. Discrimination and Family friendly rights
  5. Dealing with misconduct: investigations and disciplinary matters
  6. Employment Tribunal claims

These sessions are completely free and will take place by Zoom, so they will not disrupt your day. They are perfect for HR professionals and managers who have responsibility for managing people.

Each topic will have three sessions, a general session available for all, a session for those working in schools and a session for those working in the charities sector.

Recordings of the sessions on Recruitment, Contracts of employment and Handbook and managing capability: performance and sickness absence can be found below.

The next set of webinars will focus on grievances and whistleblowing, they will take place on 1st February (for everyone) book here, 2nd February (for schools) book here and 3rd February (for charities) book here.

We hope to see you there.
