There are various ways to deliver Learning and Development to your team. Surprisingly, training does not always mean you have to part with your money. In fact, you may be pleased to hear that government funding in training. learning and development are currently at a high.

Statutory Training

Are you aware of what training you are legally required to give to your team? Make sure you don’t get caught out from presentations that are too basic and gloss over or completely skip vital knowledge. Instead, why not sign up for my bespoke workshops and E-Learning to make sure you are covered.


The benefits of ensuring your levels of statutory training are legally compliant are many. Learning and Development training can save you a lot of money, not to mention your reputation. So, I’m delighted to tell you that Kate Underwood HR has partnered up with Upskill People to create a unique opportunity for our clients.

Bespoke packages are available for small businesses to train in a variety of statutory topics so you can remain legal and above board.

Upskill People provide specialist hospitality training and make great use of gamification, which allows me to write bespoke courses just for you.

Some of the Learning and Development courses I offer include:

  • Fire Safety Essentials
  • Health and Safety Essentials
  • Display Screen Equipment
  • Food Hygiene Essentials
  • Equality Essentials
  • Anti-Bribery and Corruption Awareness
  • Data Security Essentials including GDPR
  • PCI Essentials

Upskill People endeavour to ensure their courses are developed and endorsed by the institutions that enforce them.

Each business has its own unique product or service and making sure your team know these products and services is imperative. With staff turnover or growth of a business, this knowledge can become diluted. Regular leaning and development training helps keep this up-to-date and is an invaluable tool for any new employee to your company.

Furthermore, my twist of geek means all of these can be delivered via E-Learning so that training comes in a consistent and fun way.

I would be happy to chat about how to design and implement this bespoke training into your business.
