Training & Events

Training & Events

We are one of the very few employment law consultancies to offer weekly training courses – and they are delivered with our compliments to existing clients.

The courses are held online and at our West Yorkshire headquarters, in a modern, purpose-built Training Suite – complete with reception lounge, catering facilities and auditorium.

We also offer the advantage of limited free parking in our spacious grounds. As we are conveniently located within short easy distance to the motorway network (M62), plus local rail stations.

However, we also offer on-site training at your business premises if preferred.  Simply contact rachelh@elcons.co.uk for further details.

Our standard training courses are interactive and usually 2 hours in duration, so they can be easily slotted into your staff’s working schedules. We can also design longer courses if required, according to your needs.

Should you require a bespoke training programme writing specific to your organisation and culture, then that’s no problem! We can create and deliver this as a special project, at your premises if you prefer. These are chargeable outside of our current agreements, so for further information please contact rachelh@elcons.co.uk
