Understanding Legal and HR Frameworks

This is a new consultancy service provided by ASCL Professional Development, which builds on the success of the half day Practical Law courses. Recognising the importance for senior leaders to have a thorough understanding of the legal and HR frameworks affecting their particular areas of responsibility, we have created a suite of sessions that can be delivered independently or combined to create a programme that is matched to the needs of the staff in your school or college. A selection of the sessions we provide include:

  • investigations

  • disciplinary and capability procedures

  • family friendly law and absence management

  • managing the workplace

  • leading formal hearings

  • pay appeals

  • data protection and freedom of Information

  • health and safety

  • HR overview
