What our Delegates say:

“I have always found Acas courses to be informative and pertinent to the topic in hand, and adjusted to suit the individual needs of attendees as much as possible. This was true of a recent course I attended in respect of Redundancy and Restructuring. The trainer obviously had much personal experience to bring to the session along with his depth of knowledge. Whilst employment law is seemingly never straightforward, I did gain more confidence in preparation to making the necessary changes within the organisation I represent.”
