For C2S members, we’re also happy to give between 10% and 15% discount off any of our other open courses running throughout the year (Exact discount depends on the course). Details of these can be found on our website . Members just need to contact us and we’ll apply the discount.

Alternatively, we’ll provide a free HR Audit to identify any risks within the business. We’ll look at policies, procedures and practices and will “traffic light” the various areas of the business, marking them green, amber or red, so that owners and directors can easily identify potential issues and prioritise how they are managed.

And all members are welcome to attend our free Employment Law Update Breakfast Meetings. The Gloucester/Cheltenham meeting is held at Brickhampton (the next one is on 13th October) and we also hold one at Worcester Rugby Club.
