7. Employer events and training
To support you in your role as an LGPS employer, we run free regular training webinars. We also offer free induction webinars for your employees.
Webinars are conducted as Microsoft Teams (MS Teams) Live Events. Upcoming webinars are listed below.
This page also explains how to book and what you can expect from a live webinar.
Upcoming employer webinars
There are currently no employer webinars scheduled. A new programme of employer webinars will be announced soon.
How to book
You can attend as many webinars as you wish and there is no limit on the number of places you can reserve.
To book yourself or any other members of your organisation onto one or more of the webinars, email firstname.lastname@example.org confirming the:
- name of your organisation
- full name of all attendees
- full email addresses of all attendees
We will then send out an invite for the event. This will contain a link you will need to click on to access the webinar. If you do not use outlook, ensure that you don’t miss out by adding the event to your calendar.
Attending a webinar
If you don’t have the MS Teams application, you will still be able to attend the webinar.
There will be an opportunity at the end of each webinar to ask any questions you have via the chat bar. Please be aware that we will only be able to answer general questions about the subjects covered in the training. If you have specific questions in relation to your organisation, you should discuss these directly with your Employer Liaison Officer. You won’t need to have your camera or microphone on when you attend the event.
Please ensure you click the link at the right time to access the webinar. We advise joining a few minutes before the webinar is due to start to ensure you can access the webinar.
For quality and training purposes, all webinars will be recorded. You will not be able to record the event.
After attending a webinar
After you attend the webinar, we will issue any accompanying notes and PowerPoint slides to the email addresses you provided at the time of booking.
To help us monitor the quality of the training we provide, please take a few minutes to let us know how you found the webinar. You can do this by sending us a quick email or completing any survey sent out to you.
