The Sherrards Academy

The Sherrards Academy is our newly launched learning and development platform which incorporates our full range of training courses to deliver employment law/HR related courses to line managers and HR professionals.

There are three categories of training and development opportunities on offer:

The Sherrards Academy 

Designed for people managers and HR professionals looking to deepen their understanding of the key aspects of UK employment law, the Academy is delivered in bite-sized units over a four-week period and is designed to fit in with the day to day demands of working in HR/people management. The Sherrards Academy blends direct contact with an experienced, specialist employment law solicitor with accompanying learning content which can be accessed flexibly, 24/7 via our learning platform. Successful completion of the Academy and its assignments results in the award of a certificate.

Open Courses

We offer a range of open training sessions, usually for half a day, with recent topics including managing absence, better performance management and a mock employment tribunal. One of the key benefits of these training sessions is the mix of delegates from varying organisations giving individuals the opportunity to share experiences and ideas. 


We regularly run live webinars via Zoom on topical subjects. Recent webinars have covered topics such as Menopause in the Workplace, without prejudice conversations and settlement agreements and handling subject access requests from employees.
