At Slater and Gordon we have an L&D team dedicated to our business. The team are on-site to listen to individual learning needs and provide all employees with the opportunities to achieve their potential and progress with their career.

Learning & Development is seen as an integral part of the firm’s growth. We recognise the skills that people have and the skills that they need to develop in order to reach their goals.

We support employees to shape their own development through the appraisal process and provide the tools to help them grow with the organisation.

From day one you will be given a comprehensive induction and access to the national training and development opportunities on offer. This programme covers a variety of topics such as soft skills, management development, IT, and technical skills training.

We realise that not everyone likes to learn in the same way so our training program uses a blended approach including 1:1 coaching sessions, E-Learning and traditional classroom training. We are also committed to supporting a variety of other development solutions such as departmental conferences, team building and funding for professional study.

We run courses across our various UK offices each month and are continuously monitoring and updating the learning and development offerings based on what our employees tell us. Through a mixture of internal experts and external providers we have developed a suite of courses tailored for all functions within the organisation.

As an in-house CPD provider we are authorised to provide our fee earners with legal training and regular updates, to keep them abreast of changes within the law, which can be counted towards their minimum 16 CPD hours per year.
