Employer role training
The employer role workshop is aimed at employers offering the LGPS in England and Wales. You do not need a working knowledge of the LGPS to attend the course; however, some experience of the scheme is preferable.
It is a one-day workshop that is currently being offered virtually using Microsoft Teams. The training will be delivered by an experienced tutor with a maximum of 15 attendees, to allow enough opportunity to engage with the tutor and other attendees.
Attendees will be provided with a detailed set of electronic notes that can be downloaded and saved for future reference.
