Do you feel you lack confidence and knowledge when it comes to leading your people?

Maybe you know you need more staff, but you have no clue how to attract, hire, develop, and retain employees?

Maybe you have existing team members who you are finding challenging and you don’t know how to appropriately manage their conduct or capability?

Do you find yourself confused by all the technical and legal jargon being used in the industry?

If you said yes to any of these questions, that’s okay. The truth is, most business owners and leaders, like yourself, are amazing at their skill and/or trade, but lack the necessary knowledge and confidence to get the best from their team and allow successful long-term growth.

Here’s how we can help:

People Academy Face to Face Training

The People Academy workshops cover the following topics:

  • Recruitment & Onboarding
  • Induction & Probationary
  • Effective Communication
  • Leadership
  • Development & Promotion
  • Motivation & Engagement
  • Conduct & Disciplinary
  • Grievance & Conflict
  • Sickness & Capability
  • Introduction to Mental Health

  • Succession & Talent Planning

Who this course is for?

The course is specifically designed for small businesses and will provide everything you need to know to successfully overcome the many people-related challenges you may face as a leader, plus gain knowledge and expertise to build a confident, productive, and motivated team that helps you drive your business forward.


People Academy’s face to face training is primarily held in our Peterborough training centre. However, we also provide in-house courses for clients who have 6 or more delegates wanting to attend the course, which can be held in our training centre or within your premises.

The Virtual People Academy

If our face to face training sounds beneficial for you and your business, but you may not be able to commit to regular face-to-face sessions or you are not local to our training centre, we are pleased to offer The Virtual People Academy, covering all the same content but delivered 100% online.

People Academy Online Workshops & Course

We have carefully crafted a large range of online leadership & people management workshops, to help provide business owners and leaders like you with all the necessary tools, knowledge, and support you need to grow your team and scale your business in the way you truly want.

We know from working with our clients for so many years that sometimes you will just need bitesize or refresher training on certain topics.

In 2023 we launched our online workshop and course, offering the same great People Academy content, but bitesize learning of approximately 45 minutes per session.

In 2024 we are continuing to add to our selection of workshops including the following:

  • Redundancy
  • Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

The People Academy Hub

If as a business owner or senior leader, you want the flexibility of online bitesize learning, but also a supportive network of like-minded individuals, plus the training of People Academy, we have the solution for you.

  • Access to the full range of online workshops, as well as access to the private People Academy Hub Membership Group.
  • Jam packed with great learning all within a supportive environment, you get the best of both worlds, plus extra bonuses exclusive to being in the membership.
