The awards follow a two day intensive study course designed to help the solicitors improve upon their existing presentation and teaching skills; culminating in them having to prepare and deliver a videoed presentation for external evaluation.
The firm’s growing focus on professional training is being spearheaded by Brian Harrington, an employment law partner at Lupton Fawcett, who also acts as an associate tutor for the University of York’s professional development and training unit.
Commenting on his colleagues’ success, Brian states that:
“Lupton Fawcett LLP offers a large number of training courses and workshops from its offices in York, Leeds and Sheffield but also externally at client locations as well.”
Brian goes on to say:
“We also run regular HR talks and events, together with our popular annual employment law seminars which regularly attract hundreds of delegates from a diverse and broad range of Yorkshire based businesses.
In addition, we have arranged a number of workshops covering the important issue of GDPR and these have turned out to be hugely successful, with several additional dates recently being added in order to keep up with demand.
The externally accredited training that our solicitors receive means that they are able to present information, which may at times be quite complex, in an engaging, confident and informative way. It also underscores the firm’s commitment to invest in staff and their own continuing professional development.”
