About our Update Series

Legislation, regulation, standards, codes and best practices are constantly changing. Even for someone within an industry, it is important to stay abreast of any and all changes, in order to perform at your best in your role.

PAI operates under an ethos of encouraging and developing Lifelong Learning.

Our Update Series consists of one-off sessions that explain and discuss pertinent issues. These update sessions assume a prior knowledge of the subject, and are most beneficial to those already in an industry, who wishes to improve or update their knowledge.

Topics will often follow the introduction of legislation or regulations that will have wide-spread effects. Our Training team work closely with industry experts, on our Academic Council and throughout the rest of the organisation, to develop sessions that will be useful and timely.

Upcoming Update Sessions

Talent management – a practical public sector perspective

Friday 27 April

When long-time employees leave an organisation, they often take with them a lot of ‘tribal knowledge’ relevant not only to their role, but to the organisation as a whole. Through strategic HR methods, these departures can be planned for, and the impact lessened. This workshop helps attendees develop and implement a strong succession plan to ensure very little knowledge is lost when an employee moves on.

However, despite the length of time that they have been statutorily in place, the preparing and publication of them is still patchy. This half-day seminar will look at the process, the reasons behind the preparation, and the outcomes to which it can lead.
