Webinars

NUS are committed to offering a wide range of training and best practice updates via webinars.
 
DWF, employment law solicitors and NUS preferred supplier, delivered a series of eight webinars for students’ unions on a range of HR-related subjects.
  
The topics that made up this HR webinar series were selected from areas students’ unions have asked for guidance on, and areas that we felt would be particularly pertinent for those working in HR in students’ unions. Recordings of the webinars and the associated slides are below.

Future webinar sessions will be advertised here soon.

If you have any questions or would like to propose a topic for future webinars, please email Claire.Marsland@nus.org.uk
