Employer training courses (such as The Essentials)

We can run sessions for every pensions occasion; covering pension scheme rules, roles and responsibilities for Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution schemes and auto-enrolment. We deliver in a classroom environment or one-on-one, with specifically developed training materials.

Employer sessions provide employers with the information they need in order to meet their scheme obligations.  These sessions can be run directly at an employer premises (please contact us on 01903 835717 for more detail) or to book on an open course as an individual delegate, please select the course you require.

If you are interested in one of our courses that are currently 'not scheduled', please contact our Training team at training@mycsp.co.uk
