NO LONGER RUNNING: Managing Absence


More than 80% of a school budget is spent on staff costs and the ability to effectively manage those human resources is key to successful pupil outcomes. This course will help middle and senior leaders to develop and build on their HR skills in managing employee absence.


This session will cover:

  • Managing sickness absence.
  • Undertaking the sickness procedure.
  • Undertaking sickness meetings.
  • Reasonable adjustments.
  • Preparing for sickness hearings.
  • Managing other absence, such as leave of absence and career breaks.

Cost per person: £87.50

Where participants have registered and are accepted onto courses there is an expectation that cancellation is made via the schoolsupport.luton.gov.uk website within forty eight working hours Mon-Fri of the course start time if they are unable to attend. It is the responsibility of the attendee to sign the register otherwise this will count as non-attendance. Failure to do so will result in being charged for the delegate place.

Delegates who attend this session without booking a place will be charged £25.00 per place in addition to any course fee.


Head teachers, Senior and middle managers, business managers, support staff dealing with sickness and leave of absence.
