HR Services

In Hertfordshire 98.8% of schools and academies subscribe to the HR Services provided by Herts for Learning.

The team is led by David Windridge, an experienced HR Leader. With 27 Years working in the commercial sector, and over ten years’ experience working in operational management roles, he has an in depth understanding of the people pressures leaders and managers face on a day-to-day basis.

The HR Services team at Herts for Learning provides high-quality advice and guidance on employee relations and personnel matters to schools and school staff.

The service specialises in advising on employment issues, including sensitive cases arising from:

  • Absence management
  • Disciplinary issues
  • Grievance
  • Capability
  • Organisational change, including redundancy situations
  • The Equality Act

The HR Services team is also responsible for creating and publishing model HR policies, procedures and guidance for schools, in consultation with recognised trade unions and professional associations. These and other useful resources are available on the HR Portal of the Herts for Learning website. 

Alongside the advisory service, The HR Services team offers a consultancy service. By working side by side your setting, we can tailor bespoke training needs to ensure that you and your team can undertake routine HR tasks in the future.

We have also negotiated special rates for HfL schools with a number of external business services partners, including health and wellbeing and financial services. You can find details of these here.
