APIL events need to be financially viable in order to run. In the past we have taken our training to the more remote locations and also delivered more training in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Unfortunately, due to the number of members in some areas it is unlikely that we shall have an attendance of more than 10, particularly with specialist training, and APIL cannot afford to run courses which are loss leaders. From time to time, we organises events at vastly reduced rates in order to meet the needs of the membership.
APIL has increased its webinar offering over the past couple of years and this is a growth area. We hope to deliver our training by webinar for our members who cannot get to our courses. APIL has also introduced a quarterly review, delivered by our president and chief executive, which is free of charge for APIL members and provides four hours of CPD annually. The quarterly reviews cover developments over the past three months and highlight forthcoming activity in cases of impending reforms and legislation.
For those members in firms that are close to other firms in the region, APIL will provide consortium training. Details on how this works can be found here: www.apil.org.uk/consortiums
