TRAINING & EVENTS
Understanding your responsibilities as an LGPS employer is very important to the smooth running of the Fund. LPPA and the Local Government Association (LGA) run a number of training events throughout the year for employers in the LGPS.
LPPA provides training to help employers with administration matters. Please contact LPPA for further details.
You can see details of upcoming courses and contact details to book on the LGA website at: https://www.local.gov.uk/events
The LGA also has a wide range of online resources available. If you would prefer to work through material in your own time, please visit this site.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss your training needs.
This event is a great opportunity to help our more senior employers find out about the LPFA Fund, to meet the LPFA management team and to understand some of the major pension issues ahead. After taking a year break from our long-established Employer Forum in 2020, we are pleased to announce that the 2021 Employer Forum will take place on 4 November at the London Fire Brigade offices in Union Street from 10:00 until 15:00. This is an annual opportunity to hear from various LPFA speakers about the latest updates and network with fellow employers. The forum will also be an opportunity for you to ask questions about the 2022 Triennial Valuation.
To find out more, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org

LPPA Practitioners’ Forum
Through LPPA, we also host a Practitioners’ Forum for payroll, reward, HR and other staff more directly involved in the day-to-day pension processes. This Forum covers future changes and updates to the administration system, the member and employer portal, new regulatory requirements as well as extensive workshops and Q&A sessions. Click to view the recording of Day 1 of the June conference here, and Day 2 here.
We consult with employers whenever we make changes to some of our key documents, such as the Funding Strategy Statement or Pensions Administration Strategy. These consultations are announced by email to our employers and as news bulletins on this website. Update your contact details to make sure you receive updates about any upcoming consultations.
