About this course
The menopause is as natural as a sunrise. However, it’s not as pleasant. It often has a negative impact on the emotional and physical health of anyone who’s experiencing it, which is why forward-thinking organisations are asking, learning, and paying attention - to make sure they take action to support their employees.
Thankfully, there’s a lot that both employers and employees can do to support those experiencing menopause, which includes menopause in the workplace training. What’s more, our menopause training course is delivered online for your convenience and can be completed on any device, at any time.
What are the benefits of menopause training for employees?
Menopause training can offer lots of valuable information for your employees, helping them to gain a wider understanding of a subject that is widely considered to be taboo. These include:
- Understanding the biological and physiological elements of menopause.
- Allows employees to better support female colleagues going through menopause.
- How to recognise menopausal symptoms in themselves and others.
- Deeper knowledge of treatment options to aid health and wellbeing.
- Helps to foster an empathetic culture that addresses stigmatised attitudes toward menopause.

Informative and helpful
A very practical and informative guide to something that has been almost taboo to talk about. I hope this helps employers to make adjustments and have the awareness to retain their most experienced and skilled staff.
Biology could be better explained
The actual biology was skipped over a bit, more detail would have made it clearer, and made the symptoms more understandable
very informative, good to hear Menopause is being taken seriously.
I feel like this course has answered some questions that have been going around in my head.. Great for everyone to understand the symptoms of the menopause.. Thank you

A really good summary of the menopause
A useful basis for those who know v little about the menopause and how to treat people at work during this phase of their lives.
Concise and informative.
I enjoyed this training, there is a good level of information provided and it's great to see the additional suggestions of where I can look if I want to know more or need some support.I would feel more than happy sharing this with my team and think it’s a super resource.
Well balanced and sensitive
Overall good on the compassion and emphasis on patience and time. Perhaps a lead into a collaborative action plan to build the confidence and allowing for the possible exception "Down Days", and a proactive "Lets walk this road together" style. I think about right for Line managers.
Why is this training important?
It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.
Employers have a legal duty to look after employees experiencing the menopause. The menopause isn’t specifically mentioned in the Equality Act - but due to the sensitive nature of the subject, there is a connection connected to the protected characteristics of age, gender reassignment, and sex. This also includes disability, if symptoms have had a substantial impact on an employee's health for 12 months or more. As menopause symptoms can last up to months or even years, it is important to make all your staff aware of this online menopause training course.
And, as it can directly impact someone’s mental and physical health, it’s also part of your employer’s Duty of Care within the Health and Safety at Work Act and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations.
Employers also have an ethical responsibility to educate themselves and other colleagues too. The aim of any organisation should be to ensure that any employees experiencing the menopause (and the peri-menopause) can access the following:
- Know where and how to access support.
- Feel confident asking their line manager for support, guidance and adjustments.
- Feel comfortable discussing their symptoms - if they choose to do so.
- Know that information they share will be handled in the strictest confidence.
- Know that their job security and promotion opportunities will not be negatively affected.
