Payroll expertise at the centre of everything we do

The Payroll Centre represents the evolution of three well known payroll training brands coming together under one roof; The Learn Centre, Payroll Alliance and Learn Payroll.

Payroll professionals need to be ever more informed, educated and supported in order to deal with the ever increasing pace of legislative, technical and other change, and The Payroll Centre’s mission is to help you, your team and the wider industry on this journey.

In addition to the breadth of courses and qualifications we offer. The Payroll Centre is the only organisation offering a corporate membership that informs, educates and supports entire payroll teams (and associated departments) rather than individual memberships. This provides unique client benefits, such as allowing the whole payroll team access to an entire range of materials and services, and the ability for the organisation (not an individual) to rely on The Payroll Centre’s advice.

The Payroll Centre sits on many HMRC and Government committees, such as the EPG, and represent many thousands of members and clients helping deliver more-valuable, and more-valued, input to help shape the future of the industry.

At the heart of everything we do is a desire to support payrollers and make sure they have what they need because we are passionate about payroll always being done right and we care about the people doing it.

"I have used The Learn Centre on a number of occasions and have found it provides a great platform to gain the knowledge required to carry out my job. I started off with the Payroll Technician course and this in-depth learning gave me a great foundation of payroll knowledge to build upon and give me the confidence to progress up the career ladder, well worth it and would certainly recommend, no matter what level you are at there will be a course/qualification that can help you."
