Frequently Asked Questions

Please get in touch to discuss your requirements from leading on short term projects to providing bespoke training days for your school.


Can I have training delivered in my school?

Courses can be specifically designed for teachers / leaders or teaching assistants in your school. You may like to customise an existing course or have a bespoke course created especially to meet your training needs. For in-house training - the school provides the room, the data projector and screen, and refreshments for colleagues. Cabaret style layout works best, enabling colleagues to collaborate more easily. Full day, half day, twilights or multiple sessions are available.

HOW MUCH DOES A TRAINING DAY COST for my school?

The cost varies depending on the nature of the training delivered. Usually a full day training is between £650 and £850. The base price covers the first fifteen people, above which there an amount per person which is usually around £20. This represents excellent value for money, particularly if training all your teachers, and includes a CD of all the materials, plus delegate handouts.

Twilight session are usually £350 for up to a 2 hour session and £400 for a longer twilight. This base price covers the first fifteen colleagues in a school with a charge of £12 per additional colleague. If outside of West Yorkshire travel costs apply at 40p per mile plus overnight accommodation costs where applicable.

WHAT IF I WOULD LIKE TO TRAIN WITH ANOTHER SCHOOL?

Training can be provided for groups of schools. The hosting school provides lunch and refreshments. External venues and catering can be provided at additional cost if necessary or organised by the lead school. Each school receives a CD of materials. If all colleagues from a each school are attending, then the price is typically £675 for the first 15 colleagues and £20 per additional colleague. However, if single individuals or just a few colleagues are attending from a school then there is a separate day delegate rate which usually ranges from £120 down to £40. This is to reflect that all of the training materials and resources are then accessible to the other schools involved. Please do get in touch for a no obligation quote for training that involved multiple schools as it is a great way to share ideas, good practice and costs.

 
 
can you arrange a venue and catering for us?

If in Leeds, the answer to this usually 'yes'. I can source a local venue for approximately £40 per person but often the school arranges this element of the package. Outside Leeds the school may have more local knowledge, but hotel rates are usually between £30 and £45 per delegate plus a room hire rate. An off site venue can often be advantageous, particularly when working as senior leadership team or training with colleagues from more than one school. Please allow at least 6 weeks notice if you wish to book training with an external venue. Payment for external venues is non refundable.
