When clients have a number of staff requiring the same training course/s, In-House may offer the most cost-effective way of providing the training. The content and delivery of appropriate courses can be adjusted to suit any level of staff or, where necessary, and where possible cater for a mixed ability/knowledge group.
Training can be provided either at the client’s premises or at an external venue, in 3 different ways:
The client requires a standard course, without amendments.
Standard courses (with minor amendments)
The client requires minor amendments or a change in emphasis to the standard course outline. This can involve adding/deducting certain sections or targeting the course content towards the client’s particular area of work. Depending on the extent of the amendments either no fee or only an agreed small one off additional fee will apply.
This applies when a course is completely structured to satisfy a client’s specific needs. The course will be designed and developed from scratch to suit their requirements, often incorporating elements of the company’s systems, procedures or philosophy. This would normally attract an agreed one off additional development fee.
All In-House courses are charged at an agreed daily rate, irrespective of numbers, but normally up to a recommended maximum of 16 delegates.
Discounts are available on our standard course fees to clients who wish to confirm multiple bookings at one time. Our policy is:
3 to 5 courses by 5%
6 to 8 courses by 10%
9+ courses by 15%
The normal duration of our courses are from 9.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. with a one hour lunch break and two shorter breaks of 15 minutes but this may be amended to suit client requirements.
Symmons Madge Associates currently provides from 400 to 500 In-House courses a year across the UK to Consultants, Contractors and Local Authorities as well as many other organisations. The vast majority of our courses are delivered in the UK but we also respond to requests from UK based clients or clients based overseas who require training courses to be delivered overseas.
