Travel: For face-to-face courses, if the trainer has to travel more than 40 miles from their home to get to your venue, we charge 40p per mile (however, we don’t you charge for the first 80 miles – that’s on us!). So, for example, if the trainer has to travel 50 miles from their house to get to your venue, their round trip is 100 miles. We take off 80 miles: 100 miles – 80 miles = 20 miles. We then charge those 20 miles at 40p per mile = £8.00 total charge. We don’t make a profit on this, all this money goes to the trainer. This allows us to keep our prices competitive. If it’s much cheaper on public transport then we might charge this cost instead (although bear in mind the trainer often has a lot to carry, so this isn’t always possible).
Accommodation: If the trainer needs to travel more than 2 hours to get to your venue, we also charge £65 to put them up in a hotel the night before. Otherwise you’d have a very weary trainer and not really get the most out of the course. We’d also find it very difficult to recruit trainers if we didn’t treat them nicely like this!
Once we allocate a trainer to your course, we can calculate these travel expenses and let you know.
