Training Practicalities

How much will the training cost?

coaching_w350.jpgClients have said it is useful to have some idea of price when looking for training online and this is tricky for us as (like most training companies) we charge different organisations different amounts based on the nature of the training people want, what they are happy to pay and which of the associates is delivering the work. A rough idea is that our corporate rates are from £1500 to £2000 per trainer, per day, including all expenses unless a venue or international travel is needed. Our public and third sector rates are normally lower than this and we are open to offers. Integration Training is not the cheapest training company as we are good at what we do and provide a bespoke service.

£0 net long-term would be another answer to the cost question as our fundamental rule is that our training will always save you money and have a good return on investment. So while we are not the cheapest we are good value. E.g. stress training will save your organisation money in terms of sick days, churn-rate and efficiency.

Because we are confident what we do works and that you will love it, we offer a money-back satisfaction guarantee, enabling you to try the work risk free.

If you'd like some training but like many organisations currently have a reduced training budget, we recommend Train to Gain, the government initiative that funds training to a wide variety of businesses. We can help to put you in touch with your local office who can provide up to £1000 of funding for businesses employing 5-249 people as part of the Leadership and Management initiative. This could be used for leadership training, a stress or time management workshop or one-to-one coaching. There may also be other grants currently available - please ask us for details.

Who can participate in the training?

chair_w250.jpgAnyone, from any part of your organisation can participate in Integration Training courses. All courses, including Embodied Management Training, are suitable for people of all ages and body types. If employees have a physical injury or disability, exercises can easily be adapted to meet specific needs. Group size is typically between ten and fifteen, though it can vary depending on the number of employees you have, the space available and the overall objectives of your organisation. We have clients from business, government and third sector.

How long will training take and how many training sessions are needed?

Organisations today are often short on time and we appreciate this, so we provide focused training sessions. The exact time training takes will depend on your objectives. Half and full days are typical for introductions to time management and stress management for example. For leadership and management training a full day would be the minimum taster with three days + recommended. Longer courses over time which ensure "stickiness" of training are ideal - e.g. 3 days, 3 days and 4 days spread over 4 months.

As learning happens over time, follow-up sessions will lead to greater gains. Some training companies claim to be able to wave a magic-wand and fix things in ten minutes, at Integration Training we have learnt that practice, a close ongoing training relationship and real-world applications are crucial to success.

Where can training occour?

blur_w350.jpgTraining usually occurs on your business premises so it's convenient and time-effective. For embodied training such as our stress management and leadership courses an office space cleared of desks and chairs, around 50% bigger than you would use for regular training is ideal. We can also book hotels and other venues if you prefer.

People standing by or sitting at their desks can do a lot of the stress reduction exercises if no open space is available. Loose comfortable clothes are advised. For some of the more interactive training office clothes minus shoes, watches and jewellery are best and short skirts or ties not recommended.

We are based in Brighton East Sussex, London and Birmingham UK but work around the UK and the rest of the world (The Netherlands, Israel and Sierra Leone in 2011 for example).
