Affordable Training Options

Here at Concept Training we are very aware that budgets for training are tighter than ever before, and that schools and other establishments are doing their very best to maintain standards with very little funding.

However, we also know of the importance of high quality training and the need for evidence of such training

With this in mind we are starting to adapt some of our Open College Network accredited courses to be delivered as distance learning courses.

So far, we can offer “An Introduction to Autism”, Level 2 and “Supporting Learners with ADHD”, Level 2

Both courses can be studied at a convenient time wherever there is access to the Internet.  They would probably take around six hours to complete, (the equivalent of a one day workshop) but could be completed in convenient chunks.

The really great think about studying the courses in this way is the considerable reduction in cost.  For instance, to send a person on a “face to face” accredited workshop costs between £240 and £270, depending on location.  With the distance learning the cost is £120 (ex vat) per person.   There are no travel expenses and no cover costs for schools and centres to worry about.   The courses can even be undertaken by people outside the UK.

We really hope that this will help when funds are hard to come by.

Do give us a call on 01524 832828 or Email if you’d like any more information.


Very best wishes

Half Day Courses

These short workshops are perfect for teachers and learning support staff to develop their skills in areas specific to them. The sessions are practical and participants will go away with lots of ideas and strategies for immediate impact

Courses start at £80 per person, and because the workshops are half days, it should be much easier to cover staff while training. These courses can even be delivered at a lower fee per person as In House Training, and could even be delivered outside working hours as “twilight” sessions
