How much does it cost?

This includes:

  • access to your online course for 12 months
  • online support from a specialist tutor while you complete the course – typically up to 4 months

Organisations

An employer purchasing places for a number of people might opt for more tutor contact, such as a group workshop, which would incur an additional charge to cover the tutor’s time and travel expenses.

Alternatively, schools or local authorities enrolling a number of employees on a course might opt to have an in-house specialist provide tutor support. In this situation, the in-house specialist would complete the course(s) as a participant first, and take part in tutor training.

Organisations can also be eligible for discounts on multiple purchases – If you’d like to explore options, please get in touch.
