I did an adult ed PGCE a couple of years ago. I teach functional skills English a couple of days a week, but have recently written and delivered an evening workshop for parents, teaching them the grammar terminology their children are learning in primary school.
It went pretty well, and now a school has contacted me directly asking if they could run my course! And asking me what I'd charge. This is of course excellent, but I really have no idea what to ask for. Any ideas?
Hi op don't undercharge. Good trsiners are worth their weight in gold. Putting together and delivering a workshop is hard work - I put together and delivered a three hour workshop on attitudes and behaviours in the work place which I had to deliver to fellow staff.
My trainer who trained us to do this charged £1000 a day!!! 😱😱😱😱😱😱
Turns out they want me to deliver it, too. I've done the legwork of creating the course, and would want the charge to reflect that too! Would £200 be about right? I've really no idea... I've asked the school for a ballpark budget figure.
There is a slight difference between train the trainer training and training individuals. First, you need to decide if you are charging a fixed fee or per delegate. How long is the training? Can you use the school premises to host for free? (what potential expenses may you have) Are there handouts and photocopying costs? Personally, if the school is asking and selling places on it needs to be cheap enough they can make a markup and profit but not so cheap you're giving away knowledge
I think you are underpricing a bit; as a pp has said, training fees are v costly in the corporate sector. I always used to price jobs based on £75 per hour of work involved, for anything less than a full day (which cost £4-500). This was in 2000; I know education is less lucrative and that freelance rates have come down, but your time, knowledge and experience has a price.
