On-Demand Courses

We offer a wide range of property development topics suitable for affordable housing providers – and others – whether in New Business teams, Delivery teams and / or Regeneration teams. Some of these courses feature in our Open Courses programme, and others are run on-demand. This may be in-house, or an un-programmed open course, responding to your votes. You can find out more about our on-demand courses here.

 

In-house

In-house can be the most cost-effective solution for you where you have 6 or more people wishing to attend the same course.  Run in the convenience of your own offices, an additional advantage is that it is more private, perhaps allowing more open discussion of issues that would be appropriate in an Open Course.

In-house course fees vary depending upon the level of the course (introductory, intermediate etc) and the number of people attending.  A course fee the matrix is at the bottom of this webpage.

To arrange an in-house course, please e-mail training@hatc.co.uk or call us on (01943) 604259.

PLEASE NOTE 1: The in-house training figures are course fees only. Expenses and VAT are in addition.

PLEASE NOTE 2: We try to ensure that in-house course material meets your particular requirements. We can tailor course content without charge if it means using already-prepared material from other courses. However, if you require new material to be authored, we will confirm the cost of that tailoring, as part of our quote for you.

PLEASE NOTE 3: We are happy to absorb travelling time of approximately 1 hour each way, but will need to charge if the travelling time encroaches into working time. Again, we will identify this cost in our quote, so that the position is clear before you decide whether to commission us.

PLEASE NOTE 4: If you don’t have enough in-house people to make an On-Demand course cost-effective, we are happy to run a mixed On-Demand / Open course in your offices for you, to which other local colleagues can be invited. It reduces your costs significantly. If this idea is appealing, please ask for a quote.

We are in the process of publishing all course details on our website. In the mean time please contact us for further information.
