HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL?

If we are asked to deliver training, we always view that as an opportunity to make a difference to a child so we try extremely hard to go wherever the need is. We are based in Herefordshire and most of our work is local  but we travel across the UK and abroad if required. We try to keep our travel and overnight costs as low as possible for you.

Car mileage is 40p a mile, train and flight fares we try to get the cheapest possible. Hotels we look for budget or low cost hotels on a flexi rate.

We only ever charge what it costs us. If this is not feasible for you, please consider purchasing our online workshops for teaching staff.

HOW MANY CAN ATTEND?

All staff from one school, including admin staff, lunchtime supervisors and especially head teachers. Schools of 15 staff or less are welcome to join with another small school to share the cost. If you are booking as a Multi Academy Trust or an Outreach Base for all of your schools, then numbers are limited to 40.

HOW DO WE BOOK?

With no obligational at all, it’s best to call Cathy directly so she can chat your training requirements over with you. Her direct number is 07736000979 or email her cathy@dyspraxia-ed.co.uk For schools, charities and organisations we usually invoice after we have delivered the training.

WHAT IF WE NEED TO CANCEL?

Things happen, OFSTED calls! We understand if you need to cancel and are usually able to reschedule for genuine reasons. We don’t usually charge cancellation charges unless we have already travelled or are unable to recoup travel costs ourselves in which case we will ask you to reimburse us so our charity is not out of pocket. To date we have never cancelled a training session but if we should ever need to, we will always try to reschedule for you.
