The cost of pre-designed courses delivered in-house to non-training and non-educational organisations, within the United Kingdom is modest, at
four thousand Pounds (£5,000.00)
per day (depending on the type of
course), based on a maximum of 10 delegates. A eight hundred pounds
(£800.00) per day surcharge is levied for each additional delegate in
attendance. No other costs are involved; No travel expenses claim; No subsistence costs, etc. However, an additional
twenty five percent (25%) will be levied on courses delivered outside the UK, to cover the cost of travel and accommodation, etc. These costs include all paper-based materials used, such as course guides, course supplements,
Awards - Postgraduate Diploma, Diploma – Postgraduate, or Certificate of Attendance and Participation. Some organisational resources may be required for use on the courses. These include CD and DVD Players, Data Projectors,
Television Sets, Projection Screens and chart. These requirements are simply to facilitate lighter travelling and will be provided by the consultant, where they are either unavailable or inaccessible in the training room.
The cost of seminars or public courses,
with certain exceptions, is currently based on one thousand Pounds (£1,000.00) per delegate per day. Therefore, a five-day course costs Five
Thousand Pounds (GB£5,000.00)
The costs of Postgraduate Diploma
Programmes, which are of a minimum of
three month’s duration, are often discounted to encourage the take-up of the complete
Programme, which is a faster route than the studying of individual modules, on an accumulative basis.
V.A.T. (Government Tax) does not apply to Corporate Sponsored Individuals,
taking Programmes or Courses in any location - within or outside the UK.
It applies only to Individuals and Corporations based in the UK and to
Non-UK Individual Residents taking courses in the UK.
All costs are reviewed periodically and might result in
The cost of general and specific consultancy services varies and is determined by the
Operational Director, following the initial contact and subsequent entry. It is based on specific formula, which takes account of:
The nature of the problem and urgency of the case
The number of key personnel who will be involved
The estimated length of time involved
The technical administrative support that will be required
Each Training Pack includes all relevant training materials including an Electronic Presentation Disc (CD/DVD),
Flash Memory or Memory Card, Course Guide and Course Supplement. The licence facilitates multi-site reproduction and usage of the materials, in their original or adapted format - whenever or wherever the organisation or public sector department wishes, within its establishment. Customised packs are organisation-specific and are owned by the client organisation, with copyright being owned by HRODC Postgraduate Training Institute. Pre-designed training packs are available for all listed courses.
Training packs incorporate:
Electronic Presentation Disc (CD/DVD)
Course Guides, with Delegate Activities and Evaluation Exercises
The cost of pre-designed training packs is based on the duration of the course, at three thousand Pounds (GB£3,000.00) per day. A Training Pack for a
five-day course, therefore, costs fifteen thousand Pounds (GB£15,000.00). Power Point Electronic Presentations – without the additional materials such as Course Guides and Course Supplements – costs
two thousand Pounds (GB£2,000.00) for each day of the course.
The cost of Customised Training Packs takes development time into account. The cost, therefore, represents standard cost plus a reflection of the cost of the time that it takes to develop the material. However, the cost of pre-designed Training Packs is usually five thousand Pounds (GB£5,000.00) for each day of the course. Therefore, the cost of a
five-day customised course will be twenty five thousand Pounds (GB25,000.00).
Contract Terms and Conditions
This Clause is in line with our Normal Service Contract.
HRODC Postgraduate Training Institute is hereafter referred to
as the 1st Party, and the Client, Delegate or Student
will be hereinafter referred to as the 2nd Party.
This Clause Spells out the Responsibilities and Obligations of
the 1st Party and 2nd Party, Respectively,
in the Facilitation and Availing of the Facilitation of the
Specified Service Provision.
2nd Party Cancellations
2nd Party Cancellations of Consultancy Service must be
made in writing (by fax, e-mail or post) but may be subject to a surcharge.
If the 1st Party receives a notice of cancellation by 29 days
before the seminar or course is scheduled to take place, or consultancy
activity is scheduled to begin, a registration fee and any additional
administrative costs are payable by the 2nd Party, to the 1st
Party. In the case of courses or seminars, a five hundred Pounds (£500.00)
registration fee per delegate is payable. A 10% administration fee is
payable for consultancy or in-house training, based on the total cost of
these activities. If cancellation notice is received between 28 and 15 days
before, a charge of 50% surcharge is payable for Training and 20% for
On-Site Consultancy Activity.
Any Cancellation received less than 15 days before the seminar,
or consultancy activity, will incur the full or 100% of the established
cost. There can be no cancellation of research paper orders. Pre-designed
training packs cannot be cancelled, once they have been dispatched. The 50%
payment due on order of customised training packs cannot be redeemed, the 1st
Party holding this amount in forfeit, following the breach of contract by
the 2nd Party. Additional payments that are due will be based on
a sliding scale from expected delivery date to the date of cancellation.
Where the 2nd Party Cancellation of Consultancy
Service occurs and airfares and, or, hotel accommodation are/ is involved,
the 2nd Party shall be liable for the payment of the unredeemable
elements - whole or part - of the amount paid or due to be paid for these
2nd Party Cancellation Due To Extenuating Circumstances
a 2nd Party Recipient experiences extenuating circumstances, such
as Flight Delay or Cancellation, Personal or Family Tragedy, the production
of the relevant documentary evidence will result in the issuance of a Credit
Note for the remaining amount, after the application of a five hundred
Pounds (£500.00) administration charge per recipient. The Credit Note will
be applicable towards the cost of a similar or alternative scheduled course
and will have a Validity of ninety (90) days and is 'Un-cashable'.
2nd Party Entry Visa Denial
Where the Entry Visa of the 2nd Party to enter a
particular country has been denied, the 1st Party shall relocate
the consultancy activity in another country, to meet the scheduled delivery
date or as soon afterwards as possible. The most important factor in this
alternative location, is the securing of at least one additional recipient –
as an economic measure. After 3 Visa Denials to different Countries or
Regions (e.g. Europe), arrangement will be made to deliver the consultancy
service in the Domicile of the 2nd Party. Where an alternative
location has to be used, the 2nd Party will make no additional
payments, with the 1st Party meeting all additional expenses.
Consultancy Fees in the UK is generally 25% less that pertains to
delivery outside the UK. Therefore, in the event of relocation from our UK
Base, the 2nd Party will pay the additional fee cost, in line
with Delivery Cost outside the UK.
Party's Postponement of Consultancy Activities
While maximum efforts are made to deliver all the Consultancy
Activities as scheduled, there might be occasions where postponement might
be necessary. The 1st Party, therefore, exercises the right to postpone
Consultancy Activities, where it deems it uneconomic or logistically
unfeasible to hold them. The reasons might relate to problems with venue
availability, immigration restriction or the unavailability of Qualified
Consultants. Where postponements are unavoidable, the 2nd Party will be
asked to avail of the Consultancy Activity rescheduled for the same or
alternative location, nationally or internationally. While 1st Party will
make all efforts to ensure that the 2nd Party is notified of any
postponement as well in advance as possible, there might be occasions where
a short notice will have to be given. It is in order to avoid the associated
inconvenience, therefore, that the 2nd Party is asked to provide the 1st
Party with in-country, roaming and travel mobile phone numbers, as early as
these are known, so as to avert any associated inconvenience.
of postponement of in-house Consultancy Activities will be given at least
one week before they are scheduled to take place but a shorter periods of
notices might be given in exceptional circumstances. Where postponement of
these activities is necessary, the 1st Party and 2nd
Party will decide on a mutually convenient rescheduled date.
Service Fee, Payment, and Protocol

Activity and agreement with the costs, fixed or negotiated, established by
the 1st Party, is reflected in the associated Invoice,
representing a commitment to pay the stipulated amount for the services of
the 1st Party.
The 2nd Party is expected to settle the stipulated fee,
represented in the associated Invoice, at least five (5) weeks in advance of
the Contracted Consultancy Activity. Exception is made for engagements

this case, Invoice settlement will be expected at the earliest possible date
before the commencement of the Consultancy Activity. Specific Payment

Modern Protocol would suggest that where the Consultancy Activity
is in-house or on-site the 2nd Party affords the 1st
Party the honour of the provision of refreshment and a hot lunch, while in
the 'Care' of the 2nd party. These courtesies will be
