We are increasing the prices of our scheduled courses
And not before time, perhaps (although if you're reading this as one of our valued clients, you probably won't agree). Here's the history of our prices for our flagship two-day Introduction to SQL course for London, Manchester and online training:
The online figures on the right only go back to 2019, which for some strange reason was when we decided to offer online courses!
This shows that we've rarely increased our prices, and they haven't kept up with inflation:
According to the Bank of England inflation calculator, prices have risen by 42% since 2008, which would give a cost for our SQL course of £845 today (the true price per place is £795 for London, £695 for Manchester and £595 online).
We've decided therefore to increase most of our prices (and actually reduce a couple) to make them more coherent. Our new prices in pounds from 1st March 2022 for places on scheduled courses will be as follows:
|Type of course||Days||Online||Manchester||London|
|Excel (basic, intermediate and advanced)||1||395||550||695|
|Standard (most introductory courses)||2||695||850||995|
|Advanced (including DAX, SSAS and Excel Modelling)||2||795||950||1095|
These prices reflect that our costs are lowest for online training (despite the far greater amount of admin involved), and highest for courses in London - not surprisingly.
If you've already booked (or are in the act of booking) a course place, we will honour our pre-increase prices.
