How Does It All Work?

Mix and match modules to create an instructional design programme designed specifically around you and your needs.



How Many Modules Can I Choose?

Choose and sequence as many modules as you need and fit them into a suitable timeframe for either the face-to-face classroom or virtual classroom.

Modules vary in length from 1 hour through to a maximum of 2 hours. Please see the module descriptions for the exact length of each module.

Face-to-Face Classroom

For the face-to-face classroom, these are the available blocks of delivery time:

Half day: 3 or 3.5 hours of module time
Three quarter day: 4.5 or 5 hours of module time
Whole day: 6 or 6.5 hours of module time

Virtual Classroom

For the virtual classroom, we have a minimum and maximum number of hours delivered in a given day:
Minimum module time: 1.5 - 2 hours
Recommended maximum: 3.5 - 4 hours
Absolute maximum: 5 hours

All at once or spread the load?

Once you have decided which modules you would like to take, we will work with you to identify a suitable timetable for delivery. 

With face-to-face training, if people are taking more than a day of training they typically opt for delivery on consecutive days.

However, with virtual classroom delivery, it’s perfectly possible to spread sessions over a period of non-consecutive days (or weeks), allowing short breaks between days when sessions are delivered.

Where does the programme run?

For face-to-face delivery, we usually come to you and deliver at your premises. If you have an off-site location you would prefer to use, just let us know.

Please note: if you choose an off-site location, you are wholly responsible for any booking and/or cancellation fees for the venue you are hiring.

For virtual classroom delivery, the sessions are delivered live online in our virtual classroom.

Office building

Even more customisation?

We’ve aimed to make the content of the programme as modular and flexible as possible. However, if you need customisation of a particular module or a topic not covered by existing modules then please let us know.

We have a large bank of modular materials over and above those we use for the standard modules.

So it's likely that if you have a more specialised request, we'll have something ready to use or something that requires only minimal work to prepare it.

More About Pricing...


We offer a 10% discount on the face-to-face classroom rates shown above, if you have a small group (up to a maximum of three) who need a face-to-face in-house course.

If have just one or two people in your organisation who need training why not consider our public or self-study options.


Expenses for face-to-face training

For face-to-face delivery, we re-charge any trainer travel or accommodation expenses to you, at cost. Our instructional design trainers are located in the Home Counties and south Midlands, so expenses will depend on how far we have to travel to reach your premises.

After your programme finishes

We have several follow-up packages, to help you make the transition from training to actual implementation of skills.
These packages are especially valuable for people who will be going on to create e-learning content. See this page for details.

Instructional Design Academy

Once you complete some initial instructional design training with us, you are able to access our exclusive Instructional Design Academy. This provides additional modules that build on what’s covered in the standard programme. You’ll receive details of this at the end of your initial training.
