CORPORATE AND PUBLIC SECTOR APPLICATIONS

We are happy to receive applications from companies and public sector bodies for their staff.

However, we insist on full payment before course materials are issued. We know that it has become normal practice for corporate and public sector customers to delay payment as long as possible - this is unfair to small businesses like us.

It is also unfair to the delegates who are waiting to start their courses as part of their professional development, and in some cases for vital personal skills development and stress management.

Delegates who are forced to wait for up to several months before starting their courses may be frustrated and demotivated, and starting the course in a mood that is not conducive to study success. They may resent the bureaucracy that delays payment of their fees. We have found that company and public sector delegates have far higher non-completion rates than students who pay for courses themselves.

We are seriously considering not accepting commercial and public sector applications altogether, or else charging higher rates for that sector. In the meantime, non-payers and very late payers will have applications on behalf of further delegates refused.

Why don't we simply let the students start the course and wait for payment? Because some employers just won't pay, and others will only pay after much chasing, often involving several staff members as nobody takes responsibility for ensuring we are paid. That adds to our costs and can make it unprofitable to run the course.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to Apply for our Courses


Application for most courses is simple.  Just complete and email us the application form which you can get via the links below.  You don't need to send anything else with the form. Don't send any money yet. We will check it, and if we accept the application, we will contact you to confirm the fees. Then when we receive the payment you can start your studies.

 

PLEASE SEND THE FORM ONLY WHEN YOU ARE READY AND ABLE TO START AND PAY THE FEES IN FULL.

 

A MINORITY OF PEOPLE SEND US FORMS BUT ARE UNABLE TO PAY. TO SAVE YOUR OWN TIME AND OURS, ENSURE THAT YOU ARE REALLY READY TO START NOW.

 

WE DO NOT HOLD PLACES IN ADVANCE.   YOU CAN START AT ANY TIME OF YEAR.

Paying your fees

If you wish to pay on-line by PayPal (by credit card or direct from your bank), we will send you a PayPal invoice by email when we receive your application.  See www.paypal.co.uk or www.paypal.com for details of how to open a FREE PayPal account.  You don't need a PayPal account to send us smaller amounts if we invoice you on-line.

 

GOOGLE CHECKOUT

 

This payment method is no longer available.

 

UK CHEQUE

 

If you are sending us a cheque, send it (payable to KADMON) by post with your application form.
(NB - Our bank account is still in our old name so we need cheques payable to "Kadmon")

You can pay cash into a branch of our bank (in UK only - including Channel Islands). We will give you the bank details. Do not send cash by post. Do not go to our London address to pay in person, as cash will not be accepted there.

If you would like to make a bank transfer please ask us for our bank details.  We may need to charge extra for bank costs if you send us money in currencies other than Pounds Sterling or US Dollars or if you are in certain countries.

We regret that we no longer offer Payment Plans

 

UK College of Holistic Training is a small private educational business and like many other businesses in recent years, we have been challenged by the economic situation and this has led us to make some necessary changes.

 

The changes we are making are twofold:  (a) reducing our administration costs and overheads wherever possible and (b) introducing and developing new courses.

 

One if the biggest drains on our resources has been the operation of payment plans, which led to extra time spent answering queries, negotiating, chasing late  payments, and extra accounting time. All this extra work with reduced and uncertain cash flow is now unsustainable and has prevented us from concentrating on course development as much as we would wish.

 

We have therefore decided not to offer payment plans of any kind for new enrolments. This applies both to new and existing students. Already, most of our students have been paying in full, and those who have not have had a disproportionate effect on our workflow and often created more work than several full-paying students combined. 

 

Of course we know that some of our competitors offer payment plans - but they tend to be high-volume operators that operate on very low profit margins, and they spend huge amounts on advertising.  The textbook-based model which have used for most of our own courses has a dedicated following with many students returning for further courses.

 

It is still possible for most people to spread payments for a course, by paying us via PayPal and using a credit card. Alternatively, wait until you can afford the fee and then apply. We realise that this policy might make some students go elsewhere, but we believe we will make up for any shortfall by continuing to offer innovative courses not easily available by distance learning, as well as more popular subjects.

 

We know that some people who would like to do our courses are on low incomes and are struggling. However, we do not receive any financial aid or funding and we have stayed away from government funding schemes in order to remain fully in control of the way we do business and the courses we offer, without being strangled by red tape. We are not bankers or moneylenders. Payment plans are essentially interest-free credit. We are not in the banking or lending business, we are in the course business and we ask you to respect that. We are not a substitute for your credit cards, savings or or other ways of budgeting.

 

We are offering a service for which we need to be paid promptly in order to remain in business ourselves as we have done for almost 20 years. That is a simple reality. We need to cut out unnecessary work and payment delays in order to thrive.  We hope that serious applicants will respect our stance, and we look forward to welcoming many of you to various exciting new courses over the coming years.
