The Cost of Professional Training in the UK

UK Training Industry Statistics

The Cost of Professional Training in the United Kingdom

When it comes to choosing a training provider or course, Findcourses’ data shows that price is an important consideration for both individuals and organisations.

Although not necessarily a determining factor, the price of a course inevitably affects the decision making process for training buyers. At the same time, it is an important indicator of the state and competitiveness of the market across different training areas.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the data collected from our extensive database of courses shows that the average price per training day of courses in technical areas like Finance and Oil & Gas is significantly higher than that of courses in the softer disciplines.

The numbers also reveal that online courses continue to be the most cost-effective option, with professional IT courses delivered by online learning providing savings of up to 76% with respect to public courses. This data was taken from the 2015 UK Training Report.
