Hosting Training at Your Own Venue

If you have a large team who are unable to travel to Wadebridge, Cornwall, you may be interested in hosting Intentional Health coach training at your own church.  

We can’t always guarantee that this will be possible, but where we can we will do all we can to accommodate this.

It is also easier to do this if you are able to find 2-3 churches in the same area who would like to train together.

Usual costs of hosting your own training

Travel The cost of our trainers coming to you, instead of your team coming to Wadebridge, Cornwall. This is a return cost of £0.45 per mile from our Cornwall office & your training venue. (We work this out using Google Maps to calculate the total return milage from our office at PL27 7DS to your training venue x £0.45p).

Accommodation for 3-4 nights (The trainer(s) would need to arrive and stay the night before training begins). We are happy to be hosted in a hotel, Travelodge or Premier Inn type accommodation.  

Approx £150-£200 for Refreshments/Catering for 3 days training for the trainer(s) and all delegates. You will need to provide lunch, refreshments and snacks to keep us all energised. (These costs are only a rough guide, you may want to make your own refreshments!)

To enable us host a great training experience, we will also need you to provide for the following requirements:

Premises

  • A clean bright airy room (it will be a long 3 days!) with enough tables for everyone to sit comfortably with an open A4 file

  • Access to a large TV/projector with sound and a table at the front near the TV/projector

  • Access to a flip chart with paper and pens (We can bring these if necessary)

  • Access to toilets and drinking water

  • Access to plug sockets

  • It might be helpful to have access to wifi, but this is not essential.

  • Parking for trainer(s) and volunteers (or details of places to park locally)

Refreshments

  • Access to jugs/bottles or fresh running tap water is essential.

  • Tea/Coffee on arrival and during break times - it would be helpful to have these available throughout the day

  • Healthy lunch option provided for each of the volunteers training and for the trainers for all 3 days. (Remember to check for allergies/dietary requirements before arranging lunch/refreshments)

  • It is helpful to have snacks (eg grapes, pretzels, fresh fruit, flapjacks, breadsticks, baked crisps) that people can munch on throughout the day, when energy levels drop.

Access to Venue Before Training Begins

Please let us know what time we can get into the venue to set up. It would be helpful for the trainer(s) to be able to arrive at least an hour before we begin training on Day 1 to set up, with time for coffee on arrival for Registration.

Training Timings

We usually invite those who are training to arrive for 9:15am coffee registration in time for a 9:30am start. We normally aim to take a break for Lunch around 12:30pm and Tea/Coffee around 10:45am and 2:45pm, however these timings are flexible as the group needs.

We aim to be finished around 5.00pm on Day 1 and Day 2. We will aim to finish slightly earlier on Day 3, (usually between 3-4pm) but please allow some margin here, in case there are any questions or anything that needs going over again.

Additional Space Requirements

Our training includes some activities that require getting up and moving about a little, but we won't need a huge space and will be able to adapt. If there is room for the tables and another space about the same size, that would be helpful.

It might be helpful to have a separate area for lunch and breaks, just to avoid cabin fever and break up the day a little! But again, we can be flexible and are happy to work with whatever is available.

Volunteer Application Forms

Also, each volunteer will need to complete their own application form, information about their testimony and details of activities available in their local area, prior to training.  

This can be completed online using the following link: https://www.intentionalhealth.uk/coach-application-form/
