This week SPOCE announce the launch of their new monthly payment plan. The aim of the plan is to make the first-class training and service that they offer accessible to anyone, including those delegates that are just embarking on their careers and on a limited budget.
So, how does it work?
The first thing you need to know is that our new payment plans are interest free. Yes, that is 0% interest, so why wouldn’t you? The monthly payment options are available to anyone choosing a classroom or virtual classroom training course. Delegates choose the course of their choice, whether this is a single course like PRINCE2® Foundation or a combined course like Foundation and Practitioner. Once they have chosen their course they can then contact the SPOCE team who will be happy to run through the payment options with them.
A flexible payment plan designed to suit every delegate
The beauty of this scheme is its flexibility. If delegates wish to spread their payments over a short period of say, 3 months, they can. If they have a more limited budget and wish to lower their payments, they can spread them by anything up to 12 months.
Each payment plan requires an initial deposit of just £199, even for a combined course like a 5-day Foundation and Practitioner. To make it even more flexible, if delegates wish to clear their payments early, then there is no early redemption penalty either. This means that you can significantly lower the cost of your payments. PRINCE2 Foundation classroom for example can now be purchased for as little as £79 per month.*
SPOCE Managing Director Paul Bradley says
“We have seen time and time again where delegates have opted for bargain basement training courses because they are a little on the cheaper side but then their course is continually cancelled, or they turn up to find that the classrooms are overcrowded and inadequate. This isn’t our way at SPOCE. We have a ‘maximum’ of 16 delegates per course, our trainers have an average of 15 years training experience and our classrooms are light airy environments, suitable for the intense study hours that delegates need to get to grips with the approaches.
Some of the courses that we offer are intense and the study environment can greatly affect concentration and overall pass mark. Equally, our virtual classroom option means that candidates can choose their own study environment but with live trainer support.
We know from the research that having a project management qualification is a real game changer on your CV and can significantly improve your salary expectations. If you don't have the funds upfront, this can develop into a 'catch 22' situation. So, with the 0% interest payment plans, we feel we have found a way to make this more of a possibility for people to achieve, sooner rather than later."
So why can’t delegates pay for e-Learning courses monthly?
“In a sense we already have a flexible payment plan for e-Learning. Each e-Learning approach has a ‘Passport Flexi’ option which allows delegates to purchase the e-Learning only and add other costs onto this at a later date, such as exams and course manuals.”
