Establishing a bank of trainers


I have been tasked to look at the possibility of setting up a bank of freelance IT trainers in our rural area to provide one-to-one training to micro business. I wonder if anyone has investigated or has knowledge of the legal structure, insurance issues etc of a similar organisation or can advise where to go for advice.

  1. Not too complicated
    I have extensive experience of the IT arena and have done a number of years freelancing. I now provide training services as part of my business, including IT training.

    In my experience this is not too complicated. In general the following should suffice. The trainers should sign a Non Disclosure Agreement in respect to the businesses they will be involved in. You should have a contract with each trainer covering all the standard stuff such as terms of employment, intellectual property rights etc. Depending on your own insurance position, you might want to take on only trainers who have professional indemnity insurance.
    This is all fairly routine in the IT industry. Probably the trickiest part is sourcing the right individuals, the good ones should come pre-prepared for the above.

  2. Group of freelancers
    I have interpreted your question as meaning a group where each individual remains as a freelancer rather than an employee? We have advised a number of training companies who have sought this arrangement on specific projects and who continue to draw on the bank whenever training crops up.

    We can assist with the agreements and the set up of such a group from the legal perpective. Please email further.
