Trainer rates survey


The new TrainerBase Survey is out on trainer rates - do have a go, the more that contribute the better data we will all have. It is open to all from freelance trainers selling their services to procurement folk. It is at
I have no vested interest in the survey, but I am interested in the results. And I am particularly interested in the following questions: is the credit crunch hitting rates, and, if so, where is it hitting hardest?

    I would have responded but was immediately put off by the first question which reads like and advert and is irrelevant to the issue the survey is aiming to illuminate?

    What is your status in relation to the TrainerBase web site? *

  2. Trainer rates
    I have no connection at all with TrainerBase. Though I have spoking with Peter Mayes, who runs it, with regard to the survey.
    My interest is purely professional – I work a lot with Heads of L&D and a common area of discussion is the buying of L&D services (both the process and the rates). There are very few good surveys on training spend – I have studied most of them in great depth and am increasing convinced that the data is close to worthless. The TrainerBase survey is coming at this from a different perspective but, if enough people contribute, I hope the results will add at least one more piece to the jigsaw.
    My additional question about whether the credit crunch is hitting rates is connected to the above but is also about keeping in touch with market trends. I work for the National School of Government and we sell our services to clients, so it is useful to know about changes in spending patterns. I guess others who sell their services might be interested in this too.
    I hope that dispels any suspicions you might have that there is any other motive behind this. It is a genuine enquiry.

    Thanks Graham,

    I made no reference to your involvement and that wasn’t the thrust of my gripe.
    I quoted the question that asks your status, it wasn’t me enquiring about your connection.
    I did find the first question out of place and unnecessary.

  4. Unnecessary for who

    You might think it unnecessary but we (as a Trade Association) need it for our analysis.
