Training delivery contracts


We are a small company starting out on delivering half day training to both the private and public sectors.

I would appreciate some advice on what needs to be included in contracts with those organisations we will be delivering to.

Are there any examples or templates out there?

  1. Contracts
    Hi Clare,

    Here are a couple of things you can consider:

    Legal – who is covering the event in terms of public liability? You need to have insurance anyway but it may be a lot easier on your time if the client agrees to handle any claims?

    So clarify what you are covering and what the client is covering.

    Payment; All of my direct clients paid me 50% of the fee once a date was agreed. This was never questioned and if they cancelled I kept the fee and used it towards the re-booked event providing a beneficial (incentive for re-booking with me).

    Another contract item is payment terms. Even with the large companies who have payment terms of 60 or 90 days I always managed to get paid within 15 days (my own terms).

    This is done by prior written agreement with the named manager you are dealing with. In all cases these managers could get around the terms if they wanted to and it cost them nothing extra.

    I even did an event for a purchasing department and got then to agree to this arrangement!

    I am sure you will get lots of other ideas as well.

    Good luck.


  2. terms and conditions?
    Many thanks for that Nick – especially for the advice and experience on payment – which seems to have sparked off interest.
    I didn’t actually get more replies. Maybe I should have asked about TERMS AND CONDITIONS?
    All the best

  3. Contracts & T&C..
    Hi Clare
    Any contracts or T&C’s that you have should be checked by an appropriate solicitor.

    I have some sample contracts and T&C in the resources section of my web site – or you can try Have a look in the downloads section.

    Remember these contracts or T&C’s need to be in place before you do any work for them, or you will need to notify them of the changes to your working practise.
