Our pilot courses are free (including food and accommodation) as they are being trialled ahead of full launch and include evaluation via surveys and follow up calls from our own team and Worcester University.

*From September 2018 to June 2019, our established courses will cost £250 per person. This is an introductory price, as the courses are undergoing continued evaluation by Worcester University, via paper surveys and follow-up calls.

*From September 2018, if two people wish to attend together and share a room, each person will receive a discount of £50.

From July 2019 our courses will cost £350 per person.

Current payment methods are cheque and bank transfer. Please confirm your payment method with the team when you finalise your booking. Full payment is required for courses 6 weeks before the course date.

To reserve your place for courses over 6 weeks away, £50 non-refundable deposit is required with the balance due 6 weeks before the course date.

Overall it costs our charity £650 per person to provide the course however we only ask for a contribution of £350 to enable as many people as possible to attend. If you would like to attend but need alternative payment options or to discuss eligibility for a bursary, please discuss with our team by telephone on 0790 909 0987 or email support@thersas.org.uk
