Simplifying the process

Our courses are designed and delivered by professionals who know exactly what it is like to go through the adjustment and learning curve to successfully move into self employed freelancing and also importantly, what to do to keep ahead of the game. We offer workspace based or online training and we only hold sessions for small groups or as private 1-to-1s.

Starting Super Fact # 1 - paying for your own formal training will help you reduce your tax bill.

Empowering you to move into a portfolio career

Our course material is based on real world experiences and current industry thinking to help you gain the 'insider track' and added confidence to navigate and make the transition process in a way that works for you. We offer an interesting, enjoyable, value add outcome focused experience for all our attendees. Our approach is industry neutral, but we do have significant management and technical experience relating to different job sectors. We do not assess individual skills and capabilities but further consultation is available outside our standard agenda if additional support is required.

Who should attend Contractor Transition training?

Those who have been in long term employment and looking to move into self employment or those who want to move into contracting as a first option. It is assumed that you will not have a working knowledge of the transition process, the pitfalls and current legislation. No pre-course work is required but we will just ask you to complete a very simple and secure online questionnaire to inform any pre-course discussions and course planning.

Our courses consist of a day long structured agenda to concentrate logically on running through the end to end process of exactly what you will need to do to transition into freelancing and this is supported by easy to consume slides. At the end of the day, all learning outcomes will be summarised and there will be an opportunity to cover any questions. 

What’s included?

  • A complete days training
  • Notepad, pen and summary slides for notes
  • A buffet lunch with drinks throughout the day
  • Optional end of day networking session 
  • A personalised follow up 1 hour session to run through any questions and discuss any points you may have after the session. 
 
Our trainer led courses will be held at a designated professional conference space to consider distance for all participating delegates and access to transport links. Course will also be run online using well known conference tools. If a personal one-to-one is preferred, this can easily be arranged anywhere in the UK and further afield with prior agreement.

 

Both morning and afternoon sessions will contain many examples of current thinking and proven best practice to support getting things right first time whilst avoiding costly pitfalls and commonly made mistakes. We call this 'the inside track' and is detail you are not likely to receive personally or in general advice. Our training is interactive and engaging and is designed not to be industry specific.
