Some tips from us….

Often, a trainer may choose a venue because it appears cheap in comparison to others, only to realise once it’s too late that a lot of the facilities and services they need are charged as ‘extras’. This can quickly increase the costs. We will provide you with a proposal that will clearly outline what is included in the rate quoted to you.

Remember location can also affect the price, so it can be worth widening your search area. Being more flexible on your chosen location can be more cost effective.

We recommend that you have a firm and realistic budget in mind when you get in touch with us. Remember the choice of venue you book will reflect in the delegates’ perception of your training event and company, so it is important to get it right!

Why Book an External Training Venue?

Training venues are situated in great locations with easy access to all transport networks. Whether travelling by car, train or even by air, they can be easily reached and make them a good option, guaranteeing a positive uptake for any event.

Dedicated training centres are exclusively designed to offer training spaces to cater for all corporate and business needs without any external distractions away from the workplace.

Predominantly, training venues are a dedicated space for corporate companies to create a focused working and training environment. These spaces can also be used for all types of events including workshops, board meetings, panel meetings, examinations, interviews and much more.

What Can a Training Centre Provide Me?

  • The most up-to-date technology including high speed Wi-Fi essential for on line learning
  • Natural daylight creating a light and bright atmosphere (black-out options if required)
  • Flexibility – some training centres will also offer flexible cancellation policies to fit in with your training course deadlines.
  • Functional event spaces
  • Competitive pricing and flexible packages
  • Focused service & amenities
  • Easy accessibility
  • Experienced staff
  • Dedicated IT support
  • Some training centres also offer dedicated IT training rooms already set up with PCs

Training Room Layouts

The room layout is important to achieve any event objective so training rooms have the flexibility to be anything from a basic boardroom set up to a more informal pod seating or lounge layout.


Experienced technicians and other staff members are available on site to assist trainers with any specific requirements/technical issues leading up to and on the event day itself including pre-loading software onto their dedicated PCs. This will mean that the delegates have a smooth training experienc

A tip from us….

If your course requires lots of interaction with delegates then a cabaret style set-up is best. This allows delegates to be seated around groups of tables.

If you need your delegates to concentrate and take notes or work on laptops, then a classroom style (rows of tables with chairs) would be best.

Alternatively, if the trainer is looking to interact with the delegates and the group is not too large then a U-Shape set up would be ideal.

Some trainers prefer no tables at all, so very informal with just the delegates seating in rows of chairs – perhaps in a semi circle.

Many Training Centres now offer hybrid training spaces.

This can be whereby the trainer is the only person in the room presenting and all attendees dial in remotely or alternatively some trainees are physically present in the training room itself with the trainer, whilst others remote dial-in.

Value for money is key, especially now in these challenging times! Sticking to a budget and knowing exactly what you are getting for your money is vital for companies to be able to continue hosting these types of events. Training centres more often than not, offer all -inclusive price packaging to include all of your training and technical requirements so there are no hidden costs or surprises on the event day or at the final invoice stage.

Venues will work closely with clients to ensure menu choices are created and designed to reflect company values and specific requirements.

If a dedicated training centre isn’t suitable for your event then DeSouza Associates also work closely with conference & management training centres across the UK in order to give you a choice of venue options offering the best solution for your training needs.
