The training is residential: accommodation is offered at cost price by the Old Abbey itself or in Het Rustpunt. If you live nearby, you can sleep at home, but be aware that the process will continue into the evenings with various activities as well as preparation for roles you might have stepped up for on the next day.


How much:
It is our wish that this training be accessible to all, regardless of your financial situation.
We have taken account of the following factors in setting our prices:

  • we know the market for business training, and are offering a very competitive price in that context.
  • we are aware that NGOs, local authorities and micro-firms work with very small budgets.
  • we understand that individuals who enrol might be juggling with a low monthly income.

We leave it to you and your conscience to choose which financial contribution you can make. If our prices are still too steep for you and you want to participate, come and talk to us about it! Together we will find a solution. We operate on the principle of ‘give what you can and a little bit more’.

Prices include participation in the full training, the workbook, overnight stay and breakfast, lunch and dinner; coffee, tea and snacks in the breaks.
