Catalyst Fees

How to Value a Course or Workshop
We do half-day, one and two-day and the equivalent of 5-day workshops and courses. We accept all offers for tuition. We expect you to ask yourself what you can pay. Your decision will be a valid offer. And, if you need help valuing our workshops and courses in order to decide you can use these gauges to figure out where you fit compared to others:

*:who live on low or fixed-income or are unemployed; students
**: individuals who are employed or who may have grants to pursue education
***Sustainer: agencies and institutions who have the means to pay a commercial rate. Please note that those able to pay on this end of the gauge enable us better to support those paying on the solidarity side.

How to Value our Consultancy Time
Catalyst does popular education consultancy of all kinds including curriculum development, training, train-the-trainer workshops, facilitation, evaluation, and more. For anything that requires training time, piloting workshops, etc. we generally calculate one day of planning to one day of facilitation for events between a half-day and five days (for workshop/course time of more than five days this ratio is negotiable). We expect you to ask yourself what you can pay. Your decision will be a valid offer.

And, if you need help valuing our workshops and courses in order to decide you can use these gauges to figure out where you fit compared to others:

* Solidarity:individuals, voluntary groups, advocacy groups, small non-profit projects with limited means
**Small Non-profit:small non-profits, small co-ops, et al with average means and/or project
*** Large Institution:large non-profits and co-ops, trade unions, educational institutions, public agencies and private sector institutions with the means to pay a competitive commercial rate. Please note that those able to pay on this end of the gauge enable us better to support those paying on the solidarity side.
