This article presents a comparison between freelance and in-house trainers. Although freelancers earn more per teaching day, the cost to the training provider is probably not very different to that for full-time employees, once national insurance, overheads, personal development and other costs are taken into account. Commercial providers should be ensuring consistency and continuity of service, and if one employs freelancer trainers directly, that task will be down to him. The article concludes that it is not a question of whether permanent trainers are better than freelancers, or vice-versa, but rather that both are needed to provide good cost-effective training to customers. INSET: THE PANELIST LINE-UP.
