Going online to teach has brought an amazing international dimension to our courses. We have always loved travelling and meeting people from various cultures but as always, money has been a barrier for many.
Since the start of Slingababy, we have been committed to making our courses affordable and to facilitate spreading costs.
Despite our efforts, finances are varying so much internationally and we are just out of budgets for some countries.
Recently we were contacted regarding scholarships and this led us to look into how we could find solutions to make it possible for everyone to get to our teachings.
We are so pleased to bring our solution forward and we are hoping it will help people from all over the world to access our courses.
We have decided to offer a pro-rata system per country depending on the average salary for this country compared to the UK for all our remote and online courses.
Any country with an average salary equal or above to the UK average salary will pay our full prices (£575 for consultancy, £100 for peer support, £100 for feeding and carrying advocacy).
Any country with an average salary which is lower to the UK average salary will pay pro rata.
India which has an average salary of 10% of that in the UK will pay 10% of our course fees so £57.50 for consultancy, £10 for peer support, £10 for feeding and carrying advocacy.
Greece could access our courses for £230 for consultancy, £40 for peer support, £40 for feeding and carrying advocacy.
We would still offer our payment plan options to spread the costs.
As you may have guessed this is quite a gamble as our overheads in the UK are still high. We are therefore also launching a campaign to support Slingababy’s commitment to spreading its message of love through “buy me a coffee” https://www.buymeacoffee.com/Slingababy You can support us as a one-off or as a monthly membership.
So how do you find out, the price for your country? Just get in touch and we will do the maths! We are working on a table with most countries’ prices and have already got a few in.
Wishing you a wonderful European Babywearing Week and we’re hoping to hear from you soon!
