Costs for DESMOND UK explained

Costs for hosting the DESMOND Programme in the UK

The costs for hosting the DESMOND Programme split into three distinct areas: annual licence fee, Educator fees and resourcesand all are explained more fully below.

1. Annual Licence Fee

General population size x £0.015p = £????

(For example – population of 190,000 x 0.015 = £2850.00)

This is a set figure regardless of how many DESMOND modules you invest in, therefore the more modules you invest in, the more cost effective the Programme becomes.

2. Educator Fees

The fees for training Educators split into 4 areas as described below:

a. Training
