Candle Resources’ Bespoke Events enable you to shape one of our events to suit your students, your teachers, your timetable… and your budget.

Just e-mail bespoke@candleconferences.com or telephone us on 0208 133 2241 to discuss your requirements.

1) Prêt-à-Porter

.

A selection of TRIED AND TESTED FOUR HOUR EVENTS which can be run in your school for unlimited numbers of participants. Includes a booklet of full-colour conference resources, extension and follow-up activities, provided as a .pdf for you to print and copy for participating students before the day or distribute securely for use on iPads etc. Usually includes free book(s) for the School library.  Minor changes can be made to Pret a Porter events and accompanying resources by negotiation (e.g. swapping one session, different debate topic) for an additional charge of £100.

.

  • England, Scotland and Wales price £899 (£1299 if other local schools are invited).  Offshore schools may be asked to contribute to transport and accommodation costs.

.

2) Made-to-Measure

.

CONSTRUCT YOUR OWN FOUR HOUR EVENT (to be run in your school for unlimited numbers of participants) which might be based on our “menu” of tried and tested sessions and activities… or might be completely one of a kind! Includes digital resources, lecture-notes or other materials by negotiation, depending on the content of your event.  For obvious commercial reasons, Made to Measure excludes any event designed as a private version of our mainstream Philosophy of Religion, Ethics or GCSE RS events.

.

  • England, Scotland and Wales price £1299 (£1499 if other local schools are invited).  Offshore schools may be asked to contribute to transport and accommodation costs. 

3) Flagship Regional Events

.

A)  If your school is AT LEAST 1HR DRIVE FROM ONE OF THE USUAL VENUES why not apply to host one of our flagship events in your area? If your application is successful, you pay us nothing, we take care of all the bookings and arrangements… and offer a small discount on your first 50 student tickets in return for the use of hall and AV facilities.  We also pay the going rate for visiting teacher refreshments.

.

B)  Alternatively, if your school or college is AT LEAST 1HR DRIVE FROM ONE OF THE USUAL VENUES and if you are willing to take the risk yourself we sometimes agree for you to advertise our event to local schools, manage the bookings and arrange all aspects of the day apart from the sessions… our fee is £1499 for the day and assuming you attract at least 100 students, your school/department stands to make a healthy profit and benefit from a lot of positive publicity.  We may tailor sessions by negotiation in this case, such as to suit SQA Scottish Higher RMPS, WJEC GCSE, CCEA A Level or CIE PreU Philosophy and Theology.

.

C)  If your school or college is WITHIN 1 HOUR’S DRIVE OF A USUAL VENUE BUT HAS VERY LARGE NUMBERS, usually defined as 100+ GCSE or A Level students, this might be the best option for you in any case.  Our usual fee of £1499 divided by 100 students brings the cost of the day well under the usual ticket price, not considering the cost of transport.   We cannot guarantee to accept applications for this sort of event; decisions will be made on a commercial basis and on the undertaking that the events will not be opened to other schools in the area except by written permission from us.  Bespoke events will not feature guest speakers advertised for mainstream events, though sessions and resources will remain the same.   Any refreshments provided to students or teachers or hall-hire costs will be at your expense.
