The registered VAT number for Trainer Bubble Ltd. is GB 161 2412 50. This number will appear on all sales receipts and invoices that we issue.
Why do you charge VAT on some products, but not others?
As of 1st May 2020 the HMRC brought in legislation to make e-publications zero rated. This zero rated status applies to our training course materials, which are considered e-publications and are supplied electronically. This same status does not apply to e-learning content or videos, which are not considered ‘e-publications’. This leaves us with a peculiar situation, whereby we apply VAT to some of our products, but others are zero rated. We have taken care of this calculation on our website and applied VAT according to legislation, so you should be able to identify clearly when you are paying VAT or not.
Overseas clients should not be charged VAT at all and this calculation is also taken care of by our website.
What if I change my mind after I have ordered?
The team at Trainer Bubble are very careful to list the content and objectives of each course in precise detail in order for you to be sure that what you see is what you get. However, should you have any reason to be dissatisfied, please contact the sales team. We will be happy to discuss your individual case.

Why are you called Trainer Bubble?
Andrew Wood, our MD says: “The name came from a conversation/debate I had with a participant on one of my courses many years ago in which he said to me, ‘It’s alright for you *bleeping* trainers, you all live in a bubble!’ This statement always stuck with me and reminded me to remain objective and link learning to business needs. When I set up the business I decided to pay homage to the guy (whose name I sadly forget) and create a ‘bubble’ for trainers, hence, Trainer Bubble.”

Questions about our Training Course Materials...
What will I receive when I purchase your training course materials?
You will receive everything you need to run a stand-alone training session with the minimum of effort. Our training resources have been carefully developed to ensure you can deliver your course in the relaxed knowledge that your attention is focused on the participant learning requirements rather than the course itself.
Unless otherwise stated, you are sent the following training course materials:
Trainers Notes – A very detailed and concise explanation of what you should do during the session, complete with the comments you should make and notes on what to do during activities etc. This is a very detailed step-by-step way of training. View training material samples on each individual training course product page by clicking on the sample images.
Workbook – This is a place for participants to add their action plans and learning, whilst also containing information about the course content and a place to work on exercises and activities
Session Plan – Details what is included in the course, so participants have complete awareness and the trainer can track course progress
PowerPoint Slides – All slides necessary to run the course. Please note: Our materials are not ‘Death by PowerPoint’. The major content is in the Trainers Notes and all courses have been designed to be interactive rather than presentational
Activities/Exercises – A detailed explanation of the activities/exercises used to consolidate learning (these are included in the trainers notes)
Pre-course Preparation – Advice on how to print out the slides in ‘note’ format to include in the workbooks and also any necessary preparation that is specific to the course.
Will I receive anything in the post?
No. All classroom training course materials are sent purely via email. This allows you to edit, update, add logos and print out the materials as required.
In what format will I receive the training course materials?
Trainer Bubble use: Microsoft Word and PowerPoint for our classroom training course materials.
You will download the training materials directly from our website in these formats.
What rights for use of the training course materials do I have?
You have complete rights for use of the materials that you have purchased from Trainer Bubble. You may copy as many workbooks as required for participants on as many training sessions as you care to run and can use the materials as many times as you require them. However, you may not; Copy the whole or any part of the material for sale or re-distribution.
Trainer Bubble are keen to keep down the costs of our materials. Passing them on to third-parties is detrimental to this aim…please do not do it. If you have information regarding the distribution or sale of these materials, please contact the sales team.
Can you create specific course materials for me?
We keep the costs of our training course materials down by creating ‘off-the-shelf’ generic materials that we sell to all. Although we can often assist with designing custom-made materials, we do advise that the costs for this service are much higher than our website products as we have to cover the cost of design for a bespoke product.
I am a Training Provider, can I use your training course materials?
Yes, in fact many training providers already are using our materials to provide training for clients. Our advice is to adapt the materials to meet the specific needs and demands of your target audience. We also advise you to adapt the product listing and content description if you are to promote the training course on your website.
Questions about our e-learning courses...
Can the content be edited?
Yes, the content can be edited by us. We charge a small day rate fee for this service. It is typical that most requested changes can be made within a day.
We do not have a Learning Management System, can you help?
There are two options for clients that do not have a Learning Management System (LMS). These are…
We can provide an LMS for you and charge a small yearly fee for this service. This LMS will be designed with your company logo and colours etc. and provide you with; personal user logins, full admin access and reporting etc. With this approach, you pay for the course/s only once and then the annual fee.
We can provide our e-learning courses on a subscription basis, whereby we host the e-learning on our LMS and individual users have access to the course for a year. We can also provide you with; personal user logins, full admin access and reporting etc.
We recommend the subscription model if you have under 150 users and are only accessing one or two courses. However, some clients prefer to have their own LMS and also prefer to ‘own’ the course, which they pay for only once.
I am a reseller. Can I provide your e-learning courses to my clients?
Yes. Please contact us about our reseller service.
Can you develop e-learning for us?
Yes. We can create custom-made e-learning courses. Please contact us for a discussion about your specific requirements.
