How much does and Instructional Designer Cost?
Costs can vary based on the experience and seniority of the Instructional Designer. Other influences on costs can be the length of contract, location and complexity of project. Our Instructional Designers bring deep experience with them on every assignment and can often be far more efficient than less experienced resources. This may mean that whilst they are paid more the total cost is less. Contact us for a tailored proposal.
