    We Go the Extra Mile

    At KLVC we believe that if you want to train with us we should help all we can! This is why we have developed a range of extra services to help you get the most out of your training and your trip to Orkney.

    Finances: To help you manage the costs, we are happy to set up a pre-payment plan for you. If you are classing this as a business trip, then we will help you claim back any UK VAT that you have paid on your other expenses during your time in the UK, if you are resident outside the UK we will also make sure that you only pay UK VAT on our fees if you have to.

    Getting Here: Don't worry - the KLVC team will help you arrive safe and sound. We can help you book flights, trains, boats or car hire, and any over-night stays you want to make on the way. If you want to extend your stay and bring your family with you for a holiday, then we can book all the extra accommodation you need. So please contact us to get your trip tailor made.

    Getting Around: Firstly, we will collect you on arrival in Orkney and because transport is provided during your training, you do not need to bring a car if you don’t want you. We can also arrange sight-seeing trips during your stay - so there's no stress.

    The essence of Orkney's magic is silence, loneliness and the deep marvellous rhythms of sea and land, darkness and light
