Good luck to them. If they think so little of their staff that they pay trainers so badly that there is no time to prepare the material, they will get badly-trained staff.

Assuming that they do actually pay their staff at least badly (let's guess £16k plus oncosts - £20k for round figures), seven people are going to cost (20k * 7) / (5 * 48) per day: that's around £600 per day. Wouldn't paying a decent rate for a good trainer represent a rather better return on the investment in staff time?

IME cheapskate clients are not worth the hassle. I'd walk away.
