Cancellation and Refund Policy

We may, regretfully, have to cancel a course if we do not receive enough enrolments, this decision will be taken in conjunction with the tutor and in consideration of the ability to cover operational costs. Changes may be made to the length or session time in order for the course to proceed and avoid disappointment, in these circumstances you will be informed as soon as possible and a refund will be made by crediting your credit/debit card or by cheques. It is not possible for us to make refunds in cash.

Wherever possible in conjunction with the tutor, we will offer replacement or extended sessions to make up for sessions cancelled due to extreme weather, tutor illness or other unforeseen reason. In the unusual event that this is not possible, we will recompense learners by issuing a pro-rata credit or learning voucher against a future course.

If you need to withdraw from a course and inform us 7 working days before the course start date you will be offered a full refund or credit voucher against a future course.

If you withdraw from a course at any other time, you will not be eligible for a refund. However, in exceptional circumstances and at our discretion, we may be able to offer some credit against a future course.
