Conditions of Use

The Company cannot guarantee that any particular Course, its Materials or item will be available.  In the event of a Course being sold out, we will endeavour to find an alternative. If this is not possible a full refund will be given.


It is your responsibility to comply with any specific Course requirements particularly, but not exclusively, in relation to the submission of any Coursework and/or the assessment of the same.  Some Courses and levels of Course have very specific requirements which a failure to comply with may result in You not completing the Course or being deemed to have failed the Course.

Time for payment of the Price shall be of the essence.  The price is due and payable on dispatch of the Course and/or Materials.

Where it has been agreed to accept payment by instalments, the Price remains due and payable at dispatch, and any failure to make any instalment payment within three days of its due date shall, in addition to any other remedies the Company may have, entitle the Company to:

  • In the event of any request for payment being declined by your bank, building society, credit card provider or the like, an administration charge of £9.95 per declined payment shall be levied. We also add a £30 Administration Charge to all debts passed to our debt collection agency.
  • If you do not sign your Direct Debit for within 7 days of purchase we may suspend your support and the full amount will fall due.
  • Should a debt recovery agency be utilised to recover outstanding monies, the cost of that may be added to the outstanding balance.  We may also lodge the failure to pay with the main Credit Reference Agencies which may affect your ability to obtain credit in the future.
  • For the avoidance of any doubt and subject to Clause 5, any termination by You prior to the Course being completed or the Services having been provided in full, the full amount for the Course will still be due and payable.

Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies which the Company may have, the Company may terminate this Agreement without liability to the Customer immediately on giving notice to the Customer if the Customer fails to pay any amount due under this Agreement including, but not limited to the Fees on the due date for payment and remains in default not less than seven (7) days after being notified in writing to make such payment.

A waiver of any right under this Agreement is only effective if it is in writing and it applies only to the circumstances for which it is given.  No failure or delay by a party in exercising any right or remedy under this Agreement or by law shall constitute a waiver of that (or any other) right or remedy, nor preclude or restrict its further exercise.  No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall preclude or restrict the further exercise of that (or any other) right or remedy.

Unless specifically provided otherwise, rights arising under this Agreement are cumulative and do not exclude rights provided by law.
