Terms and Conditions of Service
By signing up for a course, you agree to be bound by our Terms and Conditions of Service.
A course may have Preview content, and these are free to view.
You can enrol and pay for a course directly through this website, or through paying us directly through bank transfer or direct debit, or by paying through our advertising partners including Reed courses.
By paying for a course, you have enrolled for that course. Once you start viewing the actual course materials (not the Preview content), then you lose the right to cancel and there are no refunds.
To protect the learner, some of the actual learning materials will not unlock until Day 15 and we will not purchase e-portfolios or awarding body registrations until after day 15. If the learner is paying their fees by monthly instalment payments, then the -Portfolio will not be created until the first monthly payment is received. any expected ma.
If a learner insists on starting their learning immediately without waiting for the expiration of the 14-day cooling-off period, and they are sure this is what they want, we will comply with the learner's wishes and support the learner to start their assignments sooner than day 15.
Your statutory right under the consumer protection Consumer Contract Regulations allows you to cancel 14 days before the course starts, that is before course delivery starts. If course delivery has already taken place, then you cannot cancel but you are bound to complete the course.
The Consumer Contracts Regulations contain specific provisions for digital content. If you access digital content from any of our sites and/or access your e-portfolio, within the 14-day cancellation period, then you acknowledge and give your consent that once you have accessed the digital materials you will lose your right to cancel.
The 14-day cooling-off period does not apply to business purchasers, and therefore learners whose fees were paid by a business or their employer rather than an individual, can start immediately.
