Terms and Conditions of Service
1 - Important Notes about conduct while using this site https://www.coursesforjobs.com the online platform of Courses For Jobs Ltd
a) This LMS (Learning Management System) is an online college and a professional working environment. Misbehaviour or Misconduct will result in removal from the course.
b) Anyone who uses our this website or logs into this LMS is deemed to have agreed to these Terms and Conditions and Code of Conduct, whether they are just browsing, or are buying for someone else, or they paid for their course themselves, or someone else paid for their course and gifted it to them.
c) Buyers must use a valid card with sufficient funds to pay for a course. If your card is declined at Checkout, repeatedly creating new accounts and re-attempting payment with the same rejected card will not change the outcome, and will result in your card being blocked by your bank or card issuer. Repeatedly attempting to use a rejected card on our Checkout will be considered by us as suspicious financial activity. If your card is declined, use a different card or ask someone else to pay for you. Repeated suspicious financial behaviour on our Checkout will lead to disciplinary action and blocking and banning from our site.
d) By signing up for a course or qualification, you create a legally binding contract, and you agree to be bound by our Terms and Conditions of Service. Buyers paying for someone else must use the link titled "Pay for Someone Else" displayed on the course landing page. A buyer must not deceive us and pretend to be the learner just to use the discount codes offered to self-funding students. Such deception and malpractice will result in expulsion from the course.
e) All advertised courses and qualification have a public landing page that is free to view, and prospective learners should read the publicly advertised Course Information on that landing page.
f) A learner can enrol and pay for a learning programme directly through this website, or by paying through our advertising partners including Reed courses. UK Employers and UK sponsors paying one-time payments of more than £500 can also pay us directly through bank transfer, if card payment is not convenient for them.
g) By paying for a course and creating your Learner Account with your own details, you have enrolled for that course as yourself. Once you login to this LMS, you lose the right to refunds, even if you decide to cancel.
h) 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 you have already logged in to this digital platform, then you lose the right to a refund even if you cancel during the first 14 days.
i) The Consumer Contracts Regulations contain specific provisions for digital content. If you login to our LMS or access digital content across any of our online learning and/or assessments sites, within the 14-day cancellation period, then you will lose your right to a refund even if you cancel.
j) 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.
k) Some of our competence-based qualifications are for individuals in England only, while some are for England and Northern Ireland only. We will state clearly within the publicly available Course Information the location requirements of any recognised qualifications, and prospective learners will have been deemed to have read the full Course Information before they started the qualification.
l) It is the learner's responsibility to ensure that their Learner Account is used by only the Learner and no one else, not even by the person who paid for the course. By logging into your Learner Account, you have indicated your agreement to be bound by our Terms and Conditions of Service by Courses For Jobs Ltd.
m) Each course enrolment is intended for the student only, and no one else. The coursework assessment is NOT a team effort, it is for the student only, to enable that person undertake learning, and the Certificate of Completion is given to provide proof that the learner whose names are on the certificate undertook the required learning and assessments. Once the Certificate of Completion has been issued, the names on the certificate cannot be changed.
n) Certificates are not interchangeable, as that will be fraudulent. And when a learner undertakes coursework in another person’s name, that is classed as academic fraud. Learners are warned that if a learner provides their login details to multiple persons to gain access to their Learner Account, then we cannot be sure who is actually the learner, and the Learner's enrolment will be cancelled and any certificate they obtained in such suspicious circumstances will be void. Any cancellations due to deception or any type of fraudulent behaviour, either by the buyer and/or the learner, will not have the option of appeal, and without refund of any fees paid, even if within the first 14 days.
o) Learners must be honest, professional, and avoid any form of suspicious or unreasonable behaviour, malpractice, dishonesty, cheating, deceit, spamming the discussions/course communities with content not related to the course, or any other nefarious activity, that may void their enrolment or void any certificate they may otherwise obtain on completion of learning. Learners must not upload any content or attempt to convert others to their religion, or use our site to spread any type of religious ideology or any type of radicalisation, as such gross misconduct will result in immediate expulsion from the course.
p) The learner must not make false claims or spread lies about Courses For Jobs Ltd to our corporate partners for example Reed Courses, by making false allegations such as claiming that login information was not sent to them, when there is clear evidence that their login details were emailed to the learner, and there is clear evidence that the learner has logged into the LMS using the same login information that they claim not to have received. Such false allegations, when proven to be untrue, may result in expulsion from the course, without the option of appeal, and without refund of any fees paid.
q) Under no circumstances do we guarantee that you will obtain any qualification or a pass from your subject course assessment, quiz, or test, or exam.
r) All prospective learners are advised to check that the qualification and/or course they are paying for is fit for their purpose and is suitable for their work placement in the region of the United Kingdom that they reside in.
s) For recognised qualifications, the public Course Information on the landing page will contain details Ofqual-recognised Qualification Number and other details pertaining to the recognition as provided by the Awarding Body.
t) For those seeking to use a qualification to meet entry for a University degree, it is the responsibility prospective learner to check with any relevant Regulating Bodies, Universities or Colleges, or Employer, that the course they are purchasing will be accepted, for work in their region and accepted as entry to the University.
u) It is the responsibility of the buyer and prospective learner to read the Course Information that is publicly displayed and ensure they understand this information prior to making any payments. Once payment is made, and the buyer sends us the learner's details for enrolment, the buyer's involvement ends. Buyers are not involved in learning delivery and/or learning support of our learners. Courses For Jobs Ltd support our learners directly and if a learner needs support the learner must contact us directly, including for issues of login support. Once we have enrolled a learner on to a course, the buyer must not email us support requests on behalf of the learner; the buyer must not attempt to act as an intermediary between Courses For Jobs Ltd and our learner; and the buyer must not interfere in any way with our delivery of learning support to the learner.
v) Courses For Jobs Ltd and/or our staff will not be held responsible for any errors of judgement by the prospective learner in selecting the qualification they choose to study, or making payments for their chosen qualification/course.
w) All users should read the Support Information posted at
x) We reserve the right to refuse custom to provide qualifications, courses, training or advice and guidance to anyone, without having to provide a reason to that person.
2 - Policies and procedures for Recognised Qualifications
a) We do not teach these RQF or QCF courses, we only assess your submitted evidence and provide feedback on assessed evidence, according to Awarding Body requirements. Feedback to each assessment will be provided in writing within the ePortfolio.
b) We provide learning support to the learner by giving the learner access to learning resources in their secure learning account on our secure Learning Management System (LMS) within www.coursesforjobs.com and each learning resource and online community is supported by a qualified Assessor
c) It is the learner's responsibility to study and read their learning resources, and update their knowledge and understanding, and their skills and competence. It is not up to the company to tell the learner when to study or how to study.
d) All qualifications are self-paced and self-directed. It is the learner's responsibility to decide when to study, how to study, and any other activities they need to undertake to successfully complete the qualification to the required standard.
e) All our RQF qualifications are taken by adults over 19 years old. The qualifications and courses are specifically delivered by online and distance learning courses, and therefore it is the learner's responsibility to complete their assignments and submit them.
f) Recognised qualifications must be completed within the time-frame chosen by the learner during their enrolment. Maximum allowed completion dates for recognised qualifications are 12 months for Level 1, and 18 months for Levels 2, 3, 4 and Level 5 qualifications. After this enrolment period expires, the e-Portfolio will automatically be locked and withdrawn. To unlock the withdrawn e-Portfolio, the learner must re-enrol into the qualification with payment of full fees at whatever current fee rate prevails.
g) One free extension of two months to an existing original enrolment will be available if requested six months before that original enrolment is due to expire.
h) Extension of the original enrolment to between three and nine months will be available on payment of extension fee of £7 per outstanding Assessment Criteria, if requested at least four months before the original enrolment is due to expire. On payment of the extension fee, the maximum extension to the original enrolment that can be granted will be for nine months.
i) For recognised qualifications, Courses For Jobs Ltd completely separates "Learning" from "Assessments" as this removes any possibility or even the perception of any type of malpractice, either by the learning provider (the company), the Assessors, IQAs, or by the learner. Therefore, learners enrolled on Ofqual-recognised qualifications will have two accounts with us, a Learner Account on this LMS at https://www.coursesforjobs.com/ and an Assessment Account with e-Portfolio on a separate assessment platform.
j) The Learner Account is our online equivalent of the "Classroom". The Assessment Account with e-Portfolio is our equivalent of "Exam Hall". The Assessment Account with e-Portfolio is to be used for Assessments only. Not for messaging Assessors for discussions.
k) The Assessment Account with e-Portfolio will not be used to conduct any type of learning activities; in the same way that a teacher doesn't conduct any type of teaching to students in the "Exam Hall" who are undertaking exams.
l) The e-Portfolio messaging function will not be used by anyone in Courses For Jobs Ltd for sending and/or receiving messages on the Assessment Account. The e-Portfolio forum function will not be used to share learning content or provide learning support within the Assessment Account.
m) Learners must must read and abide by the Assessment Plan provided by the Assessor, within the e-Portfolio. It is only after a submission of completed assignment or work-based evidence within the e-Portfolio that assessors will assess and grade the work the learner has submitted and add it to the portfolio of evidence as appropriate.
n) Assessors will be assigned and paid to grade learners’ evidence based on assessor availability, and learners cannot choose which assessor will grade their coursework.
o) All contact between Assessor and Learner must be in writing, through www.coursesforjobs.com Online Study Community for the Qualification and In-Course Discussion within online lessons on the LMS.
p) Assessors will not communicate with learners outside the approved channels of communications whereby the communication can be fully recorded and stored in case of disputes. Assessors will not deliver one-to-one tutorials to any learner, whether by private emails or by phone, unless that learner has paid the Courses For Jobs Ltd the extra one-to-one tutorial fees of £50/hour, as required. Therefore Assessors will not conduct any phone conversations with learners. Any student who has paid extra fees for bespoke tutorials will have live contact via live Zoom video calls, which will be recorded.
q) Learners needing support must use the LMS contact systems Online Community and In-Course Discussions, as provided through the Learner's Account Dashboard at https://www.coursesforjobs.com/
r) All learners studying for recognised qualifications must abide by these terms and conditions in full, regardless of whatever amount of money they paid as fees. Those who breach these terms and conditions risk being expelled from the qualification they are studying.
