You should only purchase your apprenticeship registration once you have paid for and successfully passed your assessment.
Please note the the total price of the programme is £4,995 (inclusive of £1000 non-refundable deposit and registration fee).
- In order to register for a place in our apprenticeship programme, you must first submit an application and complete an entrance assessment (£120).
- Once you have successfully passed your entrance assessment, you will need to make a £1000 non-refundable deposit to register your place in our programme.
- Full payment (the remaining £3995) is due no less than 1-month prior to January 2019 apprenticeship start date to confirm your place. If we do not receive full payment by that time, your registration will be considered cancelled (and no deposit refunded).
- If we reach capacity before we have received your payment, we reserve the right to cancel your registration. In this event we will refund you the cost of your deposit. We will only be accepting 4 apprentices into our programme starting January 2019.
- When you register for our apprenticeship programme, you confirm that you understand the commitment of time required to complete the training programme. It is your responsibility to ensure the course hours/requirements will be met in the time allotted and can fit into your schedule and life commitments.
- You will receive a full refund (less deposit) if we receive your apprenticeship programme cancellation in writing (firstname.lastname@example.org) with 90 days or more notice prior to the start of the programme.
- Any apprenticeship programme cancellations received with less than 90 days prior to the start of the programme are not accepted and no refund will be issued.
- Apprenticeship Programme cancellations received after the commencement of the programme are not accepted and no refund will be issued.
- For the avoidance of doubt, we do not accept cancellations due to change of mind, weddings, work travel, holidays, personal relocation or similar. In these instances no refund will be given.
- It is your responsibility to keep track of our programme training dates and to attend all workshops scheduled.
- If you are unable to attend any of the workshops as scheduled, it is possible that missed hours can be made up privately at an extra cost (£37.50 per workshop hour missed)
- All course requirements, including workshop hours must be completed at each level before you can be assessed at that level.
- Any outstanding fees in regards to making up workshop hours, will need to be paid before you can be assessed at each level, meaning that if you miss 1 hour of an apprentice workshop at the intermediate 2 level, that one hour will need to be paid and made up before you can schedule your intermediate 2 assessment.
