The balance is paid to the tutor who will contact you by email with instructions on how to pay.
The balance payment must be made in full on receipt of tutor payment details and within 7 days after receiving the tutor email. This will confirm your booking.
A course booking is not confirmed until FULL payment has been received. If your fee is not received as stated above your place on the course is cancelled and your booking fee is lost.
For late bookings, balance payments should be made on the day of booking.
Cash payments on the day of training are NOT accepted.
Balance payments are also non-refundable.
Cheques: As a rule, we do not accept cheques. If you do pay your booking fee or balance by cheque, this should be done at least 21 days before the date of the course.
COURSE CANCELLATION: In the event of a complete cancellation by a student the full course fee is lost.
If you cancel your course less than 14 days before the course date, you will lose the full course fee. Only your own personal illness will exempt you from loss of fees. A doctor's letter or copy of a sick note will be required to request a change of course date.
Failure to attend a course: If you fail to attend a course without notice the full course fee is lost.
Only your own personal illness will exempt you from loss of fees. If, on the day of the course, you are unable to attend due to illness, you must inform your tutor as soon as possible. A doctor's letter or copy of a sick note will be required to request a change of course date.
Change of course date: with good notice ie no later than 14 days before the course date, your tutor may be willing to change the date of your course. However, for changes made with less than 14 days notice, a charge of £50 will be made.
Delayed courses: all courses must be taken within 6 months of the booking fee being paid. Any longer delay in taking the courses will result in the full course fee being forfeited.
Cancellation because of problems with models: If your model is found to have any contra-indication on the day of training, the course cannot go ahead and is deemed cancelled. You will need to rebook at full cost.
If your model fails to turn up and another one cannot be found for the day, the course is deemed cancelled and you will need to rebook at full cost.
Course cancellation due to Covid-19
We understand that during the Covid-19 pandemic there may be a situation when you have to cancel a course at a very late hour/date. In this situation, we obviously understand and if Covid-19 is the reason for your cancellation, you will not lose your fees or have to pay for a change of course date. We will need a doctor's letter to support this.
Home study courses will not be refunded.
Assessment of courses: the vast majority of students will pass their course on the day. However, occasionally a tutor may deem that the student has not reached competency. In this situation, students will need to return for extra practice of a treatment/routine and re-assessment. An extra charge will be made for this.
Assessment of Reflexology and Aromatherapy Diplomas: students have 6 months from initial training date to complete case studies and assessment otherwise you must repeat days 1&2 at further cost.
Assessment of Anatomy & Physiology: students have 6 months to complete the course or sign up again at full cost.
COURSES WITH ONLY 1 STUDENT:
Courses will still run if there is only one student but you will need to bring a friend or family member on whom to practise. It is the responsibility of the student to find a model. Tutors may try and provide models if you are finding it difficult to bring one yourself but this cannot be guaranteed and is entirely at the discretion of the tutor.
If you are unable to find a model and cancel the course less than 14 days before the course date citing not being able to find a model as the reason, you will lose your course fees. (See paragraph above re course cancellation.)
During the Covid-19 pandemic, models should be within your household or household bubble.
All models must be over 18, in good health and not have any contraindications. You will receive an email regarding contra-indications relevant to the procedure you are learning. It is the responsibility of the student to check contra-indications carefully before the day of training. If you have any doubts please contact your tutor well in advance of the course date.
If your model is found to have any contra-indication on the day of training, the course cannot go ahead. You will need to rebook at full cost.
If your model fails to turn up and another one cannot be found for the day, the course is deemed 'cancelled' and you will need to rebook at full cost.
Models for waxing must be prepared to have all necessary areas waxed.
If models are pregnant, no massage is allowed in the first trimester and they MUST gain written GP or midwife approval to receive a massage or other treatment where appropriate.
All of the above regarding contra-indications and health also apply to you the student if you are exchanging treatments with another student.
Models and students for Lash Perm, Lash & Brow Tinting & Shaping and Semi Permanent Lash Extension courses: for Health & Safety and insurance reasons a patch test MUST be carried out on yourself and your model 48 hours prior to these courses. This can be done either at the training venue if you live nearby or by yourself, having purchased your own kit, which you must bring on the training day.
Note re models for some venues/courses: Some venues require you to bring a model for all courses regardless of the number of people on the course. Please check with your tutor regarding this. This also applies to some courses: Inch Loss Body Wrap, Make Up, Semi-Permanent Lash Extensions, Nail Technician.
1:1 training: If you specifically request 1:1 training an extra charge of £50 will be made.
Refresher courses: You are required to provide copies of your certificates before attendance on the day; please take a clear photo or scan and email to head office. Please bring your notes for your procedure/routine so that you can refresh your treatment as it has been taught to you.
Occasionally a tutor may decide that one day is insufficient to bring your skills up to the required standard. In this case, extra study time will be arranged at an extra cost. This is entirely at the discretion of the tutor and is always designed to meet your training needs.
Timing of courses: Timing of classes is at the tutor's discretion. Classes can and do end earlier/later than stated depending on size, even or odd student numbers and other factors. If it is a one to one, we often finish earlier.
Insurance: All of our courses are accredited by the Beauty Guild who offer full insurance cover for all of our qualifications. It is the student's responsibility to check with their own insurance provider that they will recognise our courses for insurance purposes.
