Date changes prior to 90 days before the original service commencement can be accommodated free of charge. The supplier reserves the right to treat any date changes outside of this as a cancellation.

3.7 The customer must provide the supplier with one point of contact for the administration and co-ordination of the programme.

4. OTHER GUIDELINES FOR CUSTOMERS AND DELEGATES

4.1 It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that delegates are free from any condition which would affect their capability to undertake their chosen course and that they have the aptitude to cope with an intensive course of study. If a delegate is registering independently of an organisation then it is the delegates responsibility to do the same. We welcome students with disabilities but it remains their employer’s responsibility to ensure that they are appropriately supported in their workplace.

The supplier would welcome in advance, for setup purposes, notification of any assistance that a delegate is likely to need during the running of the course. We will do our utmost to accommodate any special needs.

4.2 If it is felt that the delegate does not meet the learning outcomes of the course and or assessment process and is referred, they will be offered a free assessment. Any further training or coaching over and above that provided on the course may be charged for.

4.3 The course may be provided on-line. In this case the supplier will utilise Adobe or Zoom. Any alternative platform will be advised by the supplier in writing to the customer. It is the customer/ delegates responsibility to ensure that their IT set-up supports the use of these platforms. Delegates must all have webcams and microphone capacity on the devices used to access the training and be in a suitable location to ensure that they can participate in the course fully without interruption.

5. FAIR PROCESSING

All information that we hold concerning you will be held and processed by the suppliers strictly in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 2018.

We will not, without your consent, supply your name and addresses to any [other] third parties except where (1) such transfer is a necessary part of the activities that we undertake, or (2) we are required to do so by operation of law.

As an individual, you have a right under the Data Protection Act 2018 to obtain information from us, including a description of the data that we hold on you.

10. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS AND COPYRIGHT AND CUSTOMER INFORMATION
