If you wish to book a place on one of our courses, you can do this either via the website, phone, email or in person. Provided that there is an available place on the course, we will email an invoice and the course confirmation letter to you as confirmation of your booking. This will contain information regarding the course booked, start dates and payment information.

If Teach A Trade declines to enrol you for any reason or if, after accepting your enrolment Teach A Trade subsequently discovers information which gives it reasonable grounds to believe that the course is not appropriate for the you for any reason, Teach A Trade may cancel the booking and will notify you accordingly. Where this happens, unless the reason for the cancellation was your non-compliance with the terms (including, where you are booking on behalf of someone else, your failure to ensure that the Student complies with the obligations applicable to him/her) Teach A Trade will give you a full refund of any sums you have already paid.

Here at Teach A Trade we will take all reasonable steps to make courses as inclusive as possible, it is essential that you are aware of the following:

  • All our courses are delivered in English
  • Workshops and assessments require a reasonable level of physical fitness and health
  • The trades that our courses cover, if not properly performed, can be potentially dangerous, and therefore Teach A Trade courses are designed for individuals intending to use the skills developed in the course of their trade.

By placing a booking you confirm that you can understand spoken English, write and read proficiently in English, has a reasonable level of physical fitness and health and is either already working in their chosen industry or is intending to enter the chosen industry. If you have any doubt as to whether you meet these requirements you should discuss any issues with Teach A Trade before placing the booking (and, in the case of any issues with fitness or health, seek a professional opinion from a qualified medical expert).

Teach A Trade accepts no liability for any adverse consequences arising from you/the student’s participation in a course which arose as a result of you/the student not meeting the eligibility requirements.
