Fees and Refunds

We make every effort to keep our prices as low as possible and therefore regret that we cannot return payments to students who withdraw from a course. However, consideration will be given to refunding course fees up to 14 days before a course start date; a £10 administration charge will be levied. Transfer between courses is sometimes possible. However, unless this is on the advice of Yateley School Adult & Community Learning, a £10 administration charge will be levied.

No refunds will be made if a student withdraws from a course less than 7 days before the start of the course.

Once a course has started the centre will only consider refund requests in exceptional personal or family circumstances: holidays, new time commitments and similar changes do not qualify.

All course fees are payable at the time of enrolment. The fees quoted are current at the time of publication but may be changed at any time up to the date of enrolment.  Fees will not normally be refunded unless Yateley School Adult & Community Learning cancels a course.  We reserve the right to reduce or vary the duration of a course and to close a course at any time if attendance numbers drop below a reasonable level.

Some courses such as Cooking and Arts & Craft may carry additional expenses for materials. Please check with the Community Team at time of enrolment.

 

Minimum Enrolment Number 

If a course does not have enough learners enrolled it may not run.  Sometimes we can run a course for a shorter period of time at the same cost to make it viable, if all learners are in agreement.

Fee Remission is applicable to most courses
