3. Payment Terms
Fees can be paid in a number of ways depending upon the programme you are attending:
- Payment in full no later than 21 days prior to the start of the CPD activity
- For late bookings as soon as the booking is received
- Following the CPD activity your school or college will be invoiced accordingly
The appropriate method of payment will be confirmed at the time of booking.
If fees are not paid in accordance with the instructions provided, PTSA reserve the right either:
- To cancel the booking(s) and re-allocate the place(s) for the CPD activity to another participant(s); or
- To require payment on the first day of the CPD activity
In the event of late payment, PTSA reserves the right to charge interest on all outstanding amounts at the rate of 2% per calendar month or part thereof from the last date that payment was due to the date that payment is made.
Please note that all payments must be made in sterling.
Details of fees are provided on the bookings page of the appropriate CPD activity. VAT may also be payable.
Please note that your school or organisation will be charged the appropriate fee for the activity you apply for based on the organisation you belong to, irrelevant of any fee you may incorrectly select during the application process.
5a. Cancellations (made by the delegate)
PTSA understands that cancellations by delegates are sometimes unavoidable. In the event of a cancellation the following terms will be applied:
- Cancellations 2 weeks before the event: No charge
- Cancellations between 1 and 2 weeks before the event: 50% charge
- Cancellations one day to one week before the event: 75% charge
- No shows: 100% charge
5b. Cancellations (by PTSA)
PTSA reserve the right to change or alter the presenter, content and/or description of any activity and/or to cancel any activity in their programmes if this is warranted by
circumstances beyond their control e.g. adverse weather conditions. It is important therefore that you supply an up to date email address and notify us if this changes.
PTSA reserve the right to cancel or reschedule CPD activities without prior notice, and to amend or alter published programmes, fees, venues and lecturers, without liability. In these circumstances, participants will be offered an alternative date for the same CPD activity, an alternative CPD activity, a credit note or a full refund.
There will be no charge to replace the participant with a substitute. Please inform your designated administrator of the substitute’s details.
If you wish to transfer a booking to an alternative date for the same CPD activity or to an alternative activity, a request must be made to your designated administrator at least 14 days prior to the start of the original CPD activity. If the request is accepted, there will be no charge other than any additional cost of the alternative activity above that of the original CPD activity.
If the transfer request is received by your designated administrator within 14 days of the original course start date, there will be an administrative charge of £10 plus VAT.
Please note that all requests to transfer bookings are entirely at the discretion of PTSA.
