Course Quality & Suitability
The College is confident that you will be pleased with your course and that it will be true to advertised title and description. Tutors are carefully selected, trained, skilled and suitably qualified and aware of the needs of participants. If there is a problem with your course you should raise it with the Tutor and/or Co-ordinator in the first instance. Experience is that most problems can be "fixed" in this way. If after raising your problem with the Tutor and/or Co-ordinator your problem is not solved, or if you do not feel comfortable doing so, then call the College office and discuss the matter with our friendly staff who can advise you and take steps to address the issue. We will refund your fees in full. All we ask is that you complete a detailed evaluation form to help us improve the course in future. An evaluation form can be obtained from the College office. We depend on your enrolment fee to run a course, and once a course has commenced we are committed to finishing it. Please refer also to the statement on Refunds.
