Block Bookings

10. Trans-Euro reserves the right to put additional delegates on a course held at Trans-Euro that has been block-booked by a client, without reference or discount to the client making the block booking. Block bookings can only be made for employees of the same company.

Disclaimer

13. Attendance by a delegate on a Trans-Euro course, even with a formal qualification certificate on completion, does not provide any guarantee of workmanship, performance, quality or status of the delegate during future endeavours such as plying his/her trade, applying for membership/enrolment of trade bodies/institutions, or for job seeking etc.

14. All information provided by Trans-Euro is given in best faith and Trans-Euro will not be held responsible for actions taken by the delegate/client, any other individual or organisation as a result of the information provided during the training course.

Late arrival

15. If delegates arrive late for a course, or are absent from any part, Trans-Euro reserves the right to refuse to accept those delegates for further training, if it is considered that they will gain insufficient knowledge or skills within the course time remaining. In all such cases, the full course fee remains payable.

Identification of delegates

16. Delegates will be asked to provide proof of identification before starting the course by showing a photo ID, preferably driving licence or passport.

Delegate behaviour

17. If a delegate’s demeanour, attitude or behaviour adversely affects the harmony of the learning environment, or disturbs the enjoyment of the course for other delegates, then that delegate will be asked to leave the course immediately, without any financial liability to Trans-Euro.

Delegate private study

18. Delegates will be asked to undertake private study in the evenings. It is also strongly recommended that delegates undertake some pre-course revision to make best use of the contact time with the lecturer during the course itself, and to maximise their performance in any exams.

Delegate safety

Delegates refusing to carry out the instructions may result in their immediate removal from the course, without any financial liability to Trans-Euro.

Delegate equipment and belongings

Data Protection

21. Trans-Euro is registered under the Data Protection Act 1998. No sensitive personal data concerning delegates is retained by Trans-Euro.

Complaints and Appeals

22. Any complaint should be made in the first instance direct to the Trans-Euro employee involved. It should be escalated to the assessor or internal verifier/quality assurance coordinator if satisfaction is not obtained. External bodies such as City & Guilds and NICEIC will not accept complaints made directly to them unless this process has been exhausted. The full company Appeals Policy is available on request from the Centre Secretary.

Equal Opportunities

23. Trans-Euro is committed to giving delegates an equal opportunity of gaining an award irrespective of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, physical abilities, learning capabilities, eyesight, hearing etc in line with UK and EU legislation. Delegates with impairment(s) should make their requirements known in advance of booking courses in order to provide time for specialised staff external to the Centre to be made available to assist and for additional exam time to be sought where appropriate, eg for dyslexic delegates or for those with hearing difficulties. The full Equal Opportunities Policy is available on request from the Course Secretary.
