General Terms & Conditions (Courses)
Please read these Terms and Conditions (“Terms”, “Terms and Conditions”) carefully before purchasing a course from the Childcare Online Training website (the “Service”) operated by Oakwood Home Learning Limited (“us”, “we”, “our” or “Company”).
From time to time it may be necessary for us to review these terms so it is recommended that you check this page regularly. Once changes have been made they will post on the website and continued use of the site or training materials constitutes acceptance.
Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use the Service.
By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service.
You are encouraged to familiarise yourself with your rights contained within the Sale of Goods Act 1979, Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 and the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that (ii) the information you supply to us is true, correct and complete. You expressly agree that we, the company, is not responsible for any loss or damage arising from the submission of false or inaccurate information.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order at any time for certain reasons including but not limited to: product or service availability, errors in the description or price of the product or service, error in your order or other reasons. You expressly agree that the company cannot accept any liability for loss or damage arising out of such cancellation.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order if fraud, an unauthorised or illegal transaction is suspected or default of payment on instalment options.
Students enrolled on a course and paying monthly agree that the monthly fee will be automatically debited from the credit or debit card designated when enrolling on a course. All instalment options for courses are shown on the course page and students agree to pay these fees when enrolling on a course. You must ensure that funds are in your account ready for collection on the correct day of the month which is automatically scheduled as the same date of enrolment.
When paying by instalments, all students are subject to the same cancellation policy of 14 days as those that pay in full. Once this 14 day period has passed, the instalments which are set up cannot be cancelled and students are liable to continue with payments. Under no circumstances can instalments be cancelled after the 14 day cancellation period has passed. Should a student be paying for a course through instalments, certification is not requested until the student has paid all the monthly fees. If a student wishes to pay off the remainder of the instalments to get their certification then this can be done by calling 0800 772 0887.
Should any instalment payment fail then Childcare Online Training have the right to charge a £20 administration fee. Should an instalment remain unpaid after 14 days of the agreed date of collection then the remainder of instalments will become immediately payable and a £35 administration charge will be applied to your account. Should funds remain unpaid, after 30 consecutive days from the initial failed monthly instalment, Childcare Online Training have the right to instruct external agencies to collect these fees from students. In this case 10% will be added to the remaining balance outstanding to cover administration and collections fees.
All of our training materials come with a 14 day money back guarantee. A request should be made within 14 days of enrolment and addressed to Childcare Online Training’s office in writing at which point we will refund the course fees minus an administration charge of £20. Should this 14 day period have expired we, the company, have no obligation to return any monies paid for course materials or cancel any instalment packages.
Any paper-based materials provided on a course must be returned in their original condition without any modifications to receive a refund on a qualification. If these are not returned then COT reserves the right to refuse a refund even within the 14 day refund period. Should a student have accessed tutor support, had any assignments marked or accessed over 50% of the online materials provided then a refund is not available and COT reserves the right to refuse a refund in this case even within the 14 day refund period.
