Booking and payment structure of courses

Traditional Upholstery School is a small creative business, and our students are incredibly important to us. We always aim to create a friendly and professional environment to learn in, and build trusting relationships when we offer teaching. This makes it vital that we have clear and sensible terms in place when you book one of our courses. It saves frustration and misunderstanding when life's trials get in the way.

For the majority of our short courses payment is made in full on enrolment, unless otherwise clearly stated. The exception is the three-stage AMUSF diploma which has it's own fee payment schedule. Booking for short courses can be done online through this website.

Here are our terms:

• It is stated clearly in the course details what materials and equipment is provided for use on the course and is included in the course fee. Students are charged for materials on an as-you-use-it basis. Additional materials can often be purchased on the day.

• Course fees will not be refunded if a student cancels their place within 40 days of the start of the course. This term applies to all reasons for cancellation, including bereavement and illness. We do have every empathy for students who cannot attend a course at the last minute through no fault of their own, but we are not able to buffer this loss to our bookings. 

• Once a place is booked, we do not offer the option to transfer this date to another course should a student not be able to attend. We are open to a student sending someone in their place, if that is possible.

• If a student cancels their place earlier than 40 days from the start of the course, Traditional Upholstery School will endeavour to fill their place. If we succeed - and we will certainly try to - we will reimburse your deposit. That said, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to fill place and so cannot guarantee a refund. We will always do our best to be fair.

• Course fees will be refunded in full if a course is cancelled by Traditional Upholstery School.

• Traditional Upholstery School reserves the right to cancel or alter course dates and will always aim to offer plenty of notice in this unlikely event.

• Students should be aware that these courses require an element of bending and standing and are expected to take responsibility for their own safety and ability to work. 

To spread the cost of a course, a deposit of a portion of the course fee can be paid on enrolment onto the course, with the balance paid 28 days before the start of the course. Failure to pay the balance could result in the place being withdrawn. Staged payments are subject to a 5% administration fee. 

By booking on a course you confirm that you have read and understood these Terms and Conditions.
