PME School Terms & Conditions
Our aim is to provide a friendly, clean and comfortable learning environment for all students. When attending our School you are therefore respectfully asked to observe and respect our School Terms and Conditions. Students who fail to observe and respect our Terms and Conditions of attendance may be asked to leave the classroom.
Visitor Non-disclosure Agreement
ue confidentiality reasons all students and visitors to the classroom and offices at number 21 and 23 will be requested to complete a Visitor Non-Disclosure Agreement and where appropriate Photography/Videography consent form.
Acceptance and Confirmation of Booking
We do not accommodate requests to reserve spaces on a course without payment. All course bookings must be accompanied by the relevant deposit or payment in full and spaces are offered on a first come first served basis.
Once your booking request and payment has been received, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know whether or not a space is available and to confirm the booking.
Please note that a confirmed booking onto one of our courses constitutes an agreement between you, the Student and us Knightsbridge PME Ltd. This agreement is bound by the terms and conditions contained herein. If you do not agree with and cannot abide by any of the terms and conditions stated herein, you should not book onto one of our courses.
All classes are taught in English. All students are required to have a good understanding of the English language in order to attend a class. Students may bring an interpreter with them at their own expense and with prior arrangement!
We understand that some of our International Students may need to apply for a VISA before travelling. Therefore, to assist with this process we are happy to provide a “Letter of Invitation”. Please request this in writing, complete and return to us. Students who require a visa should apply in plenty of time as we cannot accept the course booking until we receive confirmation that a VISA application has been successful.
Course Waiting List
We operate a Course Waiting List. When a course is fully booked, you may request to have your name put down on the Course Waiting List. In the event of cancellation by another student, the space will then be offered to students on the waiting list in numerical order.
Student Cancellations/Refunds/Course Transfers
No refunds or transfers will be given if a student cannot attend a course. The exception may be: if the class is a sell out and we can offer that space to someone on the waiting list, then the fee will be refunded. In extenuating circumstances a transfer or a refund may be offered at the discretion of Knightsbridge PME Ltd.
Cancellation of Course by KPME Ltd
We reserve the right to cancel or change a course, but this will always be as a last resort. If KPME Ltd cancels a course, then a full refund of the fee paid by the Student will be given.
Course fees are for the tuition only unless otherwise stated. Where a student is required to bring their own supplies, an equipment and materials list will be available prior, to the beginning of each course. Each student is expected to organize their own equipment for use in the classroom to prevent the need to borrow from fellow students or the teacher. We will endeavour to send this to students with a confirmed booking a minimum of two weeks prior to the commencement of the course. If you do not receive this it is your responsibility to make contact with us to request it.
As many students will have the same products in class, you are advised to clearly mark your tools and equipment to make them easily identified. A permanent marker pen seems to work well. Please note that your tools and equipment are your responsibility and KPME Ltd cannot and will not be held responsible for any loss or damage of tools and equipment whilst on our premises.
Where applicable Course Kits that are included within the structure of the course and are NOT exchangeable or refundable under any circumstances.
Arrival, Signing In and Out
Upon arrival you will find the front door is locked for everyone’s safety and security, please ring the bell to gain entry. Once inside the building turn left and report to a member of staff in our Retail Showroom where you will be asked to sign in the visitor’s book. Please remember to sign out before you leave, thank you.
When attending one of our courses we offer the student a 10% discount off the product purchased for the purpose of the course. This is not valid for publications or stock that is already discounted, in which case the price you see is the price you pay. The discount is only available to the student whilst attending the course and does not extend past the last day of the course.
Students are asked to observe good time keeping and ensure they arrive on time. Classes will begin promptly; any time missed by a student will be lost. Time permitting the tutor will bring the student up to speed only if it doesn’t impair on fellow students. Where this is not possible the student will need to catch up in their own time.
