CCL reserves the right to consider each case on its own merit for cancellation and will take into account the reason for the cancellation. They will consider circumstances where a legal requirement restricts attendance, such as jury service or a court appearance (proof in the form of documentation will be required). Postponement may also be considered where a learner or close relative (parent, child, or sibling) has suffered a serious illness or accident (a medical confirmation document will be required) or in the instance of death of a close relative (parent,child or sibling). Each case will be considered separately. This could mean a postponement to a later course and can only be considered for one occasion.
