Covid-19 and the residential training course:

Important Notes:

  • Stage 1 distance learning, to be completed before Stage 2 begins.
  • Stage 2 residential training starts at 2pm on the Monday and finishes at 2:45pm on the Friday at Highgate House unless otherwise stated.
  • You will receive confirmation of your place on the residential training course at the time you receive your distance learning materials.
  • Please consider your residential course dates carefully as cancellation fees apply.
  • It is extremely difficult to change residential course dates, particularly if you take out the Advanced Learner Loan and again fees apply.

Cancellation Policy – Diploma Courses

Cancellation on or before 2 weeks of the start of the residential course

100% of the Stage 1, distance learning, payment and 50% of the residential course fee is payable.

 Cancellation less than 2 weeks of the start of the residential course

100% fee will apply.

If you withdraw from your course you will need to return all materials you have received.

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 postponement. An administrative fee of £35 + vat is charged for changing course dates.

If you withdraw from the course and you have taken out the Advanced Learner Loan you WILL be liable for at least part of the loan, and possibly all of it. See Loan details here
