3. How the contract is formed between you and us
3.1 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to ‘buy’ a Programme (training or coaching). All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Programme you have ordered has been agreed (Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Confirmation.

4, Consumer rights
4.1 You may transfer to an alternative Open Programme, for a transfer fee of £50 unless it is within two weeks of the original agreed Open Programme date, in which event a transfer fee of £100 will be payable by you in advance of the new Open Programme date.
4.2 If an In-house Programme is postponed by you but is rescheduled and runs within 30 days of the original Programme date, no fee will be payable by you.

6. Price and payment
6.1 The price of any Programme will be as quoted on our site from time to time or on our promotional literature, or in a written proposal except in cases of obvious error.

We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Programme’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Confirmation to you. If a Programme’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site or in our promotional literature, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Confirmation, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
6.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Programme to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Confirmation if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
6.6 Payment for all Programmes must be by credit or debit card, BACS or CHAPS transfer and received by us in cleared funds prior to your attendance on the Programme. We accept payment with Visa and MasterCard. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we despatch the Confirmation.
