Delegate Terms and Conditions
Cancellation by a participant
Where a place on a course has been confirmed a 90% refund will be given for cancellation up to 4 weeks before the workshop, a 50% refund will be given for cancellation up to 2 weeks before the course. No refund will be given for a cancellation within 2 weeks of the course. This includes failure to attend a course due to illness. In the event of becoming unwell or physically incapacitated prior to attendance on a course the participant should contact the POGP workshop administrator or POGP workshop coordinator if they are hoping to still attend. POGP reserves the right to make the final decision whether a participant can attend the course. Failure of the participant to disclose any changes to health could result in a participant being turned away on arrival at the course venue or during the course itself. The policy will also be valid for a cancellation of a place for an overseas participant. In addition, any extra costs incurred for bank charges and administration will be subtracted from the final refund.
Participants who fail to attend the course on the date booked without giving notice or who give notice after the course has started are not eligible for a refund or a transfer to another course regardless of the reason for non-attendance
Cancellation by POGP
In the very unlikely unforeseeable event that we have to cancel a course we will offer you the choice of a full refund of the course fee or a free transfer to an alternative course date. We will try to give you at least 2 weeks’ notice but sometimes (for example when a course is cancelled due to bad weather) this is not possible. We reserve the right to cancel a course where we believe the weather conditions are so bad that it would be unreasonable to expect participants and/or tutors to travel to the venue. If we make the decision that it is reasonable to run the course and it goes ahead as planned, failure to attend the course may result in the loss of the course fee. It is the participant’s responsibility to research alternative methods of transportation before a course to assure you can attend. We reserve the right to alter any specified course tutor (to cover for sickness or late unavailability) to enable an advertised course to run.
We recommend that you book fully refundable travel and accommodation for your course. POGP accepts no liability for non-refundable costs in the event that a course is cancelled. You might like to consider travel insurance to cover any significant non-refundable costs incurred.
Cancellation due to COVID-19
Refunds due to COVID-19 can only be given in the following circumstances:
If POGP cancels the course prior to commencement POGP participants will be offered the opportunity to transfer to a future POGP course. If an alternative date is not acceptable the course fee will be refunded with no administration fee charged. However, POGP is not responsible for any travel or other expenses which may have been incurred.
The same rules will apply to participants who are unable to attend the POGP course due to travel restrictions imposed by the UK government or, for overseas participants travel restrictions imposed by their national government. Documentary evidence may be required for overseas participants.
If a participant is unable to attend due to COVID-19 related issues a full refund of the course fee will be given. This includes if you are self-quarantining, living with someone who is self-islolating or have symptoms of COVID-19. If this is the case please email firstname.lastname@example.org to notify POGP.
In the event of a participant having to quarantine following a visit abroad in accordance with UK government guidelines, then the COVID-19 cancellation section of this document is not applicable.
POGP reserves the right to alter the cancellation policy to reflect the changing directives from the UK government.
