Terms and Conditions
By enrolling on your qualification course with inspired2learn, you give us permission to share your contact details, and to share work you submit to us for assessment with our Awarding Bodies (the Chartered Management Institute and Institute of Leadership & Management) and associated regulatory bodies. This is to enable them to fulfil their accreditation and quality control processes.
Your statutory right under the The Consumer Contracts Regulations, 2014, allows you seven working days from the date we start you on your programme (ie. when you receive confirmation that you have been registered with the Awarding Body) in which to make a written request for cancellation. This can be by email or letter. If you cancel within this period, we will return in full any fees you have already paid.
Study fees must be paid according to the payments schedule agreed when you enrol with us. We will only register you with the Awarding Body on receipt of your full payment or agreed first instalment.
When payment has been agreed by way of an instalment plan, you agree to make the required payment on the dates agreed from the outset, via direct debit. In the event of a payment not being received, we reserve the right to withdraw our services and cancel your enrolment.
After enrolment, all course fees and additional resources fees paid are non-refundable. In exceptional circumstances, partial or full refund, or a credit note, may be issued at the discretion of the inspired2learn Directors. However, to demonstrate our confidence and reassure you of our commitment to you, we have a money back guarantee*. We promise that if for any reason you are unhappy with the level of service and support from us during the first month of your enrolment, we will refund to you in full all fees you have already paid.
* To be requested in writing (e-mail or letter) to an inspired2learn Director, with details of how our service has not met your expectations; specifying events, dates and names of our staff as applicable.
