Terms applying to all of our client agreements
In consideration of the agreements made herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, each party shall agree as follows:
For the purposes of these terms:
Headings; Number and Gender. The headings of sections and paragraphs are inserted for convenience only and shall not be deemed to constitute part of this agreement or to affect the construction thereof. The use in this agreement of singular, plural, masculine, feminine and neuter pronouns shall include the others as the context may require.
‘We’ and ‘us’ means Worldwide Kids, who will provide the services to you.
‘You’ means the learner receiving the services.
‘Course’ means a distance learning course or course designed and developed by us including all revisions and updates to such course as we may make from time to time.
‘Course Materials’ means the physical materials relating to any one course, together with all revisions and updates made by us from time to time, which may be in any format and which are required by the student to complete the course.
2. Your Responsibilities
We affirm that the course materials will meet a satisfactory level of quality; however, we do not affirm that they will be error free. You are responsible for inspecting the course materials and informing us about any oversights as soon as is reasonably possible following delivery.
We place some time limits on you to complete your course, and when this expires your login will no longer function. However, we encourage students to complete their course within the allocated time limits for the course to remain current and for you to stay motivated. Following expiry of an incomplete course, continuation of your course will incur a CHF 50 reactivation fee.
3. Transferring Course
We retain the sole discretion concerning whether a course may be transferred from you to a third party. Any such request must be made to us in writing at our registered address. We will treat all justifiable requests as compassionately as possible.
We retain the sole discretion concerning whether you may transfer to another course offered by us. To request a course transfer you must send a written request via email to the Training Manager at email@example.com. We will treat all justifiable requests as compassionately as possible.
If we agree to the course transfer, the total fees paid towards the discontinued course will be offset against the cost of the new course. However, we will require that if the new course fee is greater than that of the discontinued course, the balance should be paid in full along with a standard CHF 50 transfer fee.
4. Training Content
The topics covered during the training will be as close as possible to those stated on the website. However, if we are obliged to make any minor changes to your training we reserve the right to do so and will inform you as soon as possible.
All outstanding course fees must be paid in full before your practical training is due to commence.
Any materials offered with the course will be given to you on the first day of your practical training.
You have a right to appeal the outcome of an assessment on the grounds that you do not agree with the assessment decision made by the Assessor/Tutor/Marker, or that the assessment procedures have not been carried out properly. If you wish to appeal, you must submit written notice to the Training Manager at our registered address within five days of receiving notification of the grade or assessment. Your notice must include your intention to appeal and the grounds for appeal. You must also then provide a full case, in writing, within a further fourteen days.
The Training Manager will review the submission and assessment material with the Internal Verifier and Quality Manager for the final grading. Their decision is final and you will be advised of the outcome in writing.
For a copy of the appeals policy and procedure, please send a written request to the Administration Department at our registered address.
