Terms and Conditions for Students at Cake Minds
Please note that these terms and conditions are relative only to the teachers Cake Minds classes and not to any other classes they may offer.
The contract is between you and the Cake Minds teacher in your area and who you make payments too and not to any other Cake Minds teachers
Cake Minds Monthly Modeller classes are designed to be attended regularly, and unless the teacher runs a dip in and out session we would be expecting you to attend on a monthly basis. Spaces on classes are limited to benefit everyone attending.
Payments - Face to Face
Each teacher will have their own specific payment terms, which could be either one of the following:-
Payment per term before the term commences - terms run on four monthly cycles, Jan - Apr, May - Aug (it is up to your teacher if they wish to teach in the summer holiday period and they will adjust payments accordingly) Sep - Dec
Or a security deposit before the following month class commences - ie if your monthly fee is £30 your first payment will be £60, this covers the first class fees and the following month, therefore always paying a month in advance. Please be aware that you will be expected to pay for any sessions missed.
Courses can be paid for by BACs or cash - your teacher will advise you of specific details
Payments - Online
Skills Support Session - payments are made directly to your regular teacher on a monthly basis
Online classes - payments are to be made to the teacher who's class you are taking and they will let you know what method they use.
Classes Cancellation Policy
Cancellations by the Cake Minds Teacher
Cake Minds reserves the right to cancel or change the nature of all courses. In the unlikely event of a class cancellation, Cake Minds will give students as much advance notice as possible and the teacher will endeavour to reschedule as soon as possible. If the teacher is unable to reschedule for that month your payment will be carried over and if necessary adjustments will be made on the following terms invoice.
Cancellations by the Student - face to face
Please inform your teacher by their preferred method of communication as soon as you are aware you are unable to make a class. If the teacher is able to offer you a suitable alternative class they will, however, your fee is still payable and the teacher is not obliged or committed to offer an alternative or refund.
A suitable alternative is deemed a similar project being run on another of your Accredited Cake Minds Teacher, Cake Minds Monthly Modeller classes, and not the teachers own or other classes.
Cancellations by the Student - online
No shows to online classes or cancellations are not refundable or transferable to another teacher. Bookings become a commitment between that project class teacher and the student and cannot be transferred between other project teachers.
