When booking a place on a School of Babywearing course, you will generally pay a deposit to secure your place on your chosen course. Deposits are only refunded if the course does not run or if you’re not accepted on the course. If you transfer your booking to a later course, we may be able to transfer your deposit if we can fill your place on the course.
If you book a place on a course and opt to pay by cheque, BACS or if someone else will pay your fees, you place is only confirmed when we have received payment of at least the deposit amount.
Once you’ve been accepted onto a course, you’ll need to pay the balance of your course fees at least two weeks before the course starts unless we have agreed otherwise, in exceptional circumstances.
We operate waiting lists for our courses and will always endeavour to fill any space with someone from the waiting list. If you’re unable to commit to attending a course, please ask to be placed on our waiting list and we can contact you if we have a vacancy.
If you wish to cancel your place on a course, please give us as much notice as possible. Your course place is not transferable to anyone else although if you are able to help find someone to take your place, you will receive the maximum refund (see below). Please contact us to cancel your place before you ask privately (e.g. on Facebook groups) if anyone can take your place as we may wish to allocate it to someone on a waiting list.
Your course fee includes a deposit which consists of an administration and accreditation fee which we are unable to refund (£30 for the Peer Supporter course and Using Slings for Labour & Birth; £100 for the Consultancy course) . If you book onto another course with us at the time of cancelling a place, we can deduct this fee from the costs of the next course. If you cancel your place more than 6 weeks before the course start date, we can offer you a 75% refund of your course fee after deducting the administration and accreditation fee. If you cancel within the six weeks before the course is due to start, we can only offer you a 75% refund if we can fill your place.
In the unlikely event of a course being cancelled by the School of Babywearing,we will refund your course fee in full or will transfer you onto the next available course if you prefer.
