Terms and Conditions for Course Bookings

Once a booking is made and and you have received an email from us, you have made a firm committment to attend the course.

Joining Instructions and an invoice will be sent to you 3-4 weeks before the course due date and this is your confirmation that the course is going ahead.  Payment may be made by cheque, Mastercard, Visa or Switch and must be made before the course date.


We appreciate that you may have to cancel a booking.

Please be sure to confirm a cancellation in writing. 

Cancellation charges

Please note that if you are in receipt of a subsidy towards your course fee from a third party (e.g. a Diversity Fund grant) cancellation fees are still charged on the full course fee.

Short courses:

Cancellation 48 hours before the course - 100% course fee payable.

This excludes weekends and UK Bank Holidays, when the PTC is closed.

Residential courses:

Cancelled more than eight weeks before the course - No charge

Cancelled between two and eight weeks before the course - 50% of course fee

Cancelled within 10 working days of the course or failure to attend - 100% of course fee

We will not send you any further confirmation until 3-4 weeks before the course date. Please do not book accommodation or flights until receipt of joining instructions. If you need any information earlier than this date, please contact us on 020 8874 2718.

Changes to courses

We are committed to improving our courses. We therefore reserve the right to make changes to tutors, content, venues, etc. We will give you as much advance notice as possible of any changes we make. Sometimes low numbers necessitate course cancellations. We will contact delegates on these occasions.
