How we deliver NVQs

We will not be liable for any failure to perform or all of our obligations where that failure is due to the actions of someone else or to any cause beyond our reasonable control.

4. Accreditation
Many of our qualifications are accredited by national awarding organisations. Due to changes in certification processes, it may occasionally be necessary to substitute an awarding organisation for another of similar or superior status. Such substituted accreditation will always be from an Ofqual-regulated provider. We reserve the right to do so according to operational requirements, without individual notification.


5. Plagiarism
We will not allow copying of work and where plagiarism is found we reserve the right to withdraw the learner from the qualification without a refund of the course fee.

Equally the certificate and any potential cards won’t be requested until the invoice has been settled in full.

We appreciate that in some circumstances, companies may  not have the flexibility to adapt their payment terms to ours therefore in certain circumstances we can create a bespoke payment solution.
