If you are paying the course fees by monthly instalments it is the responsibility of the student to ensure the funds are available on or after the agreed instalment dates. If any agreed instalment dates fall on a non working day the instalment will be taken on the next working day.
If an instalment is unpaid and your account is not brought up to date within 14 working days the full amount outstanding will be due for payment.
Premier Training will take further action to recover all overdue amounts plus any interest incurred if you fail to pay your account balance.
If the course fees are being covered through a Professional Career Development Loan this will be paid on behalf of the student direct to Premier Training in 3 stages (month one, month six and month nine)
Pass Promise: The Pass Promise will only apply if students have been actively and continuously studying in line with their personal timetable provided by Premier Training.
Actively and continuously studying is defined as being in line with dates set out within the student’s personal timetable and no later than 4 weeks overdue on any dates set within the timetable.
Tutor support and access to materials will be given over 12 months for Level 1 Access, Level 2 Foundation and Level 3 Advanced Students. Tutor support and access to materials will be given over 18 months for Level 4 Professional students. Students who reach this end date and have not completed may have their personal timetable amended for a further 6 months as long as they have been actively and continuously studying. Should students request to extend their timetable after the additional 6 month period a £50 fee (ex VAT) will be compulsory. This fee will allow a further 12 months access to resources and tutor support.
Should the AAT standards change* and an official termination date be placed on the course by the AAT while a personal timetable is still live, students will be offered the opportunity to transfer to the new standards for a fee. This fee will cover a transfer fee which includes a new personal timetable for 12 months (18 months for Level 4 Professional) and new materials. Students can only transfer their course onto new standards once. Students who have previously transferred but still need to complete their course when new standards come into effect again, will be required to pay the full course fee.
Students must be aware that if the qualification standards change during their studies it may affect their original study plan of the units they were required to complete in line with changes to modules made by the AAT. Standards changing may also affect any Exemptions or Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) that may have been awarded to students upon enrolment with Premier Training or registration with the awarding body.
Students are required to purchase any new study materials and software if the Finance Act changes** whilst studying the course.
Students who request to have their course studies placed on hold due to personal circumstances will be given a maximum of 3 months grace. The course timetable will be placed on hold and once the grace period expires the course will resume. The course end date will be extended on the timetable to ensure that the time remaining to complete is equal to the time remaining from the point the course was placed on hold. The 3 months grace only relates to course support period and NOT any existing payment plans or outstanding debts. Payment plans and outstanding debts can not be place on hold and must be paid inline with the original agreement.
Students who request to have their course placed on hold due to personal circumstances will be given a maximum of 3 months grace. The course will be placed on hold and once the grace period expires the course will resume. The course end date will be extended to ensure that that the time remaining to complete is equal to the time remaining from the point the course was placed on hold.
Additional amendments to timetables and fees will be reviewed for individuals on a case by case basis where there are exceptional circumstances. This will be at management’s discretion.
If you have not completed the Premier Training initial assessment you may be required to provide relevant qualification certificates or statement of achievement. If you have been asked to provide them you will be required to email or post copies within 7 days of enrolment. If we do not receive them within 7 days the course will be placed on hold and you will not be able to access your MyPTA account or tutor support until we have received them. The course will still expire on the original end date stated on per your personal timetable.
We will not address any disagreements or complaints regarding assessment outcomes if the course programme has not been followed.
* When AAT introduce new standards a 12 month notice period will be given to existing students before the course is terminated by the AAT
** The Finance Act will change each year but notice will be given to all students by AAT and Premier Training prior to the materials becoming outdated.
Price Match Promise: On the date of enrolment, to qualify for our Price Match Promise, the alternative provider must be offering the same AAT course with personal tutor support, an equal amount of tutor marked assignments and practice assessments with e-learning resources.
Refunds Policy: Premier Training offers a 14 calendar day cooling off period. If you wish to cancel the course and require a refund you must contact Premier Training within the 14 day period and all materials must be returned in a re-saleable condition within 14 days of receipt and the customers’ online account will be terminated. After the 14 day period has passed, no refunds will be given. We will not be able to offer a refund for Sage 50 Accounts or Sage 50 Payroll software if you have registered or activated the software.
If any course materials are damaged or missing the relevant fees will be deducted from the amount refundable. If you have paid or agreed to pay any Awarding Body/Exam Centre fees to Premier Training these fees will still be payable if cancellation of the course has been approved. The P&P paid upon enrolment is non-refundable unless the course materials have not been dispatched to the student at the time of cancellation. Please note the cost of P&P to return any course materials to Premier Training is payable by the student.
The following relates to students who have enrolled onto multiple levels and then wish to cancel one of the levels:
Because you received a discount for enrolling onto multiple levels, the discount will not apply if you subsequently cancel one of the levels. This means that any cancellation will account for the FULL price of the level completed and only the balance of the payment made will be refunded.
If you wish to cancel the course after the cooling off period has ended you are not entitled to a refund and will be required to pay ALL of your instalments as agreed upon enrolment.
The course fees are broken down into percentages of study books, e-learning, My Premier Training Account (MyPTA), administration, course advisor and tutor support. For a full breakdown please contact the course advisor team.
