Do I need tickets for your conferences?

Will there be any tea, coffee or cake at the conference?

Yes, it is our pleasure to provide accompanying teachers and adults hot beverages and sweet things on arrival.


Do I need to pay a deposit to secure my provisional booking?

Yes, due to the high level of interest in our events, we require a 10% non-refundable deposit to secure your booking.


Can I change the number of student places I have booked after I have paid my deposit?

Yes, you can increase or decrease your booking number by up to 50% of the original total. However, this can only done before you confirm your numbers, which, for November conferences, must be in September. We will then invoice you. Once an invoice has been issued we cannot alter your numbers or refund places.
