We shall not be liable to any person for any direct or indirect loss or damage because of your NVQ Qualification enrolment. Should any liability arise, it will be limited to the NVQ fee paid.
3. Our Obligations to You
We will provide you with the qualification, Assessors services, registration with the awarding body and certification, as described in the NVQ Qualification description.
We will not be liable for any failure to perform any or all our obligations where that failure is due to the actions of someone else or to any cause beyond our reasonable control.
There are times when your Assessors may be away on leave or annual break. You will be notified through email and feedback/site visits times will be delayed, refunds for this temporary delay in service will not be granted, we thank you for your understanding.
4. NVQ Delivery Times
NVQ doesn’t have a specific time scale for delivery but will be arranged as practicable possible and following the Awarding Organisation guidance between the Assessor and Learner on the beginning of the assessment process.
When the Assessor will receive the complete Learner NVQ portfolio we reserve the right to claim the Learner certificate/diploma from the Awarding Organisation between 4 – 6 weeks from the date is been received.
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.
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. You will receive a first written warning through the email and if it happens a second time, you will be withdrawn from the qualification without any refund.
