TERMS & CONDITIONS
The following is a sample from my normal Terms & Conditions when visiting an educational establishment:
Many courses require the setting-up of equipment for demonstrations and practical work and a suitable location for installation of aerials - details will be agreed when booking, together with time necessary for preparation / dismantling of equipment.
The school will be responsible for providing a member of their staff to be present throughout my visit to supervise pupils and act upon any emergencies such as fire evacuation.
For safe storage of equipment (for example, during lunch-breaks) the school agrees to provide a classroom which can be locked when unattended.
I have public liability insurance which covers equipment I bring to the classroom and aerials used for demonstration purposes. Insurance for all other eventualities remains the responsibility of the school.
If an establishment requires a Risk Assessment to be conducted, necessary paperwork must be forwarded to me for completion at least four weeks before the commencement of course.
I have passed CRB checks with both Dorset and Somerset Education Authorities. If an establishment in a different location requires these checks to be made, they will be responsible for providing the necessary documentation in sufficient time, at their cost.
If an establishment wishes to cancel a course, one month's notice will be required in writing. If cancellation is made during the four weeks prior to the delivery date, a cancellation fee of £100 will be payable.
If I am unable to attend a course due to circumstances beyond my control, a mutually-convenient alternative date will be offered.
Payment of my fees is due within 14 days from the end of a course. An invoice for this will be provided by me at the end of the course.
If the course duration is greater than one day and the establishment is located further than 25 miles from Yeovil, the cost of reasonable overnight accommodation will be charged in addition to my normal fee, unless the establishment can provide this on-site.
I reserve the right to amend these Terms and Conditions at any time.
