Cancelling A Skills Development Service Workshop/Course
Please email SDS@cf.ac.uk with the details of the workshop(s) you wish to cancel as soon as you know you are unable to attend the workshop(s). In the case of Saturday Emergency 1st Aid courses you must inform us by 12pm on the Friday before, indicating whether you would like a refund or transfer of booking to a later date. If you are unable to attend and do not cancel your place you will be marked as a "failing to attend" and risk being removed from Skills Development Service membership. In the case of Emergency 1st Aid courses you risk losing your payment.
Please contact us here if you have any other queries.
Cancelled Workshops/Courses by SDS
We reserve the right to cancel or postpone a workshop/course if there are found to be less than the feasible numbers having signed up (or staff illness has occurred). We consider that a minimum of 6 sign ups are required for the workshop/course to run. Sometimes other teaching priorities may restrict SDS staff so that a workshop may be postponed to a later date. We will always advise those who have signed up in these instances and will endeavour to re-arrange later alternatives.
