1. Process and Payment
Applications for a place on a course are considered on submission of a Coaching Development application form.

This will be scheduled on receipt of application.
Payment should be made within 10 days of the MI. A deposit or instalment payment must be received in order to confirm a place on the course. Until such time as full payment is received Coaching Development may continue to sell or allocate places.

Coaching Development reserves the right to adjust the above terms. In such an event the revised terms will be supplied to the student in writing and will be valid on that occasion only.

6. Waiver and Termination
Any waiver given by Coaching Development Ltd in relation to any condition will only be effective if given in writing and will only be valid on that occasion. Coaching Development Ltd has the right to terminate the contract with the student immediately in the following circumstances:
- Where the student has committed a breach of his or her obligations under the terms and conditions.

- Where the relationship between Coaching Development Ltd and student has, even after mediation, become untenable.
- In the event of the termination of the contract, the cancellation provisions set out in Section 2 shall apply.
