7.1 We are happy to accept cancellations up to twelve weeks before the course ("Course") you are booked on commences and we will refund the full cost of the Course.

If we are unable to find a replacement, we reserve the right to retain the full fee, at our sole discretion.

7.2 In the rare circumstance where we may need to cancel a Course, we will provide you with as much advance notice as possible and shall either endeavour to offer you an alternative Course of the same standing or return all fees paid, but shall not pay travel or any other costs. In the event a session of a Course ("Course Session") is cancelled, we will endeavour to provide an alternative Course Session, but shall not be obligated to do so, and any course fees shall not be refundable. We do not provide cancellation insurance and advise that you take out your own travel/other insurance to cover against any circumstances that may lead to the cancellation of your booking.

7.3 By paying the deposit and securing your place on a three- or six-month Course, you are committing to attend the Course for its full duration, and are liable to pay the full Course fees as outlined in the payment plan in relation to the Course.

7.4 The foregoing notwithstanding if we are unable to perform the whole or part of the Contract due to any cause or event beyond our reasonable control, we may, at our option at any time, by notice in writing to you, cancel or suspend the Contract in whole or in part without liability and without prejudice to our rights to receive payment of the price for all Services previously delivered.

9.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us in relation to the Services covered by the Contract. If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that we could have reasonably foreseen because:

   9.1.1 the loss or damage was an obvious consequence of our failure to comply with these Terms or our negligence; or

   9.1.2 they were contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into the Contract.

We are not responsible for any loss or damage that we could not have reasonably foreseen.


9.2 We are not liable for business loss. We shall have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of revenue, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity. We also expressly exclude any liability for any loss or damage which may be incurred by you as a result of your breach of these Terms.

9.3 All of your statutory rights are unaffected. We do not in any way exclude or limit our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence; or fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or any other liability which may not be limited or excluded under applicable law. Any statutory warranties to which you are entitled as a consumer (including, for example, that any service is carried out with reasonable skill and care) are unaffected by these Terms.

9.4 Our employees and agents are not authorised to make any representations or give any warranty concerning the Services unless these are confirmed in writing by us. In entering into the Contract you acknowledge that you do not rely on and waive any claim for any breach of any representation or warranty which is not so confirmed.

9.5 Consumer Rights. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to the Services. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice. Nothing in these Terms will affect these legal rights.


We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by an Event Outside Our Control. An "Event Outside Our Control" means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lockouts or other industrial action, civil commotion, riot, terrorist attack (or threat), war (or threat) or fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic, pandemic or other natural disaster, or failure of telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.


11.1 Special offers. From time to time Faber may make special offers available to you. These are available for limited periods only, as further detailed on our site.

11.2 "Writing" includes emails. When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these Terms, this includes emails.

11.3 We may transfer the Contract to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the Contract.

11.4 You need our consent to transfer the Contract to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under the Contract to another person if we agree to this in writing, but we will not unreasonably without our consent.

11.5 Nobody else has any rights under the Contract. The Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

11.6 If a court finds part of the Contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

11.7 Even if we delay in enforcing the Contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of you breaching the Contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Services, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

11.8 Which laws apply to the Contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Services through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have nonexclusive jurisdiction over such disputes and claims. However, as a consumer, you have the right to start legal proceedings in the country you are resident in if you wish.
