Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Have you done any of the advanced part of the course?
Sorry my connection dropped earlier. If the course provider has cancelled your contract with them and refused to honour their part of the agreement they would need to show that they either had the contractual right to do so, or that you had acted in fundamental breach of contract yourself.
So first f all you should check the contract to see if they could cancel it early for any reason and also what that means in terms of a refund for the remaining fees. Similarly, you should check to see if there were examples of what could constitute a serious breach on your part that would justify them cancelling the contract early.
It is also worth noting that they cannot just keep the money you have paid for additional courses or even for the existing course you were doing, unless they can show they had suffered some losses. Let’s say that the advanced course had not even started yet and they had the opportunity to find a replacement for your place then it is unlikely that they can justify keeping these fees as they would not have suffered losses.
So whenever a dispute arises over money owed by one party to another, the debtor can be pursued through the civil courts for recovery of the debt. As legal action should always be seen as a last resort, there are certain actions that should be taken initially to try and resolve this matter informally and without having to involve the courts. It is recommended that the process follows these steps:
Whatever correspondence is sent, it is always advisable to keep copies and use recorded delivery so that there is proof of delivery and a paper trail. The court may need to refer to these if it gets that far.
