I signed up for a course that I was told was British

This answer was rated:

I signed up for a course that I was told was British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) accredited. In my 2nd year the college lost its Bacp accreditation and the course was not accredited. Was I mis sold the course as I now am disadvantaged in terms of employment? I also have substantial loss of earnings whilst I studied as I could have studied a different course with less learning hours and resulted in the same situation

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

How much are you seeking to claim please?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
About £4500.00. Not at home so do not have exact figures

You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund and compensation within 14 days or say will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.

If they do not pay then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: or by completing form N1 and take it to your local County Court.

The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.

If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Thanks for your advice

All the best.

It is also an important part of the online process. Thank you in advance and good luck!
