These terms and conditions relate to any Knowledge Through Growth courses and events taking place on or after 1 January 2017.

This document (together with the documents referred to on it) tells you (“you” means the party contracting with KTG for Courses) the terms and conditions on which we (“we”, “us” or “KTG” means the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply) supply training courses and events (“Courses”) and is to be read in conjunction with our General Terms & Conditions of Business and Website Use available on the KTG Website www.ktg.org.uk.uk/t‐and‐c (“General Terms”). If there is an inconsistency between any of the provisions of these terms and conditions and the General Terms, the provisions of these terms and conditions shall prevail. Please read these terms and conditions carefully before booking any Courses on our Website. You should understand that by booking any Courses, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions. You should print a copy of these terms and conditions for future reference.

1. Booking Courses
Bookings for Courses can be made via our “Website” (means www.ktg.org.uk) at the following link: www.ktg.org.uk training or by contacting our Team on +44 (0) 203 020 1529 or at info@ktg.org.uk. For online bookings, please select the Course that you require and click on the “Book” button, following the instructions step by step.

2. Description and pricing of Courses
Although we make every effort to ensure the prices listed are correct, mistakes may sometimes be made. If a mistake is discovered in the price of the course that you have booked prior to confirmation of your booking, we will tell you and give you the option of either reconfirming your booking at the correct price or cancelling your booking. In this instance, if we are unable to contact you or we receive no reply from you, your booking will be cancelled. KTG reserves the right to change prices listed without notice. KTG also reserves the right to refuse to supply to any individual or company.

3. Provisional bookings
When booking a Course online, acknowledgement of the booking request is emailed within 1 working day of the request being received by KTG. Where a booking made online, by email or over the telephone is not accompanied by full payment or a formal purchase order (sent either by post or by email), the booking will be deemed to be provisional (“Provisional Booking”). Provisional Bookings will only be held until 2 (two) weeks prior to commencement of the Course, after this any Provisional Bookings will be cancelled.

When payment has been received in full, or a formal purchase order has been provided (either by email or by post), the individuals’ place on the Course will then be confirmed and a binding contract will have been entered into between KTG and the booking party. Please refer further to the “How to pay” section below.

4. Third party bookings
We accept bookings from third party companies acting on a delegate’s or organisation’s behalf, however the booking information supplied must relate directly to the delegate(s) in question and include the following:
• Delegate name
• Job title
• Company name
• Company address (site address)
• Direct phone number
• Direct email address – this can be a work or personal email address
Bookings cannot be processed without this information being provided in full. This is to enable us to contact the delegate(s) directly when necessary (such as to provide joining instructions or attendance certificates) and also to provide appropriate health & safety and security measures at course venues.

5. Cancellation of Courses
KTG reserves the right to amend or cancel any Course, Course times, dates or published prices. Changes to Course prices, times and dates will be advised before the Course start date and any Course already paid in full will not be subject to the increased price. As a Course may be cancelled at any time up to four weeks prior to its start, we recommend that delegates do not make travel or accommodation arrangements before this time.

Any travel, accommodation or subsistence costs incurred (including incidental costs such as car parking) are entirely the responsibility of the delegate or the delegate’s organisation.

KTG does not accept any liability for reimbursement of any costs incurred whatsoever in relation to its training Courses or events. Where a Course has been cancelled, delegates will be offered an alternative date for the same Course or a refund.

6. How to Pay
If you are making a booking online, you can pay by bacs, paypal or by purchase order.
(KTG hopes to offer debit/credit card payments in the near future)

If paying by purchase order, the invoice will need to be addressed to the booker or delegate’s employer. Payment must be made within 30 days from the date of the invoice or if the booking is made less than 30 days before the Course date, payment is required before the Course start.

For bookings made other than via the Website, payment can be made in the following ways:
• Direct bank transfer to the KTG bank account, details of which can be found in Clause 20;

Please note that we do not accept payment by cash or cheque. We also do not accept payments in any currency other than UK pounds sterling.

You are advised to notify the Team in advance if you wish to pay by direct bank transfer to ensure the swift confirmation of your booking. You will not be eligible to attend the Course until full payment is received.

In the case of late bookings payment must be made prior to attendance of the Course. If payment is not made prior to the delegate attending the Course, KTG reserves the right to refuse admission until payment has been made in full.

7. VAT & Card Charges
Fees quoted are exclusive of VAT, which will be shown separately on the invoice. A VAT invoice will be sent to cover your payment.
