Benson & Company Ltd. and its affiliates (collectively, “us”, “we”, Benson & Co.” or “Benson & Company “) provides this web site, its sub domains and mobile versions (the “Web Site”) according to the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Use”). By accessing this Web Site, you agree to the following Terms of Use. If you do not agree to abide by these or any future Terms of Use, do not use or access this web site.

Course Description
Due to the nature of our training courses and programmes and our need for continuous improvement, Benson & Company Ltd reserve the right to change the course content and trainer, at any time, in line with market demands.

Course Dates and Venue
Benson & Company Ltd reserve the right to alter or cancel published dates and change venues without liability. In the event of a cancellation where an alternative cannot be provided, monies received in respect of that course can be refunded in full. Whilst every effort will be made to avoid resource changes, Benson & Company reserves the right to amend or replace any pre-named trainer scheduled to deliver a specific course.

Joining Instructions
On receipt of written confirmation we will issue complete joining instructions detailing your participation on the training event. This includes a learning objectives questionnaire, a location map, venue details and course timings.

Learning Objectives
Learning objectives questionnaires have been designed to establish individual training needs. These questionnaires represent an essential part of our course refinement process and enable trainers to understand the individual needs of the delegates.

Full Access
Full Access/special offers cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount. The Full Access offer applies to the course attendee only. Any subsequent substitution may invalidate the discount offered.
Standard transfer and cancellation terms and conditions apply. The Full Access offer is only applicable if the bookings are received directly through Benson & Company Ltd. If an online discount is available at the time of booking this will only apply to courses that can be booked online.
The discount only applies to Benson & Company run courses and does not apply to third party partner courses or events. Cancellation of Full Access will result in a 100% cancellation charge for the year.

Course Discount
Course Discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion. Course Discount only applies to Benson & Company run courses and therefore does not apply to third party partner courses or events. Course Discount excludes individual coaching, eLearning and in-company courses. Course Discount is subject to the availability of places on the specified course. We reserve the right to withdraw course discount at any time.

Provisional Bookings
To make a provisional reservation on a course, please contact one of our advisors on 0800 088 7569. To secure a telephone reservation, written confirmation should be received within 5 days of the provisional booking being made.

Confirming a Booking
Your reservation will be confirmed by email or by telephone with a hard copy in the post.

Training Fees
All fees in our brochures are current at the time of going to print. However, we reserve the right to change them.

Delegate Substitution
If you would like to make a substitution, please call us on 0800 088 7569 and we will be happy to help you. Substitutions with the exception of Full Access courses can be made at any time without incurring a penalty.

Payment can be made by cheque, credit/debit card or BACS. Our payment terms are 14 days from date of invoice or prior to the event, whichever is sooner. In any event, Benson & Company reserve the right to refuse admission if payment has not been received prior to attending your course. In the event of late payment we reserve our statutory right to interest at the rate of 8% above base under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998. For payments in Euros or Dollars please contact us.

The following charges apply if you cancel:

  • 29+ days before a course = 20% of the course fee.
  • 15-28 days before a course = 50% of the course fee.
  • 0-14 days before a course = 100% of the course fee.

Any free of charge bookings would be subject to a £100 administration charge in the event of any cancellation.

Transfers of Date
Transfers made 15-28 days prior to a course will be charged at 20% of the course fee. Transfers made 0-14 days prior to a course will be charged at 50% of the course fee. Transfers made 0-28 days prior to a course booked free of charge will be charged at £50 administration fee. The transfer option only applies to delegates who are transferring to a different date for the same course. Delegates must specify their choice of transfer date at the time of transfer. If a delegate uses the transfer option, the original course invoice and the transfer invoice remain due, even if the transfer reservation is subsequently cancelled.

Replacement Course
We guarantee to offer a full refund or replacement course if the attended course did not reflect the current published description. If the claim is requesting a replacement course the replacement course must occur within 90 days of the original course date. All claims must be made in writing within 10 working days of the attended course date to tr@bensoncompany.co.uk
