Registration and Enrolment
People attending learning and participation activities at NTR are asked to complete an annual registration form. In addition participants must also enrol for each activity e.g. a term’s workshops, a holiday activity, a masterclass. A place on a preceding activity does not guarantee a place on a forthcoming one. Places are issued on a first come first served basis.
Enrolment commits participants to full payment of fees for the activity. Except in special circumstances refunds cannot be made. Should a participants’ fee not be paid in full by the specified date, places may be made available for others on the waiting lists. There can be no reduction in fees for participants who are absent from sessions. All workshop fees and a large majority of excursions are subsidised by NTR. As a registered charity, we have a limited amount of bursaries available. Please call the office for details. If at any point the payment of fees is difficult, please contact NTR as soon as possible.
We do our very best to ensure all planned sessions go ahead. However there may be rare instances when sessions have to be cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. As much notice as possible will be given. In circumstances such as bad weather, we will provide notices on our website.
No refunds will be given unless the activity or event is cancelled. In exceptional circumstances, at the discretion of the Learning and Participation Director we may be able to offer a place on a future activity of the same value. This must be used within six months.
Data Protection Act
To comply with the Data Protection Act 1998, NTR is required to advise all participants that their personal records will be held on file. These records will be kept confidential and solely for the purpose of administration of NTR activities. These records will not be disclosed to any person outside of NTR without your consent unless the Data Protection Act 1998 allows this. Your signature on the registration form acknowledges that you accept these provisions. To support participants, we record their progress, personal development and achievements whilst engaging with our services. We use various activities, forms and conversations to do this. We do this to help evidence the value of our work to each other, to our funders and stakeholders. All personal information is treated confidentially and, if we use it in reports, the information is anonymised.
We trust in general that participants are happy at NTR. Obviously however, over a period of time the odd problem may arise. Should you be unhappy with events at NTR the following procedure should be followed; In the first instance, the matter should be broached with the activity leader; If a satisfactory conclusion is not achieved than an appointment should be made with the team manager; If a satisfactory conclusion is still not reached then a formal complaint in writing can be made to the Learning and Participation Director.
It is important that parents collect young children at the end of each session, as we cannot take responsibility for your child after that time. We take every care that we can to ensure children leave our sessions safely. Please see our Safeguarding Policy and Travel Plan for further details on our website.
We are members of Norfolk Safer and have been awarded their Safer Certificate. NTR works hard to ensure best practise and the safety of all who attend our activities.
