Deaf Adult Classes – Terms and Conditions

Courses for Deaf and hard of hearing adults: 

These courses are only aimed at Deaf and hard of hearing people ONLY. In order to register for the desired course(s), the student is directed to the website, and complete the registration form for the course(s). 

Minimum age for enrolment in a course is 16 years. 

Registration is not transferable to another person or another term. Only when full registration is completed online, can a registration take place. 

Completion of the registration form implies you understand these terms and conditions. 

Attendance is the student’s responsibility. 

We regret that it is not possible to make up a missed class by attending another group’s session. 

Once the course has started, any requests to change course e.g., to a different subject, day or time, will be at the discretion of management and subject to availability. 

For online courses, the learner is responsible for having access to the necessary technology, hardware and software. In particular, learners are responsible for ensuring they have access to reliable broadband. 

The Irish Deaf Society provides equal opportunities to all learners and applicants to access to our education and training programmes. 

Classes are occasionally used for teacher training purposes. This will always be under the supervision of your teacher. 

The Irish Deaf Society reserves the right to change teachers during the course. 

CANCELLATIONS – Students should consider their personal and professional commitments and circumstances before enrolment. 

Should you wish to cancel your booking before the course begins, a minimum 14 days’ notice should be given. 

Once the course has started discretionary decisions to facilitate a course deferral due to compassionate or compelling circumstances can be made by management but requests must be made in writing with supporting details and/or evidence provided. Please note that changes in personal or professional schedules are not considered as compassionate or compelling circumstances. 

The Irish Deaf Society reserves the right to cancel a course in the case of insufficient student numbers or unforeseen circumstances. Classes will be filled on a first come first served basis. 

DATA PROTECTION POLICY– We are committed to protecting your personal data and right to privacy in compliance with Data Protection legislation and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We collect, share and transfer learner’s personal data to other data controllers where required or permitted by law. The information that you provide to the Irish Deaf Society will be used for its stated purpose.
