ISL Classes – Terms & Conditions

ISL Courses:

Fees must be paid in full at registration and are not transferable to another person or another term. Only when full payment is received can a registration can take place. Payment implies that you accept the conditions of registration.  

Minimum age for enrolment in a course is 16 years.  

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 day or time, will be at the discretion of management and subject to availability on other courses.  

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 ISL teacher. 

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

CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS – Students should consider their personal and professional commitments and circumstances before enrolment as we regret that no fees are refundable once the course has started. 

Should you wish to cancel your booking before the course begins, a minimum 14 days’ notice should be given. For given notice less than 14 days, administration costs may be deducted from any refund facilitated.  

No partial refund for classes can be granted for sessions not attended and no postponement can be allowed.  

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, in which case a full refund will be made or the offer to defer will be given. 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.
