It is important that you read this declaration carefully so that you are happy you understand its content.
a. How we verify the information you provide
If we, or a training provider, have any reason to believe that you have:
We may take any necessary steps to check with you and other parties, including your support work (if their details have been shared in your application) whether the information you have provided is accurate or complete.
We have the right to cancel your application if we determine (having carried out any necessary checks), or have reasonable belief, that your application contains false information.
If you have any reason to believe that information we hold about you is not true, complete and accurate, you must tell us.
If you make an application to more than one training programme, you may find yourself with more than one confirmed place. If this happens, we, and the course providers, will ask you to accept one and withdraw from any others.
You can apply to as many programmes as you like, but can only be enrolled on one programme.
Your application is a contract between you and us, and when you accept an offer from a course provider, there will be a separate contract between you and them. No one else can enforce any part of these respective contracts under the terms of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or any other legislation.
We try to process applications efficiently and accurately. However, we are not responsible for any mistakes or delays, or any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of any mistakes or delays, which are due to the acts or omissions of course providers or which are otherwise outside of our reasonable control.
When you make an application, they course provider will contact you directly. It can sometimes take up to two weeks to receive a response from the course provider. When they contact you, they may require you to give further information about your work experience, interests, barriers as well as personal information. The course provider should also provide you with or make available to you relevant information about course information, payment incentives, requirements and any other relevant information such as how enrolling on this programme might affect your benefits. They should also inform you of your right to cancel your application should you change your mind. The course provider should also provide you with information about their terms, rules and regulations relating to participant conduct, which explain your rights and obligations to the course provider and, likewise, their obligations to you as a participant of their programme.
You should read and understand this information before making a decision about an offer, as this is likely to form the terms and conditions of the contract between you and the course provider if you subsequently enrol there. If you do not receive the required information, or you wish to make a complaint, or if you are not clear about anything relating to your offer and the information provided, you should contact the course provider directly to ask for further advice.
If you become a participant of a programme, under your contract with the course provider, they must do all they can to provide the employability services in accordance with the contract you have with them. If the course provider is unable to provide these services for any reason, they should do all they can to keep the disruption to your education to a minimum, for example, by offering you a place on a suitable alternative course or providing assistance to help you find a suitable alternative place elsewhere.
You have the right to cancel your whole application. If you let us know within 14 days of the date on our official welcome email to you, we will inform the course provider of your withdrawal.
To do this, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We limit access to the personal information contained within your application to course providers, certain organisations who have statutory or regulatory responsibilities and to trusted, non-commercial organisations to enable research about the employability sector.
When you submit an application, Skills Training Network Ltd may use your personal information for the following purposes:
This section only applies to an individual or organisation (‘agent’) submitting an application on behalf of someone else. This is called a ‘referral’.
Before submitting a referral on behalf of someone else, an agent must:
We have the right to cancel an application if we determine (having carried out any necessary checks), or have reason to believe, that an agent has not fully complied with these requirements.
