Policies and procedures help us to communicate the values of our organisation and provide written boundaries within which we operate. They also articulate and provide clarity for the relationships we have with those who engage with the OMC.
Agreed policies and procedures provide a framework in which decisions can be made. They help us to standardise engagement, teaching and training and monitor and improve our services.
The policies and procedures below help our external colleagues, course participants and trainee teachers understand the relationship and contractual obligations when engaging with the OMC.

General Terms and Conditions
In addition to the above policies and processes we have a range of general terms and conditions:
Teachers and Trainers
The OMC reserves the right to substitute named teachers and trainers on any of our events. While we attempt to deliver based on published information, named teachers and trainers are for guidance only and not necessarily guaranteed. Refunds will not be offered based on a teacher / trainer substitution.
We strongly recommend applicants make payment using the registration page or via any web enabled link we have sent. Invoices may only be raised where an employer is paying, however this method can be slow. No place is secure on a course / training until applications have been assessed and full payment has been received (unless otherwise agreed by the OMC team in writing). Once an invoice has been raised places are dependent on prompt payment within the stated payment terms. Places may be released if these terms are not met. Responsibility for payment remains with the participant, if an employer or sponsor does not pay the invoice the participant will be liable to make payment or meet the cancellation charges.
Details of our cancellation processes can be found in our General Terms and Conditions Policy (P1)
