How do we pay for our child’s tuition?
Payments for iAchieve Extra Tuition are generally made via Direct Debit. The annual cost of tuition is split equally over 12 months to make payments manageable and consistent for you as parents. This is the same for our Term Time Only students as well as for our Full Year students. This means that Term Time Only students pay a share of their annual fee in August but do not study. Payment for tuition fees is due monthly in advance.
Your first payment will be due on or before your child’s first session and then, on or around the same date each month thereafter.
At Learning Academies we use a Direct Debit payment scheme processed by GoCardless. GoCardless is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority under the Payment Services Regulations 2009, registration number 597190, for the provision of payment services. GoCardless is a BACS approved bureau.
Once you complete your booking form online you will be passed to a secure Direct Debit page on our website where you will be asked to complete your account details to finalise your booking on the iAchieve Programme. Once completed You will be taken back to a confirmation page on our Learning Academies website.
You will receive notification from Go Cardless to confirm that your Direct Debit Mandate has been set accepted. You will also receive a second notification from Go Cardless to confirm the payment schedule set up for your child’s tuition. Notifications are always sent by Go Cardless 2-3 days prior to any payments being taken – so you remain in complete control.
Please rest assured, you can cancel a Direct Debit payment at anytime before a payment is due to be made. However, it is worth noting that if your Direct Debit is cancelled it is not possible to reinstate it, unless a new Direct Debit mandate/subscription is agreed.
If you need to change any payment or the date of payment please contact us and we will do our best to help. Just call 0845 463 1342. If you change your bank / current account provider you should ask your new bank to switch your existing Direct Debit over to your new account to ensure instalments are not missed.
Go Cardless’ Direct Debit scheme is protected by the Direct Debit Guarantee which protects You against payments made in error or fraudulently. It also means that you can get a full and immediate refund from your bank for any payment taken in error.
