At IPM we understand that Absence is inevitable at times, as a company we try to maintain a fair policy – unlike most ‘activity’ companies we do not ask for huge upfront term time payments where no matter whether you attend or not you still pay, instead we offer a policy that focuses on good communication and a penalty payment is only incurred if the correct notice is not given.
Notice to be given and Penalty Payments.
1. A minimum of 1 week notification of absence given by the class member, meaning you should provide at least 7 day’s notice which must be before the start time of the previous class: No Penalty Payment incurred 100% FREE of Charge.
2. Less than 1 week notification of absence given, meaning you have given less than 7 days notice after the start time of the previous class before absence: Penalty Payment of Full class price payable by class member.
Penalty payments must be paid at or before the next class after absence, payments can be in person or via the members’ area on www.ipmaa.com (please contact the office for the current password). You will be notified by a member of the IPM team if a penalty charge will not be incurred.
Notice of absence: No exceptions will be allowed or considered, due to necessity of commitment to class and to safeguard class place/class enrolment, incorporation in class modules etc - You could hinder your chances of filming, if absence(s) is during a filming module.
Absence without notification will be individually reviewed by IPM Acting Academy’s Management team and a decision made with reference to class place/enrolment, a penalty payment of at least one class in Full for the missing class will be payable by the class member.
If a class member has 4 absences (without notification) or up to 12 notified absences within a 12 month period (period from January to December, this will also include 2 week statutory break around the Christmas and New Year period), the class member will be subject to a review and class enrolment may be cancelled at the discretion of IPM Acting Academy’s Management team. Absences taken outside of the allotted amount will be payable by the class member.
