We provide quality tuition services in Years 7 – 12 English and Mathematics to help our students improve at school and ultimately to be in good stead for success in the Higher School Certificate. These services may be provided at our physical campuses or online via an appropriate platform such as Zoom. QED Education reserves the right to alter the form of service delivery at any time if management deems it necessary.
The conditions for the different courses (such as Year 7 English and Year 11 Mathematics) are generally the same, and relate to things such as tuition fees, access to additional tuition services, behaviour and attendance expectations, subject and class selection, course inclusions and other parent/student commitments as part of enrolment. If you change your enrolment during the Service Period (for example taking on an additional subject, or altering your enrolment such that a promotion no longer applies,) you may be required to pay additional fees.
You may pay for your Enrolment Fees either by cash, or by bank transfer. Payment details are located on the invoice, and cash payments can be made to QED Education reception at L1 269 Church St Parramatta. Fees must be paid in full to be considered paid, partial payments are not accepted. Note that enrolment at QED Education is only confirmed once term fees are paid in full, there are no exceptions to this unless specifically approved by management.
FEES AND TRIAL PERIODS
All new students to QED Education are entitled to a TWO WEEK OBLIGATION FREE TRIAL. If a student DOES NOT CONTINUE after the two week period, they will not be required to pay any fees. If a student DOES CONTINUE, the trial period will be billable at the normal rate and will be included in the invoice. Students who commence tuition after the first week of term will only be billed for the weeks they are enrolled (commencing on their first trial lesson.)

NOTICE OF DISENROLLMENT
If you are disenrolling from a course at QED Education, you must do so in writing by sending an email to [email protected] or in person at QED Education reception at L1 269 Church St Parramatta.

CREDITS AND REFUNDS
All payments are non-refundable barring exceptional circumstances. Personal holidays, general sickness or extra curricular activities will not be discounted from invoices. Where applicable and agreed by QED Education, all discounts and promotions will be included on the next issued invoice for the client.
You are expected to behave in a respectable and conscientious manner towards all students and staff as part of your enrolment or trial period at QED Education. If inappropriate behaviour is exhibited and especially if it persists, QED Education reserves the right to cancel your enrolment or trial.
Students at QED Education are expected to attend all of their scheduled lessons as part of their term enrolment, and complete assigned coursework regularly and in a timely manner. While make-up lessons may be available if there is room in another class, this should be a last resort and QED Education cannot guarantee that this will always be possible. It is up to the parent or guardian to contact QED reception by phone or in person to discuss options regarding absenteeism.
You agree that you (and/or your parent or guardian) will not approach QED’s teachers or workshop tutors to provide you with private tutoring services at any time. Note that students are always welcome and encouraged to ask QED’s workshop tutors for help during the defined workshop hours.
