Costs & refunds
All fees are shown in pounds (£). Fees for online courses are non-refundable, as immediate access is available to all the relevant course material.
Lunch & refreshments
The fee for each course covers not only training and course materials, but also a light lunch (all-day workshops only) and refreshments during the day.
New SfEP Entry-Level Members and Intermediate Members are entitled to a training voucher worth £20 from the Dorothy Mitchell Smith Memorial Fund to help defray the costs of one SfEP course in their first year in those grades. If you wish to use a voucher when booking a course, please contact the office directly.
If, less than a calendar month before a workshop is held, you find that you can't make the workshop you've booked, you may be able to transfer your booking for that workshop to another date or location. However, a £50 transfer fee will be charged if the transfer is requested within two weeks of the workshop date and the Society is unable to refill your original place.
