3. Student fee protection policy
As required by the New Zealand Government Family Planning has placed more than sufficient funds to cover all fees received from individuals over $500 in a static trust held with Public Trust. This means that in the unlikely event Family Planning has to close before the completion of your course, the remainder of your student fees will be protected.
This arrangement has been accepted by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority as meeting the requirements of the Education Act 1989 and the Student Fee Protection Rules 2013.
4.1 Course cancellation by Family Planning
Family Planning reserves the right to cancel or reschedule courses if numbers are insufficient or for any other reason at its discretion. A full refund of the course fee will be made if Family Planning cancels a course. In the event of a cancellation you agree that, apart from a full refund of any fees paid, Family Planning is not liable to you for any other costs incurred by you in relation to the cancelled course. Non-attendance does not constitute grounds for a refund.
4.2 Withdrawal or cancellation by student
Health promotion - Courses for teachers and community workers
A full refund less an administration fee of 10% total course fee, will be made for cancellations received in writing more than ten working days prior to the first day of the course. Cancellation any time less than ten working days prior to the first day of the course, or withdrawal during the course, will incur the full course fee unless exceptional circumstances exist. In such cases you must apply in writing to the Health Promotion Area Manager in the area the course is being run and provide appropriate evidence of the exceptional circumstances.
All fee paying courses - a refund of 75% of the total course fee will be made for cancellations received in writing more than ten working days prior to the first day of the course. Cancellation any time less than ten working days prior to the first day of the course, or withdrawal during the course, will incur the full course fee unless exceptional circumstances exist. In such cases you must apply in writing to the Director Clinical Training and Development (email@example.com) and provide appropriate evidence of the exceptional circumstances.
Substitution of Learners - if a student who was originally accepted for a course is unable to attend, due to exceptional circumstances, a substitute student from the same organisation may be accepted provided Family Planning has been notified in advance and that the student meets all eligibility requirements, pre-requisites and conditions for attendance at the course.
Ministry of Health courses- an administration fee will apply for non-attendance on the day or if cancellations are made within 72 hours of the course date. The fee will vary depending on the course.
5. Attendance Requirements for Clinical Training
Attendance at all the specified hours of a course and completion of all required assessments and clinical placements, within the specified time period, is required for either a certificate of attendance or certificate of completion of a course. This is the responsibility of the learner and no extensions will be granted unless exceptional circumstances exist. In the case of non-completion of the requirements for the Cervical Smear Takers Course, the National Screening Unit will be notified.
6. Collection and Use of Your Information

The information will be used:
