We cannot offer refunds for cancellations due to circumstances outside our control; including adverse weather conditions, transportation issues, major incidents or industrial action. We will not be liable for any other costs incurred including (for example) travel charges or any consequential damages, even if we were advised of these costs.

Accessibility and special dietary requirements

We are responsive to your requirements so if you have any special accessibility requirements please contact so that we can make reasonable adjustments to enable you to get the most from our course, prior notice of at least 1 week is required to enable us to cater for your needs.

Unless otherwise stated all scheduled IoF training courses include refreshments and lunch. The attendee must inform the IoF Scotland team by email at of any special dietary requirements. We cater for vegetarian, vegan, medically recommended and religious restrictive diets only. Please note IoF use external providers for all catering purposes and do not accept liability for any failure to meet special dietary requirements.

While we endeavour to cater for a range of dietary requirements are committed to ensuring the safety of our delegates who have any allergy to nuts, peanuts or seeds we cannot guarantee that our food does not contain traces of nuts, peanuts or seeds. Although we ask our suppliers to ensure that any foods known to contain nuts/peanuts/seeds or their derivatives are suitably labelled, it is impossible to guarantee that products believed not to contain these are 100% free from peanuts/nuts/seeds. This is due to suppliers increasingly stating that products are not free from nut contamination due to possible airborne contamination. If you allergy is severe please be aware the food provided via our suppliers to other delegates may contain traces of nuts, peanuts or seeds. You can download our allergy advice here.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email respectively in good time (at least 1 week in advance of the course start date) to allow for your needs to be catered for.

Other terms

IoF Scotland does not accept responsibility for attendees’ personal belongings or valuables, for example laptops or communications devices, brought to courses.  These remain the responsibility of the individual attendees.

IoF Scotland reserves the right to remove any attendee from their course should their behaviour be deemed inappropriate.  In such event, no refund of course fees or other costs will be made.
