A student protection plan ensures that IFT is transparent and clear so that students are aware of measures that are in place to identify and mitigate any risks there may be in relation to the delivery of the Institute’s training programme. Of course different students have differing needs and circumstances, and the courses are also different in nature and commitment. This is taken into account in relation to assessing any risks, and putting measures in place to mitigate any risks.

From time to time it may be necessary to make some changes to the published programme. For example, low recruitment to a course may require its withdrawal or postponement. The protection plan ensures that, should changes be necessary, all measures will be taken to protect the students involved and to ensure that all reasonable efforts are made to enable students to complete the course of study of their choice. The plan also covers changes to advertised courses, how courses can continue in different locations and formats, and/or refund and compensation plans should the institution close.
