‘Wine Appreciation’ Course [2nd – 23rd July 2018] (4 Week course: Mondays: 7-9pm)

Wine is integral to the culture & lifestyles of so many European countries. France, for example, is the leading producer of wines in the world. A visitor to Spain is more likely to hear the invocation of the country’s great artists, writers and poets than anything else, and it is this same love of life, culture and the arts that has been poured into Spain’s wine making tradition for years. Similar can be said of Italy and its relationship with the grape. A little knowledge about wine is actually easy to build.

At CTA the aim of the ‘Wine Appreciation Course’ is to help participants get to grips with what is on offer in the Irish wine market, and how to get the best from a bottle of wine. Myths are challenged, prejudices are confronted, and all proceedings take place in a relaxed and sociable atmosphere. There is a strong emphasis on tasting, as we believe that this is the best way to learn about wine. The course fee is €160. A deposit of €80 required upon registration.

Registration for this course is now OPEN! To express your interest in attending this course or for more information, please contact CTA by sending us an email at info@clonmeltuitionacademy.ie 

This course is for anyone (over 18yrs) who enjoys wine and wants to learn more about wines and the various cultures attached to the wine industry !

COMING 2018!

————————————————————————————————————————–

Fee Structure:

Payment:

Fees for second level grinds/tuition are payable monthly in advance to Clonmel Tuition Academy, either in cash, by cheque, Paypal, Standing Order, Electronic Funds Transfer (account details available upon request) or you can now pay online at https://clonmeltuitionacademy.ie/booking-forms/ (probably the quickest and easiest option). Each invoice must be paid on or before the first lesson of the month for that month.

Discounts:

For grinds/second level tuition a 10% discount is offered if fees are paid in full at the beginning of the year for the full year. The full payment discount (10%) is applicable if payment is made in the first two terms. Therefore, after the second term, there will be no discount option for full payment. There will be a 5% discount for each of any siblings enrolled on our second level courses. There is also 5% discount for any additional grinds subjects taken. For all ‘beginners’ language classes (Adult & Children) there is a 10% sibling discount. There will be a 5% discount for each of any siblings enrolled on our Supervised study programmes and any of our Intensive Leaving/Junior Cert. Revision programmes.

Grinds Class example:

  • Classes are €990 per student for the full year (€891 after 10% discount)

Notice & cancellations:

A minimum of 1 months’ notice is required to cancel a grinds class enrolment at any time during the year otherwise the deposit cannot be refunded, but we will provide a full refund for prepaid classes. Cancellations should be evidenced in writing and we will provide written or emailed confirmation that we have received your cancellation request within one working day. Deposits for other courses will only be refunded where CTA needs to cancel a course.

Refunds:

We will allow for a student who paid for the full year in advance to attend a grind class for three weeks after which if they feel this class is not suitable for them we will either transfer the remaining fees to a different class, if the student so wishes, or give a refund of remaining fees for the year. Students paying monthly for grinds classes are automatically enrolled for the following month unless their parent/guardian cancels enrolment within the required notice period.

For any of the 10 week language courses (Kids/Adults) and the Sign language courses full payment is required prior to the start date of the course. For the English Language (IELTS) course there is the ‘staged payment’ option. Unfortunately there will be no refunds for students who decide to opt out of any of these courses mid-course. This is due partly because of the costs involved in running the courses and also to be fair to the students already enrolled on the courses and those on the ‘wait-list’. Whilst these courses are designed to be fun and engaging, (particularly the Kids language classes), there is an academic element. If you feel you, or your child (as the case may be) might decide to opt out after a couple of lessons it might be best not to enrol on the course in the first instance.

For the Supervised Study programmes one months notice in writing is required to opt out of the programme for a refund of remaining fees paid. For the Intensive Revision courses you can cancel your enrolment and get a full refund of fees up to 14 days prior to the Course start date.

All of our Language programmes and CTA Grammar & Maths Booster Courses require a minimum of 10 registrants in order to take place. Whilst we expect to reach this minimum in all courses, in the event that there are not enough participants registered by the Sunday evening before the first day of the course, we reserve the right to cancel the course and process a full refund of fees paid to the student/parent.

No tuition fee refunds are given for any classes missed by the student. Classes missed by the Tutor will absolutely be rescheduled and prior notice given.
