Terms & Conditions for Members
Veema CPD Subscription
We currently offer two subscription models. The fee you pay varies depending on the package you choose and your type of school. You are only allowed to take part in events (online or face-to-face) that form part of your subscription. There is the option for members to purchase additional add-ons to the CPD events and resources we advertise on our website. Veema will always notify you of such events and new offerings.
When contacting Veema you will need to let us know you are a member school so we can apply any discount to the price we quote.
CPD Events: Online & Face-to-Face
Veema will invite you to register for CPD events by email. We also promote events and courses on our social media platforms. For paid events, Veema will send confirmation of your booking once payment is successfully received. The preferential rates you enjoy depend on your membership subscription. Veema reserves the right to change this amount at any time. Discounts for online and face-to-face training only apply to our School Leaders Membership Package. At the start of a training session, all participants must agree to Veema’s Housekeeping and Ground Rules on:
• Being present
• Switching off mobile phones
• Muting microphones when not talking
During a live event, participants are responsible for turning off notifications on all electronic devices that may interfere with a session. Veema reserves the right and without liability to cancel an event if there are too few bookings or for other reasons beyond our control. We will, of course, endeavour to give adequate notice of any cancellation. Only registered delegates from your school with your membership domain can attend Veema events. Unregistered delegates will not be granted access. Veema reserves the right to postpone an event to another date and time. If you cannot attend a paid event/s we will refund you any money you have paid.
Force Majeure Event means any circumstance not within a party’s reasonable control, including unexpected transportation issues such as flight cancellation, bad weather or industrial action If a party is prevented, hindered or delayed and so cannot perform any of its obligations under this agreement by a Force Majeure Event (Affected Party), the Affected Party shall not be in breach of this agreement or otherwise liable for any such failure or delay in the performance of such obligations. The time for the performance of such obligations shall be extended accordingly.
Cost of Training
Prices vary for all our face-to-face and online events depending on the type and duration of the programme we are offering as well as the experience and expertise of the consultant delivering the programme. For our School-Based subscription package, members receive a 20% discount for any bespoke training booked with Veema. Veema will discuss the various options you have during the pre-training consultation meeting. This offering does not apply to our Practitioner Membership.
Booking Bespoke Training
Dates must be agreed at least 3 months in advance. Veema has the right to change the trainer or amend a booking if for any unforeseen circumstance we are unable to commit to the agreed date. We will also let you know in writing and provide you with alternative options including a full refund. If member schools need to change, cancel or amend the dates of a training event/s, we will endeavour to fulfil and transfer this to another date. Refunds are not available. Member schools will incur the cost of all travel and accommodation costs if an event is cancelled or postponed by member schools. Veema cannot be held responsible for this and will not pay any costs incurred.
All resources and material provided remain the intellectual property of Veema and so must not be sold or used for any paid training events you might run.

Payment of Membership Fee
Members agree to pay the membership fee on receipt of the invoice. Membership Fees are non-refundable. Membership is activated and benefits become available once payment has been received by Veema into the correct bank account. Member schools are responsible for all related transfer fees and bank charges. Annual membership fees are invoiced in Sterling (GBP). The published membership fees do not include VAT. Where Veema is required to comply with VAT requirements, VAT will be added to invoices. Members should include all bank charges in the payment of membership fees. This can be done by indicating that the sender will be responsible for all charges. Your bank may require you to tick the “OUR” box on the payment form. Veema cannot predict what bank or intermediary bank charges might be. Veema offers a 14-day cooling-off period. If membership is cancelled within 14 days of the date of payment, the membership fee will be refunded minus any administrative fees. Veema will not refund transfer fees incurred by the applicant nor be responsible for transfer fees incurred during the return of funds.
Membership Renewal Membership
Renewal notifications will be sent to the primary account holder’s email address with a follow-up reminder a month before the deadline. Member renewals are due before 31 August of each year. After this date, Veema will assume nonrenewal and membership will be automatically cancelled.
The membership year runs from the 01 September to 31 August. However, for 2020-21 this will start on 01 November and run to 31 August with a three-month free trial. A reduced rate has been applied for this year. The membership fee will not be pro-rated for membership within the current academic year. To create their member account, members must provide an email address that will be the primary contact for Veema communications. One account holder’s email address is permitted per member. Member schools will keep the member account up-to-date and inform Veema of any change to the account holder’s email address.
