CME Fees for Candidates working

within the West Midlands Region

For Candidates working in the West Midlands:

The basic cost of our version of the Trinity CME for all candidates is £700. This price includes all mentoring, assessment and online learning services provided by CPD Centre West Midlands, as well as the £100 candidate certification fee charged by Trinity College London.

Distance Learners:

We are happy to consider distance learners from all parts of the UK for the Trinity CME. There are two distance learning options, one is to complete the course entirely remotely, using the online learning materials and meeting with your mentor via skype or telephone. This option costs £700. The second option is to have one or two face-to-face visits with your mentor, including should you wish, an observation of your teaching. In this circumstance in addition to the £700, a travel surcharge would apply to cover the cost of the mentor’s travel. Of course if you choose to travel to the West Midlands yourself to meet with your mentor, no travel surcharge would apply.

Terms & Conditions:

1. All fees must be paid in advance in one lump sum.

2. All learners who successfully apply for the Trinity CME are required to hold an enhanced DBS disclosure issued not more than 12 months prior to the date of application. Learners who do not meet this criteria will be required to apply for a DBS through their employer or an umbrella company. Acceptance onto the programme will not be officially confirmed until the DBS is returned.

3. All learners must complete the Trinity CME within 24 months of registration. In exceptional circumstances (eg medical emergency or pregnancy), learners may apply for a deferment from the programme, which will be considered on a case-by-case basis. No fees will be refunded in the case of deferment, however no additional fees will be charged on recommencement of the course.

4. If a learner wishes to cancel their place on the programme at any point after being invoiced for their fees, the following terms apply:

  • Cancellation immediately after invoicing and before commencing any programme activity: £200 cancellation fee (£500 returned)
  • Cancellation after commencement of programme activity (e.g. once mentoring and/or assessment has begun) minimum charge of £200 plus additional charges calculated on a case-by-case basis in proportion to the amount of activity that has taken place.
  • Cancellation after entire portfolio has been submitted £700 charge (no refund).
  • Cancellation 12 - 24 months from the date of registration £700 charge (no refund).

5. Any learner who wishes to cancel their place or withdraw from the programme must contact the centre directly in writing at cme@hillcrest.dudley.sch.uk. The centre will not accept verbal notifcation of withdrawal or cancellation, neither will we accept written notification sent to a mentor.
