Get it in Writing!

Creating that vital paper trail

Members are strongly advised to obtain written confirmation of all engagements.

Remember that if you do not have a written contract in place, then you will find it hard to recover unpaid fees.

Make sure you:

  • Keep copies of all of your contracts
  • Keep to the terms of the contract: issue invoices on time and give good notice of changed or cancelled  lessons. This will encourage your pupils to keep to their side of the agreement
  • Have contact details for all of your pupils’ parents or carers
  • Include the cancellation policy

Set a notice period for students to inform you when they are moving on.
