Terms and Conditions

Professional Learning Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions have recently been updated for AISWA's new website payment system as of 21 September, 2017.

By registering via the member area your PL hours will be recorded in line with Teachers Registration Board (TRB) requirements and reporting.  AISWA does not pass on any of this data to the TRB on the participants' behalf. It is the participants' responsibility to download a copy of these hours for their own record and to provide to the TRB if required.

Cancellation fees will apply to all PL courses as per our terms and conditions for registering:

  • Price includes GST.
  • Payment: Please do not send any money. All participants can elect to pay online via credit card. Non-member registrations are not confirmed until payment is received. Alternatively, participants from member schools may elect for their school to be invoiced. Schools will be sent an invoice by AISWA after the permitted cancellation date has passed and payment will not be accepted on the day. As your school has approved your access to this site it remains the school's responsibility to advise AISWA if you leave the school or have not been approved to attend the PL. The school is responsible for any fees associated with the PL courses for which you have registered.
  • PL hours: Your PL hours will be credited after the event. To receive these PL hours participants must sign-in on the provided participant list to confirm their attendance on the day.
  • Attendee swaps: If you wish to attend an event in the place of another registered attendee from your school on the day of the event you are welcome to do so. However, the PL hours will not be allocated to your account so you should keep your own records and consider adding them to your TRB record of PL on the TRB website.
  • Walk Ins: If you do Walk In without pre-registering you need to speak with AISWA staff before attending the PL so you can be registered correctly through the website and the T&C are agreed to by you. Do Not just use the Sign In sheet as record of attendance and sit down
  • Cancellations will only be accepted via this website and if you have issues doing this please contact the event organiser as displayed on the event listing in the Professional Learning calendar
  • Compliance with the terms of the AISWA IT Resources Acceptable Use Policy is a requirement when enrolling for AISWA professional learning events. 
  • Cancellation notice: Cancellation without charge is accepted up to and including the 'cancellation permitted' date as listed on each event page on the AISWA website.
  • Generally, for PL events run at AISWA (in-house), we require 3 business days’ notice for cancellation. Should you cancel after the 'cancellation permitted' date has passed for any reason (other than very exceptional circumstances approved by the AISWA Executive Director) or fail to attend the full course fee will be charged
  • For events run at external venues please check your registration notification and the event details for cancellation details.
  • Should the situation arise where insufficient registrations are received for an event or the presenter is unavailable, AISWA reserves the right to cancel the event up to the close of registration date and will refund any payments received by that date. We will notify attendees if this is to occur. If you are booking flights or accommodation please keep this in mind.
  • For free events, a non-attendance fee of $25 may apply.
