  • You should understand that upon payment, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions whilst training at any time with The Actors’ Temple in any location.

  • You should print a copy of these terms and conditions for future reference.

 

Code of Conduct

 

All students at The Actors’ Temple are expected to take responsibility for conducting themselves in a manner that ensures respect and consideration not only for staff and fellow students, but also for the training and the pursuit of excellence therein.

 

  • Your professional behaviour, attendance and contribution to classes will be monitored by all the tutors you come into contact with while training at The Actors’ Temple. Overall conduct will be taken into account in the assessment of all the work undertaken on courses, classes and workshops and for the progression onto the next level of training.

  • You can expect to be treated fairly and reasonably by staff and fellow students, in a safe and courteous working environment and the Actors Temple expects you to act in a civil and responsible way towards others in and outside of the classroom.

  • It also expects your cooperation in maintaining its policies and procedures. The following Actors’ Temple Regulations outline the key points to note.

 

Student Attendance

 

  • All classes must be attended for the full duration. Arriving late for a class or leaving early is not an option.  All tutors have been advised to close the door at the start of the class and to deny access to latecomers.

  • If, due to unavoidable circumstances, a student knows in advance that they will be late then they must let the reception know by calling 020 3004 4537 AND emailing bookings@actorstemple.com at least 24 hours before the start of the class.

  • Absence owing to illness, or other unavoidable circumstances, must be notified to tutor and reception by telephone and email.

  • We do expect full attendance for every class on The Core & Advanced Training. If a student is late or absent for 2 classes in one term they will immediately be under review.

  • Students will be notified in writing that their commitment, attendance, progress and attitude will be reviewed by the course tutor and management.

  • Following the review, a decision will be made on whether it is an option to continue training at The Actors’ Temple, or if necessary a suspension or dismissal from the course.

  • Students will be informed of the outcome of this review by management. Please see disciplinary procedure below.

  • Students who fail to cancel a workout class reservation with more than 24 hours notice will be charged £10. Passes will be suspended until this payment is made. There is no exception.

  • In some circumstances it may be deemed necessary to issue an immediate suspension.

  • Please note that The Actors’ Temple reserves the right to refuse the services (Courses or classes) offered to an individual student at any time if, in the opinion of the tutors and management team, they feel the presence of that student has a detrimental effect on other students and environment of The Actors’ Temple as a whole.
