Warning to Members – Teaching resources – A SCAM?

The Association has become aware of the behaviour of a company, who run a web-site containing the term “teaching resources”, have caused considerable concern within the teaching profession.

Their web site offers teachers a chance to ‘trial’ PSHE resources. However, only in the very (easily missed) small print of the terms and conditions is it explained that, after the 14 day trial, schools will be automatically invoiced for a two year contract with the company. This will only be stopped if the teacher who requested the trial writes directly to the company to cancel before the 14 days have expired. The invoices can be for many hundreds of pounds, with the threat of debt recovery if they are not paid.

Members are advised that they should only take the offer of their FREE 14-day trial if they are fully aware of legal consequences of failing to cancel that trail period.
