- Charges for not attending
All courses are offered free of charge but there will be a charge if you:

This is to maximise the availability and cost-effectiveness of our training programme.
If you can no longer attend the event, you must send an apology email to STSCAP@southtyneside.gov.uk and copy in your manager.
If you are not able to email the us, your manager must let us know on your behalf.
You, or you manager, must let us know if you can't attend at least 2 working days before the course.
If you do not let us know at least 2 days before, you will still be charged.
If you cannot attend on the day of the course, your manager can offer a replacement to go in your place and there will be no charge.
You must let us know by emailing STSCAP@southtyneside.gov.uk before the course begins.
Please note, you or your manager must send an email to STSCAP@southtyneside.gov.uk, a phone call will not be accepted.
