COURSES FOR GROUPS
The school offers courses lasting from 1 to 4 weeks, for groups of students who have the same educational objectives. The content of the course can be agreed with the group, which must be as homogenous as possible in terms of acquired skills, the objectives to be achieved, and language’s competencies. The lessons may be held in Italian, or in the language of the group: in this case the school may deal with the recruitment of an interpreter, whose cost will be borne by the group.
How does it work
Individuals/schools/companies/institutions/agencies interested in the execution of a group’s course, must fill-in the attached form and email it to the school office. The secretariat will send a proposal with the costs and the program of the course, for the evaluation and acceptance/modification by the group. When all the details will have been established, it will be signed a mutual commitment for the realization of the course.
Renunciations and cancellations
For cancellations made by registered letter or certified mail by the group to the school, no later than forty days prior to the start of the course, the school will refund 50% of the amount paid, save for a bank or postal charges. After this time there will be no refunds.
If the school decides to cancel the course, the registration fee will be refunded in full, including the bank or postal charges. Even in the case of cancellation by the school, this will be notified no later than 40 days before the date.
Visits and extracurricular activities
Some technical or cultural visits (laboratories, companies, museums …) could be part of the lesson hours. Other extra-curricular cultural visits may be organized upon request of the group, which will bear the costs for transportation, entrance fees, guides.
Consumable materials and tools for personal use
The school provides the necessary materials to the course, included in the course’s fee (excluding gold, platinum, palladium and precious stones: the school provides silver and other non-precious metals, and natural and synthetic stones).
The materials will be specified each time, on the basis of the contents of the course. Tools for personal use are borne by the participants, who can take them or buy them in town. Alternatively, the school can provide a personal kit, upon payment of a security deposit, which is refunded at the end of the lessons, after the return of the complete kit. Lost or damaged tools will be reimbursed to the school.
Payment of the attendance fee
50% on booking and the rest once the course has started, in line with the instructions provided by the secretary’s office.
LESSONS IN INDIVIDUAL SUBJECTS
The school offers everybody the opportunity to attend cycles of lessons on the theoretical subjects in its teaching programmes with a contained weekly commitment and without having to attend the complete courses. History of ancient and contemporary jewellery, gemmology, technical drawing and rendering are the subjects on offer. Participants purchase a “package” of one or more subjects and go to lessons at the times set out in the school calendar for a year or six months. For information on the duration, contents and cost of the lessons, contact the secretaries’ office.
