Terms and Conditions for participation in the Jamie's Ministry of Food Australia Cooking Course

Definitions of words and phrases used in these Terms and Conditions are set out at the end of this document.

  1. General

    These Terms and Conditions govern participation in the Classes. Participants' rights under these Terms and Conditions are in addition to and do not in any way limit their rights under Australian Privacy Law, which may not be lawfully excluded. All other terms, conditions, guarantees and liabilities which are not expressly included in these Terms and Conditions are excluded.

  2. Bookings and Payments

    1. Bookings are non-transferrable

    2. All payments are non-refundable

  3. Participation

    1. Bookings

    2. Participants must arrive no later than 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of the Class. TGF cannot accommodate

    3. Participants must follow the Food Handling and Hygiene Procedures and all reasonable instructions issued by TGF personnel from time to time. TGF recommends that each Participant wears practical clothing.

    4. Each Participant agrees and acknowledges that they are at least 12 years of age. Participants between 12 and 16 must be under the direct supervision of a parent/guardian or carer at all times during the Classes. Any parent/guardian or carer supervising a child under the age of 16 must agree, on behalf of the Participant, to the application of these Terms and Conditions. If a parent/guardian or carer wishes to participate in the Classes while supervising a Participant under the age of 16, then a separate booking and payment is required for that parent/guardian or carer.

    5. Participants who require a carer due to special needs must ensure a separate booking and payment is arranged for the carer. The same carer must attend all Classes in the Course for health and safety purposes. It is preferable for a person with special needs to arrive 15 minutes before the first Class to ensure the Jamie's Ministry of Food trainers have adequate time to discuss any issues that may arise for the Participant during the course.

    6. Any Participant who has been or suspects they may be ill, or becomes ill, in the 48 hours prior to any booked Class with any communicable diseases (e.g. colds and flu; diarrhoea, vomiting) and other infections must not attend the relevant Class. This is necessary to protect all Participants as these sorts of illnesses can be spread through food.

    7. A Participant may be refused admission or required to leave a Class if any member of TGF personnel suspects that the Participant is under the influence of alcohol or any other substance, is ill with a communicable disease or is engaging in inappropriate behaviour (as determined by TGF personnel).

    8. Participants must follow all instructions issued by TGF and TGF personnel for the preparation of the Meals and the transportation, storage, re-heating and consumption of the Meals. Participants are solely responsible for the transportation, proper storage and re-heating of all Meals.

    9. Each Participant is responsible for advising the relevant Council at the time of booking of any food allergies that the Participant may have. Classes involve cooking with a variety of ingredients including potentially allergenic foods (including without limitation nuts and eggs). Any Participant with a food allergy must consult with TGF personnel both before and during any Class prior to handling or consuming any foods.

    10. Certificates of completion will only be issued to Participants who complete the Course.
