I hereby accept that all reasonable precautions will be taken to ensure the safety and welfare of myself/my child/my ward during the centre’s hours. I shall be responsible for the payment of medical and/or hospital fees in the event of an injury, which CANNOT be ascribed to negligence on the part of the training centre or staff member responsible.
I cede my powers as parent/guardian to the head of the training centre or their representative should medical treatment/surgery be deemed necessary for my child/ward. To the best of my knowledge, my child/ward has a clean bill of health and can thus participate in all activities.
If I am unable (in the event of an accident or illness) to give permission for medical attention I cede my powers to the head of the training centre or their representative. To the best of my knowledge I am healthy and can thus participate in all activities.

If a student is absent for any reason, they must call the reception and inform the receptionist of the reason for their absence. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure, upon their arrival, that all notes, projects and assignments are collected from the relevant lecturer and that any missed work is caught up before the next class. SEWAFRICA cannot provide additional time for students who are absent. It is a short course and students are expected to commit themselves fully for the duration of the course.
Students who arrive late disrupt the teaching and learning process for other students who are prompt. For this reason, late students are not permitted to enter lecture rooms. Once the lecture has begun, students who are late may not enter. Students who are absent for an exam or test or on the day an assignment is due need to submit a Doctor’s note verifying that the student was not fit to attend on that day. Clinic cards will not be accepted.
Students will be expected to clean up the mess that they make in the lecture rooms. Brooms and dustbins are provided for this purpose. The term housekeeping is taken from the curriculum and is related to safety and hygiene (and of course - consideration) in the workspace. Cleaning will be limited to the working space and the results of their participation in the lesson – threads, fabric off cuts, pattern board cuttings, etc. The students are expected to clean up as they would if working at home. Failure to do so will be taken as contravention of SEWAFRICA rules and dealt with accordingly.
There is a break room in SEWAFRICA. Students are requested to clear their rubbish and keep noise levels down as other classes may be in progress. There are several places in the area where students can purchase food. Students may only eat and drink in the break room. No food or drink is allowed anywhere else in the building.
Use of Cell Phones
Use of cell phones is not permitted during class time. Students may not make or receive calls or messages. Students may not use their cell phone to play music. If a student is found using a cell phone anywhere except the break room, they may be asked to leave and may be subject to disciplinary action.
Building Access Cards
Students will not be permitted to enter the building unless they have their student card. If a student loses their card, they must inform the office immediately and pay R50 for a new card. The security personnel are not employed by SEWAFRICA, as a tenant of the building SEWAFRICA must abide by the rules of the landlord. Student cards and keys must be handed in by the students on the last day of each course. If a student is absent on the last day it is their responsibility to return the card and keys within 7 days of the last day of the course.
A student is only registered when all forms are completed with the accompanying documentation and the fee paid in full. No student will be permitted to start a course until fees are paid in full and all documentation submitted.
Proof of payment must show student first and surname and/or the student number. If a reference cannot be traced back to a student, it is treated as a non-payment and the student will not be registered or a space booked on a course.
Equipment and materials
A learner is responsible for ensuring that all equipment and materials supplied are brought into class, students are responsible for replacing lost or damaged equipment. A kit is supplied to each student – any change of fabric, thread colour, etc will be to the students’ expense. The materials etc are for training purposes only. If the fabric or colour is not to your liking, you are welcome to purchase alternative fabric but SEWAFRICA cannot accommodate all preferences.
May interrupt normal scheduled class times. Lecturers will either prepare for cutting activities in this time or the college will extend the class to another day. Students will be informed one full week before of a change of scheduled time due to load shedding. If a student cannot attend the official extended times this time cannot be made up or re-scheduled with the lecturer.
A set of keys are presented to each student at the beginning of the course, these keys must be used by the student to access their machine box each week. SEWAFRICA is not responsible for any loss or damage to items in the machine box. If a set of keys are lost, they can be replaced at a cost of R50.
Attendance at the course may only be cancelled in writing at least one full month prior to the course commencing. Cancellation of a course is subject to a R 400 not refundable administration fee. If no written confirmation is received or if it is received after the full month cut-off, then the full amount paid for the course will be forfeited. If a student has registered and paid for a course but does not turn up for the scheduled course dates no refund will be given. All the fees are forfeited as a space has been reserved for the student. If a student cannot attend a course and wishes to be moved to another later course, this can only be done in writing within one full month before the course. A transfer administration fee of R 200 will be charged for the transfer. Any amounts outstanding as a result of the administration fee must be paid in full before the start of the course.
Children and Visitors
No children or adults, who are not students of SEWAFRICA are permitted in the classrooms nor may they be in any other area of SEWAFRICA (including reception) while a student is in class.
A Certificate of Attendance will be provided at the end of the course. The certificate will only be issued in the year that the course was completed, any requests made in the years following the year the course was presented will be charged at R 50.
