    • be very wary upon what you see being recently posted on here 😎 regarding KIH.... all is not what it seems...  
    • 1st - all my posts on CAG are made not only in reply to the specific issue the topic starter makes but also in a general matter to advise any future readers upon the related subject - here it is kings interhigh online school. KIH lets take this topic apart shall we so readers know the real situation and the real truth...and underline the correct way to deal with KIH. https://tinyurl.com/ycxb4fk7 Kings Interhigh Online School issues - Training and Apprenticeships - Consumer Action Group - but did not ever reply to the last post.  but the user then went around every existing topic here on CAG about KIH pointing to the above topic and the 'want' to make some form of group  promoting some  'class action' against KIH . then on the 2nd march this very topic this msg is in was created. all remarkably similar eh? all appear to be or state..they are in spain... ....as well as the earlier post flaunting their linkedin ID, (same profile picture) that might have slipped through via email before our admin killed it.., trying to give some kind of legitimacy to their 'credentials' of being 'an honest poster'....oh and some kind of 'zen' website using a .co.uk  address (when in spain- bit like the Chinese ebay sallers) they run ... and now we get the father of the bride ...no sorry...father of a child at the uk-based international school in question posting ...pretending to be not the 'other alf... do you really think people are that stupid..... ................... nope you never owed that in the 1st place... wake up you got had and grabbed the phone - oh no they are taking me to court under UK jurisdiction...and fell for every trick in the book that they would never ever put in writing that could be placed in front of a court operating under their stated uk jurisdiction wherever you live. T&C's are always challengeable under UK law this very site would not exist if it were not for the +£Bn's bank charges reclaiming from 2006> and latterly the +£Bn's of PPI reclaiming both directly stated in the banks' T&C's were they claimed they were legally enforceable ...not!! they lost big time... why? a waste of more money if you've not got a court claim....... why not use them for a good outcome...go reclaim that £1000 refundable deposit you got scammed out of . people please research very carefully ...you never know who any of these people are that are posting about kings interhigh and their 'stories' they could even be one of their online tutors or a shill . don't get taken in. dx      
    • @KingsParent thank you for sharing your experience.  I also tried contacting the CEO but didn’t get very far. Do you mind sharing his contact details?  kind regards   
    • Thank you Rocky for the clarifications though they did cause a problem at first since an original windsccreen ticket was  of a different breach some time before. The current windscreen ticket only states that you were parked there for 6 minutes which is just one minute over the minimum time allowed as the Consideration period. There is no further proof that you parked there for any longer than that is there? More photographs for example? Moving on to the Notice to Keeper-it does not comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4. First there is no parking period mentioned on it. there is the time 20.25 stated which coincides with the W/S ticket but a parking period must have a starting and finishing time-just one time is insufficient to qualify as a parking  period as required in Section 9 [2] [a] . Are there any different photos shown on the NTK comapared to the w/s PCN? Not that that would make a difference as far as PoFA goes since the times required by PoFA should be on the NTK but at the moment Met only appear to show that you stayed there for 6 minutes. Another failure to comply with PoFA is at S9([2][e] where their wording should be "the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid; ". You can see on your NTK that they misssed off the words in brackets. Met cannot therefore transfer the charge from the driver to the keeper. Only the driver is now liable. Then their is the discrepancy with the post code on the NTK  HA4 0EY which differs from the post code on the contract and the Post Office Postcode Finder which both list it as HA4 0FY. As you were not parked in HA4 0EY the breach did not occur. In the same way as if you were caught speeding in the Mall in London, yet you were charged with speeding in Pall mall London [a street nearby] you would be found not guilty since though you were speeding you were not speeding in Pall Mall. I bow to Eric's brother on his reasoning on post 12 re the electric bay abuse  That wording is not listed on their signs nor is there any mention on the contract of any electric charging points at all let alone who can park there or use them. He is quite right too that the entrance sign is merely an invitaion to treat it cannot form a contrct with motorists. Also the contract looks extremely  short no doubt there will be more when we see the full Witness statement. As it stands there is no confirmation from Standard Life [or Lift !] on the contract that Savills are able to act on their behalf. Also most contracts are signed at the end of the contract to prevent either side adding extra points. So their percentage  chance of winning their case would be somewhere between 0.01 and 0.02.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

I was just wondering if you guys n gals could help me. A year ago, I joined the company I'm at as a low level position. Within a month, I was offered a promotion to a better position, higher salary etc... I was performing this duty for the past 11 months, but recently, I was offered yet another promotion to a more senior position and more operational one, I was given the choice to not accept it if I didn't want it, but ofcourtse I chose it as it fitted my skillset perfectly.


The MD even sent me messages over teams to ask if I was "happy with my new position", which ofcourse I was extatic about.


The company found someone to fill my position, so it was all go, but had to wait a few weeks until they started.


2 weeks to go until the "go date" for the new position, I get told that it's no longer available due to "operational problems". This only arose as I insisted that I get a contract or at least a letter of intention along with the offer.


I've now found out that the company can't afford the position, that they've lost alot of business (in the last 2 weeks) and that they are unable to break the new contract with "my replacement".


The only offer on the table was to go back to my old rudimentary position, albeit at the same salary. So basically a totaly demotion and back to square 1 with 0 professional progression.


I've only been with the company for a year so I was wondering:


1) Do I have to take the "lower" position? My feeling is that the oversight of hiring someone overzealously when the role wasn't vacated, isn't a me problem. its a company problem.

2) The old position required me to come into the office once a week, which has 2 caveats. 1) being medical as I can't make it in as circunstances have  chanaged since I was in that position, 2) financials don't allow for travel to work every week.



I met with the MD, Ops Director and my own Director to dispute this and stated that I'd happily filfil the role required to "assist the company temporarily to tide things over", but it appears that they aren't playing ball. I explained why I can't come in weekly, but they again, made it out to be a "me problem", which I explained clearly wasn't as 48 weeks / 52 working from home is a clear indicator that I'll be working from home. The 4 weeks were the intial 4 weeks when I joined... 


I don't quite know how to approach this as I have absolutely been scre**d here, but I still need an income whilst I look further. But until then I'm concerned that they'll insist that I come in "whether you like it or not" and if I can't mark me as "absent" etc... After the way this has all panned out, I wouldn't put anything past them as trust went from 200% to below zero in the space of one meeting.


Any pointers would be handy.


Thanks in advance,

From what I am hearing, there are many companies going through significant financial problems and are having to make changes.


Yes the company have put you in a difficult position, but if the new position is no longer available due to a restructuring, at least you have a job with the salary level maintained.


Remember if you have been employed by a company for less than 2 years, you don't have much in the way of employment rights. So you really need to find a way to attend the office as agreed with managers. If you have health barriers, you have some rights under Equalities Act 2010 with the employers needing to make any reasonable adjustments. Have a look at the Gov.uk Access to Work website.




If you start to become difficult to manage, the employers may then plot to terminate your employment and then you will become a job seeker. And if this coincides with a recession with companies cutting and not recruiting, you could then face being unemployed for an extended period.

We could do with some help from you.

Do you have a contract for this one? I am confused about why it is more difficult to honour your contract for this than the new person - who is presumably on probation and thus easier to dismiss?

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

It was a verbal contract and I have confirmation via email etc.. relating to me starting in the position etc... The onbly reason that I came about all of this is because I asked for a letter of intent or offer to confirm the position, thats when this all came out of the woodwork.

In the absence of a new contract, you revert to the contract you are already on.


I;m not 100% clear from your post which one that would be - the job you had for the first month, or one after that.
