Competency Assessments *
For 2019-2020, the TLA has introduced competency-based assessments to ensure members are ready for each stage of their learning journey. Currently, these are "basic" to  indicate completion of the beginners course and ready for the main group. The next is "intermediate" which is for members wishing to spar/undertake more advanced learning.Whilst no one likes to think about 'failure' of these assessments (and re-assessment is encouraged), should this occur and you feel that you no longer wish to continue at TLA it is unlikely we will be able to give you a membership fee refund as this is paid out to 3rd parties fairly quickly.
Courtesy and Sensitivity *
As a member of the club, you will be expected to show courtesy and politeness at all times to all members of the TLA, especially during lessons. All members are expected to show sensitivity and maturity in the language they use to others, and treat all as you would wish to be treated yourself. You don't need to agree with others, and your views are your own, but TLA 'space' should be inclusive, welcoming, and safe - both in formal sessions and in TLA social events.
