    Did CAB help you write the letter re misrepresentation?
    If there has been Misrepresentation you should be able to rescind the contract.
    On rescission both parties are put back into the position they were before contracting, which would involve Trades Gateway refunding the finance house.
    Can you post up that letter, and any response you have had?

    Once you inform him you no longer wish to proceed it will be interesting to know what happens please tell us it may help others,
    You could ask for something in writing regarding the course if this is forthcoming that to could help others.
    Personally I think you have done the right thing if he turns up record it all will show them up

    it all sounded too good to be true''
    then, sadly, it probably is.

    He mentioned having 1,500 applicants a week, of which he could only put 8 forward to the college, who would then select only 4
    That does sound like rubbish to me, but the instances of complaints we see on here will only be a very teeny tiny percentage of those who go on to take the courses, and presumably some do so very successfully else the business couldn't still be functioning.

    Have you investigated training in another way, doing a course at college in the evenings ?

    If he's coming tonight, will you ask him about the loan agreement a bit, how much the interest rate is, how long it is payable over, what happens if you need to cancel, and who the loan is with - specifically is he wanting you to take out a consumer credit agreement for a loan. I'd quite like to know how he explains it.

    By way of example - you could look at college part time courses - http://www.hlcollege.ac.uk/Courses/pt_electrical.html

    Worthwhile starting place to look at further education is http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...tudent-Finance

    I also signed up to trades gateway and almost half way through the course it states I have to do pre attendance tests. Failed twice and will not let me go any further It doesn't say how many u scored or how many you need to pass but has just come up failed. Emailed the tutors who are refusing to send me any more books and cannot help me with the pre attendance test as they say it is systematically completed. My point is how many more people are in the same boat as me. Have I just been robbed with all the money I have paid so far and have to continue to pay. Any help or advice will be much appreciated x

    Thank you for your webmail.

With the paper based test you will receive , we can give you all the support necessary to complete it should you wish so. I do hope this answers your query.

    yes and that paper takes about 40 hours of your time to complete and is extreme disigned to fustrate you so you quit the course but still end up paying for it. total joke thieves.
