School for CEOs Limited is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.


Application and invoicing process

To apply, send us a completed application using the form provided on the School for CEOs website at We confirm places on a first-come, first served basis and encourage you to apply early to secure your place. We will review your application to confirm your eligibility and suitability for the programme you have selected.

Assuming you are successful, we will contact you within one week to confirm your programme date. From this point, you are firmly enrolled on the programme: we will reserve your accommodation (Vital Few only) and begin preparing your individual joining instructions and teaching materials. We will include an invoice in our confirmation and ask you to pay this in full upon receipt.

If accepted, you commit that you will devote sufficient time to any preparation and follow-up work to make full use of the programme. You also commit to ensuring you are free of professional commitments during the programme itself. We provide ample break time for messages, etc during the programme.

No delegate will be accepted at the start of the programme unless their invoice has been paid in full.


Vital Few

A deposit invoice will be issued initially. The balance of the programme fee will be invoiced approximately 6 weeks prior to the programme and is payable upon receipt. If your application is made within 10 weeks of the programme start date, we will invoice you in full.

The Vital Few programme fee includes all tuition, teaching materials, meals, overnight accommodation for 1 night in a single room as appropriate and a single session follow-up coaching/mentoring as appropriate. Delegates are responsible for travel to and from the venue.


Runway is invoiced in full upon application.

The Runway programme fee includes all tuition, teaching materials, meals and, if selected follow-up coaching/mentoring as appropriate. Delegates are responsible for travel to and from the venue. As the programme is non-residential the programme fee does NOT include accommodation.

Substitutions, Postponement and Cancellation

All proposals to substitute, postpone or cancel your enrolment must be made immediately in writing to the School for CEOs. All delegates benefit from the interaction with each other during the programme; high participation is therefore beneficial to all and we would ask you to consider carefully before changing your enrolment.


If you wish to substitute another person in your place, that person must apply and be accepted by the School for CEOs. In such cases the full cancellation fee will be waived and a nominal administration fee levied instead.

Should your substitute cancel this will be considered a cancellation – see below.


You may transfer to another programme date ONCE. If you do transfer to another course the terms of the original invoice will still apply .

If you wish to postpone your enrolment to a later programme, you will need to pay any resulting difference in the fee. In addition, the following scale of charges will apply (times are before the programme start):

  • More than 60 days’ notice: deposit amount for Vital Few or 12.5% for Runway
  • 31-60 days’ notice: 25% charge
  • 11-30 days’ notice: 50% charge
  • 0-10 days’ notice: 80% charge.

Any additional request to postpone will be considered a cancellation – see below.


If you wish to cancel your enrolment altogether, the following scale of charges will apply (times are before the programme start):

  • More than 60 days’ notice: deposit amount for Vital Few or 12.5% of course fee for Runway
  • 31-60 days’ notice: 50% charge
  • 11-29 days’ notice: 80% charge
  • 0-10 days’ notice: 100% charge (no refund).
  • If you are booked to attend a course and you fail to show up on the first day and we have not been notified in writing, then you will incur a full fee.
