Fee Collection

The financial operations of the AITC relies on the prompt payment of fees. The AITC offer a range of payment options that offer greater efficiency for the AITC while providing convenience to families.

Parents unable to make payments prior to the due date must make arrangements with the Principal prior to the commencement of each Semester. While the AITC is supportive of families in difficult financial circumstances, it is still an expectation that families make every effort to pay the full fees and that families respond to all communications in this regard.

In cases where reminder notices are persistently ignored or arrangements to meet the arrears are not met, the AITC will pursue legal action to recover outstanding fees and ongoing enrolment will be reviewed.

All payment arrangements cannot be assumed as continuing and must be reviewed annually.

Notice of Withdrawal

The AITC requires one full term’s written notice to the Principal of a student’s withdrawal from the school, or fees in lieu of notice will be charged.

Where a student is withdrawn from the AITC to commence a full-time apprenticeship, a fee of $1000 will also be charged.
