Some people who have left training contracts have said that they have had to pay back any exam fees etc.
But on the ICAEW website it says [quote]REPAYMENT OF TRAINING FEES
Our lawyers have advised against including a clause in the standard training contract requesting the student to repay training fees if the contract is terminated. This type of clause may not be enforceable as a court of law could rule that it restricts the ability of the student to change their employment.[/quote]
