Full membership of the Out of School Alliance runs for 12 months and needs to be renewed annually.
For new members or renewals that are made after 20th September 2022, your membership will automatically renew on your membership date next year.
If your renewal is due between 20th September 2022 and 19th September 2023, you need to log in to the website and renew manually.
We will remind you via email when your membership is due for renewal.
If your membership has not yet expired, your new subscription will run for one year from the end of your current subscription period.
If your membership has already expired, your new subscription will run for one year from today if you are renewing online, or one year from the date we receive your payment.
You can cancel your membership subscription at any time before your next payment is due by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Your Membership Subscription
Our membership subscription has been developed to fairly reflects that our diverse sector is made up of lots of different types of businesses, both single setting providers and multi-site providers. This new model speaks to our commitment and values over consistency, fairness and transparency.
Your subscription rate will change as your business grows so that each operational setting will contribute to the membership. OOSA is a ‘buyers club’; you put your subscription contribution in so that when you need to, you can draw out from the resources available. That means that if you’re potentially ‘drawing out’ for multiple settings, it’s important that you’re putting in for all of them. We have scaled up the contribution for multi-site providers, but we have developed a pricing structure that we are confident does not penalise you for growth.
Our membership operates as a ‘subscription’ model, where your annual subscription will automatically be collected. We will of course remind you one month before that subscription will be collected, but this will reduce the administration of your membership for both you and us and most of our members tell us that they thought it always was this way!
Those of you who have multiple settings will also be given a log in for each setting that you operate. That way your setting team can ‘self-serve’ our factsheets, information and activity ideas and the newsletter will also be sent directly to them as well, so your team will have access to information and support directly.
Please ensure that you take out membership in the correct membership category. We reserve the right to undertake suitable checks on publicly available information to confirm you are in the right membership category. Your continued membership is contingent on this as outlined in our Terms and Conditions.
