    Frequently Asked Membership Questions

    When do the exclusive member teaching resources go live

    At the beginning of each month, Ross will upload the latest exclusive member resource to download. You will be able to download the resource until the next month, so don't miss out.

    No, you'll always have access to the resources you've purchased. Once you've gone through the checkout after adding the member resource to your basket and completed the transaction (it will show as being free each month if you keep your membership) you'll find the resource in your account to download. There may be times when resources become outdated and we need to clear them from the site. Before doing so @TeacherToolkit will provide 30 days notice via email before these resources are removed from the site to give you the opportunity of saving it to your computer.

    If you've not been able to download a member resource that month and it's been replaced with a new one, unfortunately you've missed out. We want our members to be active on the site, encouraging them to come back and use the website for its resources and teaching ideas, hence why the price is so affordable. It also means that new members can't just sign up, receive all previous exclusive resources and then cancel. This way you get value for money.

    No, sorry. This membership system is designed to encourage loyalty, therefore you can only download each of the exclusive resources for the months that you are a member. In time you might be able to purchase the resource outright after 12 months should it become available to the public and enjoy your 10% discount from being a member.

    There is a cooling off period for @TeacherToolkit Membership as set out in the terms and conditions of sale when you start your membership. However, if you download this month's resource then it will be deemed as though you have benefitted from that month's membership and no refunds for that month will be provided. You can cancel your ongoing subscription by going into your account and cancelling the account before your next renewal to prevent future payments. However, please note you will no longer have access to future member benefits.

    Yes. Watch the following video explaining how you can change your recurring subscription payment method to a new credit/debit card or Direct Debit.
