COMPLAINTS POLICY & PROCEDURE

We strive to provide quality in all its activities. If a student feels dissatisfied with some aspect of their dealings with the Centre, it is important that you entitled to complain and to make their concerns known to our staff members.

This guide serves to advise you on the appropriate procedure and to inform you about the process. It is intended to guide situations in which a student (or a group of students) feels that the service that they have received from the Centre is unsatisfactory. Resolving small problems or areas of concern as they arise will often prevent escalation of the problem which could prove difficult to solve. Students are encouraged to raise any issues of dissatisfaction at an early stage so that they can be dealt with efficiently. A student will not be disadvantaged as a result of making a complaint or raising a matter of concern, provided that it is made in good faith.

  • No action may be taken in the case of complaints made anonymously.
  • If a group of learners wishes to make the same complaint, we will require one student to be nominated as a point of contact and representative for all. Please note that you must ensure that you follow the correct procedure, and fulfil the requirements yourself if you wish the complaint to be considered appropriate by the college.
  • Any vexatious or malicious complaints received will be subject to disciplinary action.

Special note: Academic Appeal Procedures

Complaints and appeals relating to Academic Appeals shall not at any stage be considered under this Complaints Procedure. The Complaints Procedure shall not apply to cases in which a student wishes to appeal against an academic decision; in such instances, the student should follow the Appeals Procedure.

Handling of complaints

The Centre aims to handle complaints in a way that:
  • is fair and efficient
  • treats complaints with appropriate seriousness, sympathy and confidentiality
  • facilitates early resolution
  • allows the Centre or a section to learn from the experience

Informal complaint

If possible, a complaint should initially be addressed to the member of staff who is most directly concerned with the issue. To make sure that the complaint is put at a mutually convenient time, the student should try to arrange an appointment with this person. The student should expect a response either immediately, or to be posted (using standard mail or e-mail as appropriate) within ten (10) working days if the matter has to be referred or if the person concerned is absent.

We will be happy to deal with complaints raised on an informal basis, but if you are not able to approach the person who is directly responsible, or if student considers that the matter has not been satisfactorily resolved, the student should raise their complaint with the Academic Coordinator or the Director, who will then refer the complaint for action as appropriate.

A student should expect a response within 5 working days of receipt of the complaint, although this may take longer if further investigation is required.

When a complaint has been satisfactorily resolved by these means, it is good practice for this to be confirmed and thereby recorded by a brief exchange of correspondence or emails between the complainant and the person who has addressed the complaint.

We may pursue an informal complaint of a severe nature through the formal route. Such a decision will not be taken lightly, and the student's wishes will be taken into consideration.

Formal Complaint

If your complaint cannot be solved informally, or if the matter is considered particularly serious, you will be asked to fill in and sign the Complaints form. The submission of a Complaints Form or letter, and its date of receipt will represent the commencement of consideration under the Formal Complaints Procedure.

Your submission will be referred by the Director, for consideration, to an appropriate member of staff in the Centre. This member of a team will be asked to investigate your complaint and to advise the Director accordingly in writing of their response and any action proposed. You will then be notified of this outcome in writing, and of any action, you should take in relation to it.

If it is felt that your grounds for pursuing the complaint are not justified, you will be advised why, and it will be confirmed that the Centre has completed its investigation of your complaint, has provided its final decision on it and does not intend to take the matter any further.

However, if your reasons for pursuing a complaint are justified, you will be invited to a meeting for an investigation of your complaint. You will be informed of the outcome in writing, indicating that the Centre has completed its investigation of your complaint, has provided its final decision on it and does not intend to take the matter any further.

Timescale

The Centre will make every endeavour to deal with your complaint quickly. If there is a delay because of the nature of your complaint, or due to staff availability, you will be kept informed of progress.

  • You should receive an acknowledgement of any written submission within 5 working days of its receipt, provided that you have followed the guidelines.
  • You will normally receive an initial written response to your written complaint within 10 days of its receipt, provided that you have followed the guidelines.
  • You will typically receive a final response to your complaint within 28 days from receipt of a formal submission, provided that you have followed the guidelines; but if your complaint is complex, this timescale may be extended

WHEN MAKING A COMPLAINT YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES ARE:

  • To state clearly the substance of your complaint;
