How do you make a complaint?
You can make a complaint verbally or in writing. When you contact us please make sure that you give us all of your personal details so that we know how to respond.
If you are unhappy with any part of our service you should contact a member of staff in the relevant department. This in most cases will be your named contact/adviser/learner advocate. If the complaint relates to your named contact or another member of staff, you can speak to their team leader or manager. If you need assistance in obtaining the name of the person to contact please speak to our reception staff.
What can you do if you are unhappy with the outcome of a complaint?
We will endeavour to reach an outcome with which you are satisfied. If you are not satisfied with the response you receive, you can write to the Director and ask for your complaint to be reviewed.
