How your complaint will be handled
All complaints will be investigated as fairly and fully as possible.
We will acknowledge a written complaint within 5 working days of receipt of the complaint.
We will send a detailed written response to the complaint within 10 working days. If a full response is not possible within this time, you will be told how your complaint is being handled.
Every effort will be made to put right the situation leading to the complaint. Where we are not able to put the matter right, we will consider what form of redress, if any, that we can offer you. Any such redress will be made at the sole discretion of the College on the basis of what the College considers to be reasonable in the circumstances.
