Raising concerns

Reference: SE3

Last Updated 22/03/2019

All people within a learning environment have a responsibility to raise concerns about any impacts to public safety that may arise. This can include any concerns about learning experiences, the culture of an environment or the care that has been provided.

For example, students may have witnessed poor care, or been asked to complete a task that was beyond their capability without proper support or training.

Students should be supported to raise concerns and provided with appropriate information on how to do so.

Students who do raise concerns should be protected from harassment or ill consequences as a consequence of raising concerns
