Complaint and Appeal Procedure
HVTAC will ensure the principles of natural justice and procedural fairness are adopted at every stage of the complaint and appeals process. Participants will be able to appeal assessment decisions for a period of up to and including four weeks from the date of the assessment.
Participants will be aware of the appeals procedures. Appeals will be promptly dealt with and the participant advised of the appeal outcome. The client should first discuss their concerns with their Trainer/Assessor, or other staff members they feel comfortable with. If the matter is satisfactorily resolved during initial discussions no action is required. All feedback whether compliments or complaints, is valued and ensures we meet the needs of all learners. HVTAC has implemented a procedure for continuous improvement that encourages feedback on any of our service provision. Information on our trainers, assessors, staff, any third parties (providing services for us) and other learners is valuable to us and we encourage you to make contact should you have something to discuss.
The following flowchart indicates the procedure to take for complaints and appeals. If the matter is unresolved, learners are advised they may take their grievance through legal avenues, the Anti-Discrimination Board, Consumer Affairs, Apprentice entre or other bodies as appropriate.
Should HVTAC consider that the appeals process will take more than 60 day’s HVTAC will inform the complainant or appellant in writing the reason why more than 60 days’ will be required. HVTAC will regularly update the complainant or appellant on the progress of the matter.
