Governing law, jurisdiction and complaints
- The Contract (including any non-contractual matters) is governed by the law of England and Wales.
- Disputes can be submitted to the jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales or, where the Customer lives in Scotland or Northern Ireland, in the courts of respectively Scotland or Northern Ireland.
- We try to avoid any dispute, so we deal with complaints as follows: In most cases a problem can and should be resolved by contacting the tutor or member of staff directly involved with the problem. The initial communication with the member of staff may be by email, telephone conversation or in person by appointment. Where this action does not lead to the problem being resolved then the complaint should be dealt with through the formal stage.
Where the complainant is not satisfied with the response from the tutor at stage 1 or if the complaint is of a serious nature, the complainant should be advised that the next stage is to put their complaint in writing to the Director Natalie Bourne-Moses, where he/she should seek to include details that might assist the investigation, such as witnesses, dates and times of events and copies of relevant documents.
Natalie Bourne-Moses will be responsible for carrying out an investigation or appoint another senior member of staff to carry out the investigation and report their findings to her, who will then reach a conclusion based on the investigation.
Upon conclusion of the investigation the investigator will compile a detailed report of the findings and any other recommendations or actions they propose need to be considered.
