Best Practice Network is committed to ensuring that its practices are fair and transparent, and conducted according to agreed policies and procedures. Best Practice Network has adopted the following appeals and complaints policy. No applicant or candidate shall be prejudiced or disadvantaged by using this policy.

Written complaints are initially escalated to the first level of line management above the staff member who originally dealt with the issue, with a further right of appeal to management at the next level should the complainant still feel that their problem has not been dealt with satisfactorily.

We aim to acknowledge complaints within three working days and to then investigate and take any necessary action to resolve the situation within 20 working days.

We have several Deferral Options available to allow flexibility to candidates’ engagement with the qualification and to help compensate for busy/challenging times in school that would prevent you from being able to fully commit to the course.
