Procedures for receiving a complaint
Verbal complaints may be made by telephone, in person to the most senior staff member present at the service or via the online form that can be access via this link.
Complaints may be received through any other contact details available to the complainant.
Written complaints may be sent to Fieri Leadership and Development Ltd, The Stanley Building, 7 Pancras Square, London, N1C 4AG for the attention of the Operations Director or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
A complaint should normally be submitted within 28 days of the incident in question.
- All complaints received should be sent to email@example.com who will forward to the appropriate manager and log on a central record. An acknowledgement will be sent to the person who submitted the complaint advising them of the date a response will be sent to them.
- If a form is completed on behalf of an individual by a member of staff following a telephone conversation, the staff member will ask for permission/consent to process the information through the
Complaints procedure as part of the discussion.
Complaints will be dealt with in the following 3 stages:
An appropriate manager considers the complaint and a response is sent to the complainant within 10 working days.
In the event of the complainant being unsatisfied with the response, outcome or handling of the complaint, this will be referred to the Managing Director – or to the Awarding Body if it concerns an accredited programme – who will decide a nominated manager to review the complaint and response. The reviewer will do this and respond to the complainant within 14 days of receipt of the complaint and will notify the complainant of the outcome and provide a response in writing along with information about rights and how to appeal.
If, at this stage, the complainant is still dissatisfied the Managing Director will review the complaint and responses and do one of three things:
- Uphold the investigation and review outcome;
- Review and uphold all, or some, of the complaint;
- Establish a panel to individually review the complaint and outcomes.
At all times the complainant will be fully involved in this process. Fieri Administration will retain documentation from all levels of the process on file.
Staff Complaints If staff wish to make an internal complaint related to service provision, they should follow the same process as above. If a staff member has a complaint that relates to their job role they must follow the Grievance Policy and Procedures. Monitoring and Accountability Complaints will be monitored as part of the ISO9001 Management Review Meeting process.
