Our policy

We welcome feedback and encourage employers, facilitators and participants to contribute to our continual improvement process.

We pride ourselves on our professional reputation and we want to be the best in our field of work. Therefore, our aim is to respond quickly to suggested improvements as this not only has benefits for everyone involved in our programs, but also adds value to our business.

Your feedback is our learning. We prefer to resolve issues quickly and informally.

Our procedure

If you have a complaint regarding any aspect of our action learning programs, or the conduct of any employees or associates of the Action Learning Institute, we would like you to raise your concerns immediately. We prefer to resolve complaints quickly through constructive discussion, however we also encourage you to lodge a formal complaint if you are not satisfied or a resolution cannot be reached.

For participants and employers, please speak directly with the facilitator for your program first – in most instances you will be able to resolve the issue immediately.

Alternatively, contact our office by email at [email protected] and an impartial representative of the Action Learning Institute will mediate to resolve the situation with all parties involved.

To escalate your complaint, you can lodge a formal complaint or lodge a complaint with the National VET Regulator. More information is provided below.

Lodging a formal complaint

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the methods above, the Action Learning Institute has formal procedures for documenting and dealing with complaints.

The first step is to download and complete an Action Learning Institute Complaint Form or email or call us to request one.

Include all information you think is relevant to your issue – this will help us to resolve your issue as quickly as possible. Ensure that you include an explanation of the resolution that you are seeking.

Forward the completed form to the Action Learning Institute by email, fax or post. Our details are included on the form.

We will investigate your complaint and respond in writing within 3 working days of receiving your written complaint.

If we estimate that more than 60 calendar days are required to process and finalise your complaint, we will contact you in writing to explain why we need more time. We will then maintain communication with you throughout the process.
