We have implemented a couple of improvements aimed at speeding up the process for students and to provide support to our Heads of Schools. These include:
- Emailing your completed Allegation Template and supporting documentation to the Faculty Operations Team in the first instance (rather than your Head of School).
- Introduced a new Vetting Officer role that looks at all new cases with a view to making a recommendation to the appropriate Head of School.
When an Allegation is received, it will lodged for tracking and forwarded to the Vetting Officer to determine if there is enough evidence to support the case continuing to investigation or whether there is ‘No Case to Answer’. The Vetting Officer’s recommendation is then ratified by the appropriate Head of School and is processed accordingly.
Thank you to the Faculty Operations Team who have been supporting Michael Kiernan and Louise Brown in the refining this process.
