Complaints Procedure:

  • We aim to provide service of a standard that is acceptable to all students. If we fail to do this we want to know about it. This will enable us not only to deal with a specific problem but also to avoid it happening again. Our main objective is to respond promptly and effectively to any student dissatisfaction as it arises. If you are not satisfied with our service, please talk to us immediately. We shall try to solve the problem quickly and informally.
  • If informal discussions do not solve the problem and a student wants to register a formal complaint the process is as follows:
  • Make the complaint to the Principal either in writing or orally. The Principal will keep a record of the conversation. The Principal will attempt to resolve the matter in person or by letter within 5 working days.
  • If the student wants to pursue the complaint further, they will be asked to put the complaint in writing to the Directors of Tti School of English, the letter should be marked ‘private and confidential’.
  • The Directors will respond to the complaint in writing within 5 working days. The written response will summarise what investigation has been carried out and what action is proposed in order to resolve the matter.
  • All complaints will be recorded and kept on file. All complaints are subject to the school’s confidentiality policy.
  • If you are not satisfied with the response from Tti School of English, you can contact English UK for further advice.
