Anatomy And Physiology Online Courses – Appeals Policy

Anatomy And Physiology Online Courses – Appeals Policy

Aim

  • To enable the learner to enquire, question or appeal against an assessment decision
  • To attempt to reach an agreement between the learner and the assessor at the earliest opportunity
  • To standardise and record any appeal to ensure openness and fairness
  • To facilitate a learner’s ultimate right of appeal to the accrediting body, where appropriate.
  • To protect the interests of all learners and the integrity of the qualification.

In order to do this, Anatomy And Physiology Online Courses will:

  • Inform the learner at induction, of the appeals policy and procedure
  • Record, track and validate any appeal
  • Forward the appeal to the accrediting body when a learner considers that a decision continues to disadvantage her/him after the internal appeals process has been exhausted
  • Keep appeals records for inspection by the accrediting body for a minimum of 18 months.
  • Have a staged appeals procedure
  • Take appropriate action to protect the interests of other learners and the integrity of the qualification, when the outcome of an appeal questions the validity of other results
  • Monitor appeals to inform quality improvement

This policy will be reviewed every 12 months by the Principal.
