Complaints against the teacher:
  1. All registered RAD, ISTD, UDO, AQA GCSE teachers have to pass rigorous examination in the Faculty in which they wish to teach. In this way, they are kept up to date with any changes and developments in their field and are required under rules set down by individual boards to attend training events known as CPD – Continuing Professional Development days. All creative teachers have a strict application policy which includes proof of relevant dance and teacher training.
  2. The individual boards are responsible for the Programme of Study and examination of them, not the actual process of teaching. All syllabus teachers are expected to conform to the rules of professional etiquette as laid down by the Board in their Code of Conduct. However, the administration of Innovation Dance Studios business is a matter between the student, or their representative, and the teacher. In the first instance, a complaint should be made direct to them.
  3. However, if a parent/pupil wishes to make a complaint to us against a teacher, it should be made in writing, and signed by the complainant, with full details of the teacher’s name and dance school. The Directors or Dance Development Manager will log and acknowledge the complaint within 7 working days and a report will, if appropriate, be referred to the Board of Directors.
  4. The findings of the Board will be reported to the team and if an allegation is proved to the satisfaction of all, they may keep them instated as a teacher or reprimand the member or expel them from the company, and the complainant will be informed within 7 days of that decision.

If the complainant believes that the complaint has not been dealt with in accordance with these procedures, they may complain to individual boards.
