Step 1: Contacting your trainer
If you are in the process of receiving your training, you should first contact your trainer who will ensure that your concerns are dealt with fairly and quickly and endeavour to solve the issue. You should raise your concerns within seven days of the matter in question. Your trainer will fully investigate your concerns and address any raised issue/s accordingly.
If your complaint is about your trainer and it would be inappropriate to discuss the matter with him/her, please proceed straight to Stage 2.
Stage 2: Contacting the office
If you are not satisfied with the outcome of stage 1, if you are no longer receiving training or if your complaint is about your trainer and it would be inappropriate to discuss the matter with him/her, please contact the Launchpad office where a member of our dedicated team will investigate your concerns. A response will be sent to you within 5 working days.
- By Telephone on 020 7812 9570.
- By Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Via the contact form at the bottom of this page.
- In person. Contact us to arrange a meeting at the Launchpad office.
Step 3: Taking your complaint further
If you are not satisfied with the outcome of Stage 2 you will need to submit your complaint to us in writing via email or post, where it will be passed on to the company director. Please include a copy of any supporting information you may have. This will assist in reaching a speedy conclusion to the complaint. Please email this to email@example.com. We will acknowledge receipt of your complaint within 24 hours, and you can expect a response within 10 working days.
Step 4: The next stage
If it is a complaint relating to Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) training, and you do not feel that Launchpad has been able to address the issues you have raised, you may refer your complaint to your disability officer, assessor or assessment centre. They will take your complaint up on your behalf with Launchpad, in accordance with their own complaints handling procedures.
In the unlikely event that this does not offer a final resolution, you can ask the DSA Quality Assurance Group to arbitrate (for contact details see www.dsa-qag.org.uk). DSA-QAG will not consider a complaint unless it has been through the process above. DSA-QAG’s decision in all complaints relating to DSA claims is final.
