Have your say

Send us your feedback

Feedback helps us improve the services we offer. We would like to hear from you, whether it's to comment on positive experiences, to highlight areas for improvement, or to raise specific concerns you would like addressed.These concerns might be about our services or your training. They could relate to treatment you have received or, the behaviour of others which you consider unacceptable or inappropriate.

As part of our overall approach to gathering feedback you may also be asked to complete a survey at the completion of a course, an assessment, a single unit or module, a group of units, or a complete qualification. Where opportunities for improvement are identified as a result of the feedback we receive, actions are developed and put in place to help improve our services to you. If at any time you are not sure of the best way to provide feedback or raise a concern your trainer or, one of our support staff can assist you in exploring your options and if required to assist you through the feedback process.

The quickest way to provide feedback is by using the online Feedback Form.

Feedback Form

Do not use this form if your complaint relates to any behaviour, or perceived behaviour by a student or staff member which you consider to be upsetting. Use the Grievance Form.

How to raise a concern or complaint?

Refer to our Complaints Policy.

In the first instance raise your concern with the party involved. This needs to happen within 10 working days of the issue arising. If you do not feel comfortable with this you may discuss your issue with the College Managing Director. If your concern is about an assessment decision you should follow the procedure to request a reassessment appraisal. This process is outlined in the student handbook and course information. If you remain unsatisfied with the outcome you may lodge a complaint with the Australian Skills Quality Authority, (ASQA) the State Fair Trading Office or with the relevant State Maritime Authority.
