The following scenarios have been developed to assist members of the community (parents, students/learners) in understanding who to report to regarding the conduct of a registered teacher*, school or early childhood (EC) service, and which organisations are involved following a report.
There may be circumstances where a complaint lodged with one organisation discloses an issue that also falls within the remit of another organisation. In cases such as this, the original recipient may contact the complainant as required to seek consent to forward their complaint to the related organisation for its independent consideration.
It is also noted that through established information sharing provisions and memorandums of understanding, co-regulators are able (and in some circumstances, required) to notify each other of certain conduct issues.
* If a scenario applies to any person employed in a school or EC service who is not a registered teacher, the stated reporting guidelines apply (except VIT).
