Supporting a fitness to teach referral

When someone fills out a referral form about a teacher or college lecturer’s conduct (how they behave), they are asked to include contact details of people who witnessed the alleged behaviour.

The person who is filling out the form should ask you if you are happy for your details to be included.

We then read the form and decide if we will investigate.

If we decide to investigate, the teacher or college lecturer will receive a notice of investigation and you may be asked to provide a statement.
