Employers and former employers
Employers can make a conduct referral or competence recommendation to us about a teacher or college lecturer. In certain cases, employers have a legal duty to refer a teacher or college lecturer to us.
Members of the Public
Members of the public can make a referral to us if they have concerns about a teacher or college lecturer’s conduct. If they have concerns about a teacher’s competence, they should raise this with an employer.
Teachers and college lecturers can also refer themselves to us.
Contact the police if your concern is of a criminal nature.
