COMPLAINTS & APPEALS
We strive to protect the best interests of our students and clients, and our team is committed to supporting you in any way we can.  However, if something does go wrong, we want to know about it and have the opportunity to remedy the situation wherever possible. A Complaints and Appeals Process has been established to ensure that those student/client concerns are treated in a transparent, timely and just matter. EQUALS ensures that students and clients have access to a fair and equitable process for dealing with grievances and provides an avenue for learners to appeal against decisions that affect their progress. Students wishing to lodge a complaint/appeal are requested to do so in writing to the COO, Marie Chittleborough at mchittleborough@equals.edu.au or GPO Box 2443 Adelaide SA 5001. Should a student wish to appeal a decision or a proposed action, they will have 20 working days to lodge their appeal.  A complaint may be lodged within a fair timeframe. Further information on the Complaints and Appeals procedure can be found in the full policy here.

BE SAFE. BE AWARE.

We are all responsible for creating a safe and supportive campus. As a student at EQUALS, you can help us maintain a safe campus by being aware of your own safety as well as the environment around you. The EQUALS community relies on each other to work together to create and maintain a safe, supportive environment. Our Student Services team are there to provide support and guidance when you need it. Be Safe. Be Aware. The Be Safe. Be Aware. campaign offers a number of simple steps to help stay safe when you leave campus. With distinctly different seasons throughout the year, it’s especially wise to be aware of the changing light and weather conditions. These steps can help you stay safe. Speak Up. For Justice. The Speak Up. For Justice. campaign seeks to raise awareness and empower individuals to have a sense of responsibility on campus.   We are all faced with difficult situations at one time or another.  If we are faced with anti-social behaviour that offends or causes harm to another individual, it is important that you find the courage to speak up.    It is absolutely important that everyone assumes responsibility for a safe and harmonious environment. Other Safety Concerns Sexual assault and harassment are never acceptable. EQUALS International understands that these experiences are both personal and traumatic.  We aim to ensure accessible and confidential information about what to do and who can help.  If you believe that you have been assaulted or harassed, please contact a member of the Student Services team. We have a range of internal and external support services that can advise and support you.
