Learner Disciplinary Policy

The Learner Disciplinary Policy and Procedure is applicable to all learners at Loughborough College.

All learners are required to indicate that they understand the policy and are expected to adhere to it throughout their time as a learner at college.

Learners are expected to:

  • Attend all lessons.
  • Be punctual for all lessons.
  • Try hard and persist.
  • Complete all assignments by the deadline date and to the best of their ability.
  • Treat everybody with respect, consideration and tolerance.
  • Wear their lanyard and ID.
  • Adhere to their ‘Learner agreement and college code’.
  • Report absence.

 

Comments on your ILP

Any college staff member can make a comment on your ILP. Comments entered can be to praise or to raise a cause for concern. You can view these comments. Your Study Programme Lead will review your ILP regularly. Negative comments can lead to disciplinary action.

 

Disciplinary Stages

Where possible, we will attempt to resolve any minor issues informally. Where informal strategies do not work, or when a more serious disciplinary breach is alleged, then an investigation will take place, which may lead to a disciplinary hearing. Outcomes can be ‘no case to answer’, a written warning, an action plan or withdrawal from college.

 

Appeals

Learners have the right to appeal against a disciplinary outcome and sanction at any stage. The college decision after an appeal is FINAL and is the end of the disciplinary process.

 

The LDPP is available on the college website.
