Conflict of Interest Policy
A conflict of interest may be defined as:
A conflict between an employee and a learner is where the employee has a personal relationship with the learner which could weaken the assessment process.
Any employee who has or believes that there might be a conflict of interest must report this conflict to their section head or the centre manager.
The centre manager and lead internal verifier will evaluate the conflict and determine an appropriate action should one be needed.
If found appropriate; then the employee will be removed from the assessment or invigilation process for that learner.
If the employee is unable to be removed from the process then the lead internal verifier will ensure sufficient sampling of the process takes place to ensure no weaken of the qualification has taken place.
