made to resolve the issue informally, and within the timeframe
agreed between you and the member of staff concerned.
The team will ask you to outline the issue and the reason for
your complaint in order to carry out a review and to resolve the

Complaints about a Training Provider
If you need to raise a complaint about a Training Provider you must in the first instance submit your complaint directly to them and complete all stages of their complaints process before contacting CILEx. Details concerning Training Provider’s complete complaint’s process can usually be found on their website.
Complaints submitted to Training Providers can usually be brought to a satisfactory resolution. However, if you have received a final response from the Training Provider (having gone through all stages of their complaints process), and you are not satisfied with the outcome, CILEx will subsequently investigate your complaint in accordance with CILEx's Complaints Policy.
