2. Complaints / Appeals Process
2.1. Consultancy activity is valued as important activity within schools and approval by the line manager will not unreasonably be withheld, however, in considering the merits and implications on the school/department, the line manager may withhold consent.
2.2 In such instances, and if a member of staff feels they have been unfairly prevented from undertaking a consultancy opportunity, they may refer the matter to their Dean who will attempt to resolve the matter. In the unlikely event of this being unresolved at that point it may then be referred to the PVC (R&I) who will have the final decision.
