Before you make a complaint
In many cases, concerns you have about a teacher can be resolved by discussing them directly with teacher and/or with the teacher's employer.
Before you lodge a complaint with us, we encourage you to contact and speak with the:
- Principal or person in charge of the school or education setting;
- Governing body; or
- The authority that employs the teacher (i.e. the Northern Territory Department of Education.)
Wherever possible the employer should be given the opportunity to deal with the complaint, which may include making a mandatory employer notification to the Board.
Where it is not possible for the teacher's employer to resolve the complaint, you may make a complaint to the Board.
