Virtual Event Virtual Event
What is the difference between whistleblowing and grievance? Would you, as a leader, know what to do if you were faced with a situation where a member of staff had whistle blown about something in school?

Just as dealing with complaints, whistleblowing must be dealt with both sensitively and effectively. The course will establish the differences between a grievance and whistleblowing so that staff may be guided correctly and that policies are executed impartially but effectively. The course is led by Ruth McGlone, ex-headteacher with extensive leadership experience.

Training Objectives
