What to include in your complaint

Make sure you provide us with:

  • an outline of issues you are complaining about, for example. what happened, what was the impact of that event and how has it affected you?
  • any document or materials you may have to support your complaint, such as letters or emails between you and the organisation, marketing materials and letters from other people who are affected
  • any relevant dates of events or details about the steps you have taken to resolve the matter
  • an idea of what you want to happen as a result of making a complaint, for example, what action you want the provider to take.

Your complaint is more likely to be resolved if you can specify which of the registration standards or guidelines you believe the school, school boarding premises, RTO, education provider or SEO is not meeting.
