Whistle blowers who are suspicious of potential non-compliance by a GWO Training Provider are encouraged to get in touch with the Secretariat.
Whistle blowers who are suspicious of potential non-compliance by a GWO Training Provider are being encouraged to get in touch with the Secretariat.
Investigations into non-compliant activity have already resulted in two training providers undergoing a full re-audit of their certifications this year and GWO members are keen to ensure the network is kept on notice that actions which undermine the learning objectives of training standards will not be tolerated.
Sabaz Herranz, Head of the GWO Audit and Compliance Committee, said: “Where there is evidence of non-compliance with GWO’s training standards or criteria, the Audit & Compliance Committee thoroughly investigates every time. An important way to help us do this is for people to know they can always contact the Secretariat with any concerns they may have. Emails to the GWO Audit and Compliance Committee will be treated in the strictest confidence and your evidence will help us maintain the integrity of our standards.”
