What if I'm not happy with the outcome of my complaint?
If you are not happy with the outcome of your complaint, you may formally appeal the decision by completing and submitting the tauira complaints appeal form.
The tauira complaints appeal form must be submitted no later than 20 working days of the date of the letter informing you of the outcome of your complaint.
Please be aware the appeals enquiry process does not reinvestigate the complaint. The focus of the process is to determine if the complaint was dealt with fairly and thoroughly by Te Wānanga o Aotearoa. If the enquiry finds significant grounds to indicate the complaint was not dealt with fairly and thoroughly, the original complaint outcome will be reviewed and may be revised.
