Incident Reporting - no student concern

An incident which occurs in practice where a student is affected, but does not calls into question their competence, health status or adherence to relevant Professional Body Standards of conduct, performance and ethics should be reported to UCLan to enable appropriate support to be offered to both the student and the affected practice area as appropriate. This also enables monitoring of the quality of the placement environment to enable the University to fulfil the requirements of the Universities Quality Assurance agency and regulatory body requirements.

Examples may include, but are not limited to;

  • Safeguarding incidents
  • Abuse of power relationships with students
  • Bullying/Harassment of students
