However, where appropriate, the emphasis will be on corrective action rather than discipline, which may include options such as counselling.
Where disciplinary action is considered appropriate, it should be taken without delay as it is in the best interests of all parties concerned to have the matter resolved as soon as possible.

In cases of serious breaches, the Learner may be excluded from their course and Training at Key Employment’s premises immediately. Any illegal conduct of a Learner will be reported to the relevant authority.
