Making a complaint

Now Teach is committed to providing the best services but we recognise that our processes can always be improved.  If we do not meet the standards that you expect, we would like to hear your feedback. 

If you wish to make a complaint: 

  • email us with the subject “Complaint” at; or 
  • write to us at Now Teach, 4 Bloomsbury Square, London, WC1A 2RP.   

Please include your name, address and contact number so that we can easily respond.  

Complaints should be made within 3 months of the incident unless under exceptional circumstances. 

Responding to a complaint

We will acknowledge the complaint within 10 working days and endeavour to formally reply within 20 working days. If you send us the complaint by post, please note that it will take longer for us to respond. Please note that if the complaint is of a complex nature, then we may need more time to respond. 

We may not be able to comment on all complaints, for example, if the complaint does not relate to Now Teach or the work that we do.   

We may choose not to respond to every complaint, for example where the person complaining is abusive, where the complaint is being unreasonably pursued, where the complaint is incoherent, or where the complaint is anonymous. 

Any further concerns or queries

If you are not satisfied with how your complaint has been dealt with, or if you have further questions, please let us know.  We will then escalate this up to a more senior member of staff or the Board to review.  

Please note, this complaints policy covers those external to Now Teach. For Now Teach employees please see the Grievances Policy.
