- A trainer found to be guilty of gross misconduct will have all contracts cancelled, and notification will be sent ANLP, NLPtCA and/or The Professional Guild of NLP as appropriate.
- Trainers are deemed to have committed gross misconduct if they have
- abused their position with a learner to gain personal advantage.
- represented themselves and their relationship with the Company inaccurately to gain personal advantage.
- committed theft of property, materials or data.
- set themselves up in direct competition.
- If the infringement is sufficiently severe, then NLPtCA will process the complaint through their own complaints procedure, which could result in the removal of accreditation and UKCP registration.
- If this is part of a formal Complaints procedure, the outcomes of this conversation are recorded.
- If a learner, fellow trainer, or other reputable source, provides evidence against a Trainer of an infringement to the Code of Practice, the Lead Tutor will arrange a meeting with the trainer, present the evidence and give the trainer an opportunity to provide a contextual explanation.
- The Lead Tutor decides if the infringement requires a formal verbal warning, in which case this outcome is recorded in the Trainer’s file.
- A formal written warning is issued should there be another occurrence within a 12 month period.
- The trainer’s relationship with the Company will cease on a third occurrence within a 2-year period.
