External Whistleblowing Policy


Dynamic Training is committed to conducting its business with honesty and integrity at all times. If, at any time, this commitment is not respected or appears to be in question, Dynamic Training will endeavour to identify and remedy such situations. Therefore, it is the company’s policy to ensure that when a person has reasonable grounds to believe that an employee, manager or any other person related to the company has committed, or is about to commit, an offence that could harm the company’s business or reputation, it denounces the wrongdoers in questions.


The purpose of this whistleblowing policy is to encourage current and former employees, contractual third parties and learners to communicate events that raise serious concerns about Dynamic Training. Dynamic Training encourages and will support staff who report illegal practice or individuals who violate the organisations policies.

This policy applies to all employees of Dynamic Training, as well as contractual third parties or partners doing business with the company. The Public Interest Disclosure Act (1999) gives legal protection to employees against being dismissed or penalised by their employers as a result of publicly disclosing certain serious concerns.

This policy sets out Dynamic Trainings approach to whistleblowing and the procedure which should be followed when a concern has been raised to Dynamic Training.

The policy provides a framework for those wishing to make a disclosure about malpractice or other wrongdoing in line with the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998, if the disclosure is made in good faith and believed to be true.


The External Whistleblowing Policy and Procedures applies to all Dynamic Trainings clients – Learners (or their Parents or Guardians).

  • Awarding Organisations, staff or associates, for whom a separate, internal policy is available
  • Complaints about Dynamic Training UK Ltd qualifications or service for which the Complaints Policy Procedure should be referred to
  • Appeals against assessment decisions for which the Appeals Policy and Procedures should be referred to
