    Reasonable accommodation

    The appeals procedure will involve a review of the Assessment Process for the specific learner concerned; including where appropriate the review of learner evidence and the assessment results. The examiner who evaluates a learner appeal will not be the examiner who made the original assessment decision.

    The learner evidence reviewed at the appeal is the original evidence submitted by the learner, no amendments of new evidence will be taken into consideration during the appeals process.

    The learner will be informed of the outcome of the Appeals Process within an agreed timescale.

    Following the completion of the Appeal Process, the results for the learner(s) concerned will be forwarded to QQI as the final result and certificates will be issued to reflect the submitted result.
