About Us

The Good Practice Frameworks of the Office of the Independent Adjudicator stress the importance of good training for university decision-makers and student support services.

All our trainers are practising barristers with expertise in university matters. Some are former academics; others accredited mediators and adjudicators. Over the last few years, we have offered training to hundreds of student unions advisers, appeals officers, educational consultants, and universities.

A selection of reviews from past delegates:

  • “Daniel was fantastic! He put Academic Advice into a proper legal context, making me realise that this is a subject that needs to be taken more seriously and all academic advisers should be required to attend training. I would highly recommend this training to all student union advisers as well as university appeals and complaints staff.”
    Wendy Dant, Loughborough University Student Advice & Support Service
  • “I found Daniel’s training invaluable. His vast experience both in the courtroom and at appeal hearings means he is perfectly placed to offer example-based guidance on ensuring that University procedures are fair and equitable. Highly recommended.”
    Richard Booth, Student Casework Manager, Birmingham City University
  • “I can highly recommend the Student Appeals Training. The information shared was accessible, interesting and appropriate. The trainer was generous with the information he provided. I have improved my handling of complaints and appeals as a result of the training.”
    Warren Rodell, Student Disputes Officer, Oxford Brookes University
