The regulations and guidelines in this document serve the purpose of providing course participants, course instructors, staff, and the general public interested in the Globethics Academy course programme with relevant and precise information on the procedures pertaining to the registration process for Globethics Academy courses.
Guidelines for Course Participants Making a Complaint
Globethics is dedicated to making every effort to provide course participants best possible conditions and environments conducive to learning during their time at the Globethics Academy. However, course participants can make a complaint if they are dissatisfied with any dimension of their experience. In these guidelines, we set out what can be dealt with under this procedure and how matters will be taken forward for you.
This policy aims at describing the organisation’s commitment to non-discrimination and to the creation and perseveration of a harassment-free environment, the measures it takes to achieve this in alignment with its vision, mission, and values, and how it offers, in particular but not exclusively, course participants opportunities to solicit advice, accompaniment and to make use of reporting and investigation mechanisms in view of protecting individuals and groups subjected to any form of harassment and/or discrimination and of safeguarding an educational and professional environment marked by the respect of the dignity and integrity of all persons, inclusion, fairness, and equal consideration.
This policy defines its commitment to inclusion and to the provision of educational and professional conditions which allow the participation of all individuals regardless of their health or physical integrity status, in as much as the general principles of non-discrimination and harassment, as well as the principles of conduct explicated in the Globethics Code of Ethics are respected.
Copyright Policy and Course Programme Copyright Statements
The Globethics Academy Copyright Policy and the course programme Copyright Statements are offered to provide clarity and transparency on the use of material made available to registered course participants on the Academy’s learning management system.
Globethics provides the present Grade Moderation Procedure to ensure that the quality of the assessment process is carried out across the range of its educational provisions. It follows the Assessment Strategy, the values, principles, criteria and assessment rubrics detailed therein.
Policy on the Prevention of Radicalisation and Extremism
The prevention of radicalisation and extremism has become in the recent years an increasingly sensitive topic in the public debate in all regions of the world, particularly with regard to higher education institutions as potential locations where young people can become targets of radical and extremist political and/or religious influences. This policy document takes the wider context of debate seriously while anchoring the danger of radicalisation and extremism in its institutional culture.
The Globethics Quality Assurance and Enhancement Manual (QAEM) covers all course programmes
leading to accredited and unaccredited, internal awards issued by Globethics (certificates, diplomas
and degrees), at graduate and postgraduate levels, in joint degrees with academic partner institutions
but does not cover programmes delivered under accreditation.
This is the Conflict of Interest Annual Disclosure Statement for members of the Board and Committees of Globethics, the staff of Head Office, interns, mandate holders, associates, Regional Programme Directors and Programme Executives and national contacts.
