Grievance Redressal Mechanism for Student teachers – Guidelines

Introduction

In order to redress individual as well as collective grievances of the B.Ed. College student teachers, a grievance redressal mechanism has been devised.

What is a Grievance?

A Grievance may be any kind of discontent or dissatisfaction or negative perception, whether expressed or not, arising out of anything connected with college that a student teacher thinks, or even feels, is unfair, unjust or inequitable. Any grievance / complaint relating to sexual harassment and ragging will also be included.

The Grievances can be categorised under the following heads

  • Academic
  • Non-academic
  • Discrimination
  • Harassment
  • Any other

Please Note: While this platform allows all student teachers to voice their concerns in an open manner, it is imperative that the complainant exercises due diligence and care in deciding what he/she would qualify as a grievance that is serious enough to deserve the attention of this committee comprising of the Principal, faculty and student representatives.

Where is the Grievance box installed?

The grievance box is installed in the library. So student teachers can either write their name or put anonymous grievances in the box during Library hours.
