Window Academy values a free & safe environment for both students/students and teachers. At Window, everyone is allowed to be who she/he/they are. The following principles should contribute to a safe environment for growth. Where everyone can develop their creative talent through trial and error. To ensure this atmosphere for both student and instructor, these principles have been established.
Window and its teachers actively ensure that the rules are followed by everyone involved with the students/students. If you observe transgressive behavior, or are troubled by something, always contact us. You can:
In cases where there is (threat of) violence, teachers always alert the supervisor and if necessary, external emergency services.
Should teachers encounter inappropriate behavior from visitors, customers or other external parties, they will take appropriate action. The teacher preferably addresses the person exhibiting the behavior politely but clearly himself or herself. In cases where this is not possible or desirable or does not have the desired effect, the teacher reports the behavior to her/his/their supervisor. The supervisor will take appropriate measures in response, with the safety of the instructor and students/trainees as the guiding principle.
Visitors, customers and external parties who experience unwelcome behavior by teachers shall report it to the supervisor of the teacher in question. Manager then acts in accordance with the appropriate action. The supervisor confronted with a report of undesirable behavior between teachers and/or students/course participants shall seek an appropriate solution aimed primarily at preventing future recurrence and enabling good cooperation between the parties. If either party is not satisfied with the way the supervisor handled the incident, she/he/they shall notify the supervisor as soon as possible.
If the supervisor sees cause, she may, upon observation of inappropriate behavior, proceed to impose disciplinary measures on the teacher, such as: an official written warning, an official written reprimand, suspension and/or termination of the assignment agreement. In very serious or repeated cases of undesirable behavior, immediate termination of the agreement may follow. If an employee is suspended, she/he/they must immediately return any loan items from Window before the start of the suspension, without any obligation on Window to compensate for their loss.
