What do I do if I have a concern?

If you have concerns about your experience at Wintec, the first thing you should do is talk to your tutor or support staff, submit Student Voice 24/7 feedback or contact SAWIT to discuss your concerns and your options. Please see the Student Feedback page for more information on the Wintec formal complaints process.

If you do this and find your concerns are not resolved, you can pursue an external complaint through the NZQA. The NZQA can provide an independent assessment of your complaint and will either investigate your concerns or advise you what you can do next.

You can submit a complaint query on the NZQA website or send an email to risk@nzqa.govt.nz. For more information, please contact NZQA on 0800 697 296.
