We take whistleblowing very seriously at Swim England Qualifications. If you have any concerns about an incident that has happened or may take place that involves qualifications, then let us know about it.

What is whistleblowing?

A whistleblower is someone who reports suspected wrongdoing at work. Wrongdoing may include:

  • putting someone’s health and safety is in danger
  • damaging the environment
  • a criminal offence
  • the organisation isn’t obeying the law
  • the organisation is not meeting regulatory requirements set by Ofqual in the General Conditions of Recognition.
  • covering up wrongdoing.

A whistle blower is protected by the law and will not be treated detrimentally or dismissed as long as the reporting is in good faith, not malicious or for personal gain. If reporting is malicious or for personal gain there is no protection by law.
