It’s been over a year since the relevant professional institute made contact with me to say they intended to investigate whether or not there needed to be a hearing to determine the offender’s fitness to teach. You follow that? They don’t know whether they need to look at his fitness to teach. Seriously? This is from their website:
How long will the investigation take?
The investigation should be completed within six to eight weeks. The time frame for the
investigation may be extended in certain circumstances, such as if the investigation is complex
or it is difficult to obtain the evidence. If the investigation cannot be completed within six to
eight weeks, the Institute will notify you that the investigation has been delayed and of the
revised date of completion for the investigation.
I have Police files, miles of paperwork and medical professionals assessments that would reach across Australia if laid end to end. And HE PLED GUILTY (though to lesser charges). Just pointing out that there are 52 weeks in a year, that’s all. I’ve never been informed of any ‘delay’. I guess that makes this the longest eight weeks of my life…
