Canadian College of Technology and Business (CCTB) maintains strict policies regarding attendance and punctuality in keeping with our objective of training students for entry into the work force. In other words: Treat going to CCTB like you would your job. Punctuality and regular attendance are mandatory.

  1. The minimum attendance requirements for students are as follows:

    The student must attend a minimum of 75% of the program in order to successfully complete that program.

  1. The consequences for students who do not meet the minimum attendance requirements listed above are as follows: Any student who has excessive absenteeism in a class, as determined by the instructor, may receive an incomplete from the instructor for that course. Absences may be excused only at the discretion of the Head Administrator. The student may have to successfully repeat the course in order to receive credit for that course. The total course hours attended is given a percentage on the student transcript (not calculated into any class grades). Twenty minutes missed in any hour constitutes one missed hour. When a student is absent from the CCTB for a period of three calendar days without notifying the CCTB of the reason for absence, the student may be considered as being dismissed.
  1. The process by which students must report an absence is as follows:

    In the case of illness or unavoidable absence, the student should contact the CCTB prior to class time by phoning the administrator/answering service and giving the instructor’s name and the name of the class. A doctor’s note may be required. In the event that the student misses a class, he/she is responsible for completing any missed work on his/her own time and within assignment guidelines. It is the student’s responsibility to maintain contact with the CCTB (instructor) and classmates to obtain missed work and information.

    Please check in with the Head Administrator, if late, before coming to class.  All lates and absences will be recorded by your instructor and will become part of your permanent record.

Policy:

Canadian College of Technology and Business (CCTB) provides an opportunity for students to resolve disputes of a serious nature and grades appeals in a fair, reasonable and equitable manner. 

  1. This policy governs complaints from students respecting CCTB and any aspect of its operations. Student will not be subject to any form of retaliation as a result of filing a complaint.
  2. All student complaints must be made in writing.
  3. The student must provide the written complaint to the Senior Educational Administrator (SEA) who is responsible for making determinations in respect of complaints. If the SEA is absent or is named in a complaint, the student must provide the complaint to the Head Administrator.
  4. The process by which the student complaint will be handled is as follows:

Procedure for Student Disputes:

  • When a concern arises, the student should first attempt to address the concern with the individual most directly involved. If the student is not satisfied with the outcome at this level, the student should put his/her concern in writing. A meeting will arrange to meet with the student to discuss the concern and desired resolution as soon as possible, but within five (5) school days of receiving the student’s written concern. 
  • Following the meeting with the student enquiries will be conducted and/or investigations are necessary and appropriate to determine whether the student’s concerns are substantiated in whole or in part. Those enquiries may involve further discussion(s) with the student either individually or with appropriate CCTB personnel. All communications must be in writing.
  • The necessary enquiries and/or investigations shall be completed, and a response provided in writing to all involved as soon as possible, but no later than ten (10) school days following the receipt of the student’s written concerns.
  • If it is determined that the student’s concerns are not substantiated, the CCTB will provide a written explanation of the decision and deny the complaint; or
  • If it is determined that the student’s concerns are substantiated in whole or in part, the CCTB will propose a resolution.
  • The response must specify that the student will have five school days to appeal the decision. A copy of the decision and all supporting materials shall be given to the student, a copy will be placed in the Institution’s Student Conduct File, and the original will be placed in the student file.
  • If the student is not satisfied with the determination of the SEA, the student must advise the SEA as soon as possible but within five (5) school days of being informed of the determination. The SEA will immediately refer the matter to the Head Administrator of the CCTB.
  • The Head Administrator will review the matter and if necessary, may meet with the student as soon as possible but within five (5) school days of receipt of the student’s appeal. The original decision will either be confirmed or varied by the Head Administrator in writing within five (5) school days after receipt of the student’s appeal or, if a meeting with the student occurred, within five (5) days of that meeting. At this point the CCTB dispute resolution process will be considered exhausted.
  • Written reasons for the determination will be provided to the student within 45 days after the date on which the complaint was made.
  1. The student making the complaint may be represented by an agent or a lawyer.
  2. If the student is or was enrolled in an approved program, is dissatisfied with the determination, and has been misled by the CCTB regarding any significant aspect of that program, he or she may file a complaint with the Private Career Training Institutions Branch (privatetraininginstitutionsbranch.bc.ca).

Procedure for Grade Appeal:

The process by which a student may appeal a grade received in a course or a program at CCTB is as follows:

Grades may be appealed at the following times:

  • When any course work or assessment is returned by the instructor, student may appeal the mark given with the instructor. If successful, the instructor will change the mark on the classroom attendance / marking sheet in order to calculate the final grade—it would be submitted to the SEA to have the Financial and Student File updated.
  • When final grades are posted, student may appeal the grade with the instructor. Grades are compared firstly to the attendance / marking sheet to eliminate input error. If successful, the grade will be changed in the Financial and Student File.
  • When the interim transcripts are generated, student may appeal the grades for the previous 4-week period with the instructor(s). Grades are compared firstly to the attendance / marking sheet to eliminate input error.  If successful, the grade will be changed in the Financial and Student File. 
  1. If a student is dissatisfied with a grade received and can provide evidence that a higher grade is warranted, he/she should discuss with his/her instructor. The instructor will reconsider the grade and, if warranted, assign a different grade.
  2. If the student is not satisfied with the outcome of his/her appeal to the instructor, he/she should submit a written appeal to the Senior Educational Administrator.
  3. The Senior Educational Administrator will obtain a copy of the assignment/test in question from the instructor and will have another instructor re-assess the test. .
  4. If the student achieves a higher grade on re-assessment, the higher grade will be assigned to the student. If the student achieves a lower grade on re-assessment, the original grade will be retained.
  5. The grade will be considered final and cannot be appealed.
  6. The decisions on the grade appeal will be provided to students within 30 school days of CCTB receipt of the written appeal.
