We aim to put our learners at the heart of everything we do and therefore value and welcome your feedback. If you have received good service from us, please let us know. We actively invite your comments both positive and negative.
Complaints are an opportunity to improve our services and to put things right for you.
We would encourage you to try to resolve any complaint in the first instance by talking to the relevant person or member of staff. If you wish to take things further, please complete a 3Cs form which are held at main reception and around the College, or ask to speak to the Duty Manager.Thurrock Adult Community College, FREEPOST ANG1538, Grays, Essex.

Learner Governors play an important role as members of the Governing Body, which is accountable for setting the aims and policies for the College, deciding how to spend the College's budget and helping to draw up the College's strategic plan. Term of office is four years but will end sooner if the person elected ceases to be a learner for more than six months.
If you are interested in becoming a learner governor representative and would like more information please contact Pam Denmark, Clerk to the Governors on 01375 372476.

Learner Forum Group dates for the year are displayed around Grays AEC.
