Trinity College London can confirm that an internal safeguarding inquiry has been initiated relating to an examiner in New Zealand, following the publication of allegations in the press that the examiner has engaged in inappropriate relations with at least one of their students when working in a private capacity as a music teacher. The examiner has been suspended from all Trinity activities while this investigation is underway.
Our investigation is being pursued as a matter of the utmost importance as we consider our candidates’ wellbeing and safety to be our top priority. Trinity College London takes pride in having robust safeguarding procedures and policies in place and has no cause to believe that any of our candidates have been affected.
Erez Tocker, CEO at Trinity College London said: “We take the safeguarding of our candidates extremely seriously and will be responding to this as our utmost priority. We understand that these types of incidents can cause concern and distress and would like to reassure everyone in the Trinity network that we are doing everything to address any potential issues”.
