IELTS whistle-blowing policy

We ensure you can trust IELTS.

The IELTS whistle-blowing policy is intended to encourage and promote honest and ethical behaviour. We help test takers and other stakeholders to escalate concerns about actual, suspected or anticipated wrongdoing (malpractice) within the IELTS Test Partners (British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia, Cambridge English) and within IELTS USA.

Under the policy, test takers and other stakeholders are able to report instances, or suspected instances, of unethical, improper, unlawful or undesirable conduct without fear of intimidation or reprisal.

This policy applies to all IELTS test takers and to other stakeholders. We act in the best interest of anyone who reports suspected wrongdoing under this policy to protect them from adverse reaction and the public disclosure of their identity.

How can we help?

If you have reasonable grounds for believing that wrongdoing has occurred, or is likely to occur, within the IELTS Test Partners (British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia, Cambridge English) or within IELTS USA, please report your concerns here.
