A conflict of interest arises when an individual has authority in a matter in which they also have an additional interest which conflicts with their role and can compromise their decision making.
Example of a conflict of interest could be: An individual involved in any capacity with a course in which they also have a personal interest in the success or otherwise of a learner – for instance if the learner is a relative or friend.
Conflicts of interest may also be perceived and should therefore be declared. For example:
All staff complete a conflict of interest form to declare actual or perceived conflicts of interest
