Policy on cheating, plagiarism or malpractice

Befriending Networks will scan all course assignments onto computer and hold them on file.

We acknowledge that there may be a similarity between completed assignments, as each participant will be reflecting what they have learned in the training sessions and will be producing assignments based on best practice within befriending.

We also acknowledge that participants may borrow from materials in the BNS online resource library.

We do however expect people completing the assignments to write them on their own.

If we think that candidates have plagiarised the work of others they would:

  • fail the course assignment.
  • have to redo the training input element of the section of the course at their own expense.
  • be set an alternative assignment to complete.
