Our own investigation has revealed that one of our employees is suspected to have sold exams to students. This is utterly unacceptable. Saxion is committed to ensuring that all employees uphold the highest ethical standards and to the reliability of our tests and exams. This is of the utmost importance to our students.
The Saxion Executive Board has instructed a specialized external agency to conduct an investigation. Saxion has reported the test theft to the police and has shared the results of the investigation with the police. The police have arrested three persons, including the employee concerned, who works at the central support department. Investigations by the police and the Public Prosecution Service (OM) are currently underway. Pending the investigation, Saxion has suspended the employee concerned for an indefinite period of time.
Saxion will be conducting additional internal investigations to find out which exams are involved. As soon as the investigation has been completed, we will know which students this may affect. We understand that this may raise questions and concerns among both our students and our employees, and we deeply regret being unable at this time to provide further clarity.
Exam theft is utterly unacceptable to us, and we want to get to the bottom of this. Consequently, we will give our full cooperation to the police in their investigation, and we call upon anyone who thinks they have useful information to come forward. You can remain anonymous if your wish. We have launched a reporting centre for this purpose (accessible via email@example.com), that is operational from 02.00 p.m. on Tuesday, 15 February.
