Neil Taylor Insolvency Limited posted on its website both blogs and podcasts with comments by Neil Taylor and Michelle Mills relating to The Joint Insolvency Examination Board (“JIEB”) November 2020 examinations. Neil Taylor Insolvency Limited, Neil Taylor and Michelle Mills each:
1. wish to apologise unreservedly for the content of those blogs and podcasts
2. acknowledge that each made inaccurate and unwarranted criticism of the JIEB, its directors, its Examination Team, its Secretariat and the administration of both the preparation and marking of those exams;
3. acknowledge and fully accept that the organisation of the JIEB, its directors and its Examination Team were unfairly and unreasonably criticised in each of the blogs and podcasts;
4. fully accept that the JIEB has a well-known and robust procedure for allowing comment and criticism of the exams set by JIEB to be aired and that they will each avail themselves of this procedure to raise any issues regarding the JIEB exams in the future.
As JIEB is a not-for-profit organisation, run solely for the purpose of setting the exams by directors who give of their time for free, a contribution towards the costs incurred by the JIEB as a result of the inaccurate blogs and podcasts has been made to JIEB.
