Code of Conduct

Victorian Teaching Professional Code of Conduct

“One of the hallmarks of a profession is adherence to publicly affirmed ethical standards. Over a period of four years the Victorian Institute of Teaching worked with teachers to fulfil one of its major legislative functions – ‘to develop, maintain and promote a Code of Conduct for the teaching profession’.”

I put this here – so a teacher can reflect upon questions they have had about whats the right way? In a design class room often there is a belief that ‘rules’ are to be violated – while there is a demand for innovation in the ‘way students look at problems’ – this does not apply to people relationships. The above site has links to documents and describes ‘inappropriate’ conduct.

Touching a student? Think about it.
