VIT Code of Conduct

Author: Hannah Galloway

This session will explore The Victorian Teaching Profession Code of Conduct and Ethics (the Codes), and how it applies to all teachers, including CRTs. The Codes are designed to help teachers navigate and resolve difficult professional and ethical dilemmas. While there may be no single correct solution, teachers should be able to account for their actions by referring to the Codes.

Teachers are encouraged to use the Codes along with any other codes and/or policies developed by their employer or school, to guide their professional practice.

At the end of this session, you may want to consider the following questions:

        What do the principles of the Codes look like in practice?

        What does the Code of Conduct tell me about maintaining professional boundaries with learners?


        How does my practice align with the quality of behaviour reflected in the Codes?
