4 Appendix 1 Victorian Teaching Profession Code of Conduct INTRODUCTION The Victorian Teaching Profession Code of Conduct The Code of Conduct has been developed for and by the Victorian teaching profession. It identifies a set of principles, which describe the professional conduct, personal conduct and professional competence expected of a teacher 1 by their colleagues and the community. It is based on the values set out in the accompanying Code of Ethics, namely Integrity Respect Responsibility and draws on the Victorian Institute of Teaching s Standards of Professional Practice, and Codes of Conduct for teachers developed by schools and other registration authorities. PURPOSE The Code of Conduct codifies what is already common practice within the teaching profession. Its purpose is to: promote adherence to the values teachers see as underpinning their profession provide a set of principles which will guide teachers in their everyday conduct and assist them to solve ethical dilemmas affirm the public accountability of the teaching profession promote public confidence in the teaching profession. The Code of Conduct is not a disciplinary tool. The Code of Conduct will not cover every situation. There may be policies or procedures set down by the sector/school in which the teacher works, or there may be specific issues that are covered by an industrial agreement or award. SECTION 1: PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT Teachers professional conduct is characterised by the quality of the relationships they have with their students, their students parents (guardians and caregivers), families and communities and their colleagues. RELATIONSHIPS WITH STUDENTS PRINCIPLE 1.1: TEACHERS PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL STUDENTS TO LEARN The main focus of teaching is student learning. Teachers demonstrate their commitment to student learning by: a. knowing their students well, respecting their individual differences and catering for their individual abilities b. maintaining a safe and challenging learning environment c. accepting professional responsibility for the provision of quality teaching d. having high expectations of every student, recognising and developing each student s abilities, skills and talents 1 Teach er m eans all p er son s r egist ered und er t h e Education and Training Reform Act 2006 Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) Professional Experience Handbook Appendix Page 2

5 e. considering all viewpoints fairly f. communicating well and appropriately with their students. PRINCIPLE 1.2: TEACHERS TREAT THEIR STUDENTS WITH COURTESY AND DIGNITY Teachers: a. work to create an environment which promotes mutual respect b. model and engage in respectful and impartial language c. protect students from intimidation, embarrassment, humiliation or harm d. enhance student autonomy and sense of self worth and encourage students to develop and reflect on their own values e. respect a student s privacy in sensitive matters, such as health or family problems, and only reveal confidential matters when appropriate. That is: if the student has consented to the information being used in a certain way to prevent or lessen a serious threat to life, health, safety or welfare of a person (including the student) as part of an investigation into unlawful activity if the disclosure is required or mandated by law to prevent a crime or enforce the law f. refrain from discussing students personal problems in situations where the information will not be treated confidentially g. use consequences commensurate with the offence when disciplining students. PRINCIPLE 1.3: TEACHERS WORK WITHIN THE LIMITS OF THEIR PROFESSIONAL EXPERTISE In fulfilling their role, teachers carry out a wide range of responsibilities. They support student by knowing their strengths and the limits of their professional expertise. Teachers: a. seek to ensure that they have the physical, mental and emotional capacity to carry out their professional responsibilities b. are aware of the role of other professionals and agencies and when students should be referred to them for assistance c. are truthful when making statements about their qualifications and competencies. PRINCIPLE 1.4: TEACHERS MAINTAIN OBJECTIVITY IN THEIR RELATIONSHIPS WITH STUDENTS In their professional role, teachers do not behave as a friend or a parent. They: a. interact with students without displaying bias or preference b. make decisions in students best interests c. do not draw students into their personal agendas d. do not seek recognition at the expense of professional objectivity and goals. PRINCIPLE 1.5: TEACHERS ARE ALWAYS IN A PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE STUDENTS IN THEIR SCHOOL, WHETHER AT SCHOOL OR NOT Teachers hold a unique position of influence and trust that should not be violated or compromised. They exercise their responsibilities in ways that recognise that there are limits or boundaries to their relationships with students. The following examples outline some of those limits. A professional relationship will be violated if a teacher: a. has a sexual relationship with a student b. uses sexual innuendo or inappropriate language and/or material with students touches a student without a valid reason Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) Professional Experience Handbook Appendix Page 3

6 c. holds conversations of a personal nature or has contact with a student via written or electronic means including , d. letters, telephone, text messages or chat lines, without a valid context e. accepts gifts, which could be reasonably perceived as being used to influence them, from students or their parents. A professional relationship may be compromised if a teacher: a. attends parties or socialises with students b. invites a student or students back to their home, particularly if no-one else is present. RELATIONSHIPS WITH PARENTS (GUARDIANS, CAREGIVERS), FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES PRINCIPLE 1.6: TEACHERS MAINTAIN A PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH PARENTS (GUARDIANS AND CAREGIVERS) Teachers should be respectful of and courteous to parents. Teachers: a. consider parents perspectives when making decisions which have an impact on the education or wellbeing of a student b. communicate and consult with parents in a timely, understandable and sensitive manner c. take appropriate action when responding to parental concerns. PRINCIPLE 1.7: TEACHERS WORK IN COLLABORATIVE RELATIONSHIPS WITH STUDENTS FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES Teachers recognise that their students come from a diverse range of cultural contexts and seek to work collaboratively with students families and communities within those contexts. RELATIONSHIPS WITH COLLEAGUES PRINCIPLE 1.8: COLLEGIALITY IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE WORK OF TEACHERS Teachers demonstrate collegiality by: a. treating each other with courtesy and respect b. valuing the input of their colleagues c. using appropriate forums for constructive debate on professional matters d. sharing expertise and knowledge in a variety of collaborative contexts e. respecting different approaches to teaching f. providing support for each other, particularly those new to the profession g. sharing information relating to the wellbeing of students. SECTION 2: PERSONAL CONDUCT PRINCIPLE 2.1: THE PERSONAL CONDUCT OF A TEACHER WILL HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE PROFESSIONAL STANDING OF THAT TEACHER AND ON THE PROFESSION AS A WHOLE Although there is no definitive boundary between the personal and professional conduct of a teacher, it is expected that teachers will: a. be positive role models at school and in the community b. respect the rule of law and provide a positive example in the performance of civil obligations c. not exploit their position for personal or financial gain d. ensure that their personal or financial interests do not interfere with the performance of their duties e. act with discretion and maintain confidentiality when discussing workplace issues. SECTION 3: PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCE Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) Professional Experience Handbook Appendix Page 4

7 PRINCIPLE 3.1: TEACHERS VALUE THEIR PROFESSIONALISM, AND SET AND MAINTAIN HIGH STANDARDS OF COMPETENCE Teachers: a. are knowledgeable in their areas of expertise b. are committed to pursuing their own professional learning c. complete their duties in a responsible, thorough and timely way. PRINCIPLE 3.2: TEACHERS ARE AWARE OF THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS THAT PERTAIN TO THEIR PROFESSION.

28 Appendix 5 Sample Swinburne Online Introductory Letter Dear Director Thank you for agreeing to meet with one of our Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) Pre-service Teachers, with a view to considering a teaching placement in your early childhood setting. Professional experience is an integral part of the education programs at Swinburne Online (SOL). Through experiencing the roles and responsibilities of a teacher and pedagogical leader, Pre-service Teachers have the opportunity to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to become a competent member of the teaching profession. The Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) incorporates 90 days of supervised Professional Experience in a variety of educational settings, including child care centres, kindergartens/preschools and primary schools. Pre-service Teachers undertake a total of six Professional Experience placements throughout the course that build on and extend existing knowledge and skills. Pre-service Teachers complete their professional Experience in a different educational setting for each placement and teach at a different level. Pre-service Teachers may teach in Government, Catholic or Independent schools. Pre-service Teachers cannot complete a practicum placement in an education setting where they are already employed (e.g. as an educator, teacher aide, technical assistant or administrator). Pre-service Teachers cannot complete a practicum placement in an education setting where family members or close friends are employed by or attend the setting. On a first Professional Experience Pre-service Teachers will be observing, recording, collecting and gathering information. They will work with small groups of children to build positive respectful relationships and plan, implement and evaluate three learning experiences. Before Pre-service Teachers can undertake a Professional Experience in a school, they must have: Completed the content of the associated Professional Practice Unit(s); Completed the content of any pre-requisite units; A National Police Clearance (as each State or Territory requires); A Working With Children Clearance (as each State or Territory requires). We sincerely hope you will consider supporting our student in your early childhood setting on their Professional Experience. I am very keen to support both the student and you as an education setting. If you have any further questions or enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
