Trainers' Code of Conduct
As educators we are committed to helping our students achieve their varied learning objectives and encouraging them to embrace the challenges and opportunities of Life Long Learning. Trainers occupy a key role in that process.
This Trainers' Code of Conduct is designed to outline a umber of principles that underpin our approach to adult education. This trainers' code of conduct support our General Code of Practice and our General Code of Conduct to ensure that we continue to provide consistently high quality courses and support services for our participants.
All trainers are required to participate in the College Induction Program which will outline key operating arrangements that need to be observed. Trainers will also be provided with a Job Description outlining specific responsibilities and our behavioural expectations.
Trainers are to familiarise themselves and comply with:
- This Trainers' Code of Conduct
- The College's Values, General Code of Practice and General Code of Conduct
- The College's Management Policies, Procedures ad guidelines that are relevant to their work.
Have the best interests of their participants in mind and treat them with dignity and fairness, acknowledging the adult environment in which we operate and the varied experience and life skills that participants bring to it.
Ensure that their programs and courses are of high quality and reflect the principles of adult learning. They will recognise and appreciate participants' individual needs and learning styles, provide opportunities for negotiated learning and self-directed learning, encourage ongoing evaluation and positive reinforcement, and create an appropriate, safe and comfortable learning environment.
Be diligent in preparation, delivery, assessment and evaluation of their courses. They will assess and mark work fairly, without favour, and in compliance with issued guidelines.
Acknowledge all participants right to have access to our courses and services regardless of educational background, gender, marital status, sexual preference, race, colour, pregnancy, national origin, ethnic or socio-economic background, physical or intellectual impairment, and religious or political affiliation.
Recognise and respect people with disadvantages by encouraging them to participate and benefit from our programs and support services wherever practicable, although access for all disadvantaged people may be limited by financial resources and available facilities.
Respect participants' and others' rights to privacy and maintain the confidentiality, integrity and security of all personal information entrusted to them in the normal course of their work. They shall not communicate such information including competency results to others without the written permission of the person concerned, unless it would normally be available to the public, or is required by law to be released.
Not solicit or accept remuneration for, or derive benefit from carrying out their duties with the organisation, other than from salary or other payments the organisation makes to them for that work. In particular, Trainers may not take commercial or other advantage of participants arising from their participation in our programs and courses.
Dress appropriately for the course they are conducting and in keeping with the image of the organisation.
Be punctual, well prepared and comply with the requirements set out in the Job Description; ensuring the attainment of the required qualification/s.
Endeavour to ensure that any child at the College premises, owned or leased is protected against any form of child sexual abuse. Although the organisation is mainly an adult education facility some classes are designed for minors, and children are periodically on our premises participating in classes or accompanying adults.
Advise the VET Manager of any instance of sexual harassment, or suspected sexual harassment, and any incidents and/or potential hazards that have occurred or could occur involving employees or participants. Trainers must then complete an incident report and submit it to the VET Manager.
