Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct is a set of policy, outlining the norms, rules, responsibilities and proper practices of Teacher Education Institutions.

The code articulates the values that Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) wishes to foster in staff, students and co- workers and in doing so, defines desired behavior.

The code of conduct is recognized and endorsed by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MEYS) and other policies relating to the promotion of safe, conducive and positive teaching and learning environment.

The code of conduct sets the standards of professional behavior for teachers, administrator and co- workers in their relationship with learners, their colleagues and parents. It also provides principles to guide professionalism and promote a positive learning environment and well-being of the learners.
