Code of Conduct

In the education sector the consensus is that the professionalism of teachers and staff is of the highest importance. Professional Codes of Conduct in the education sector consequently represent a keystone of quality teaching and excellence.

Much work has been done since July 1 to ensure that all of the key changes to the Teachers Registration and Standards Act 2004 are being implemented, including a Code of Conduct ‘round-table’ event that was held on the 24th of March 2022 with representatives from across the education sector. 

Staff from the Board welcomed representatives from early childhood, primary and secondary teachers, as well as employer groups, parents, unions, and representatives from other organisations to the Adelaide Pavilion to launch our Code of Conduct consultation. This consultation process will work towards developing a Code of Conduct that will provide teachers in all South Australian schools, preschools, and long day care centres an aspirational resource to guide their conduct as part of one of the most important professions in our community.

This event provided an opportunity for discussion about what a Code of Conduct for the teaching profession should seek to achieve, and also provided a chance for suggestions and workshopping of concepts and ideas.

There will be multiple opportunities to be involved with further rounds of consultation. If you would like to be involved, you can add your name to our email group by contacting
