This book examines the differences between codes of conduct and codes of ethics, the purpose of these codes, how they are developed - including their rationale and content - and the various activities involved in their implementation. For a code of conduct to be effective, implementation stages must be carefully addressed to ensure that the application and enforcement of the code, including its "intended application", are fair and appropriate. The use of the code, specifically by teachers and relevant authorities, is outlined and the various responses of stakeholders to the value and use of codes are reviewed. Many examples of codes are provided as illustrations.
