Teaching plays a significant role in developing a knowledgeable, creative, productive and democratic society. The values that underpin the teaching profession are integrity, respect and responsibility.

As a teacher, your expert knowledge should provide experiences that inspire and facilitate student learning. Your professional conduct as a teacher is characterised by the quality of relationships you have with students, parents / caregivers, communities or colleagues.
