The word ethics comes from the Greek word ethos meaning ‘character’ and is used to describe ways of being, thinking and acting based on a person’s values and virtues. A code of ethics, distinct from your own personal values, is a set of clearly defined and distinctive values and virtues regarded as important by a profession. It usually includes key statements and commitments that guide professionals about how to act in relation to those they work with.
This module, presented by Catharine Hydon, extends upon the revised ECA Code of Ethics and examines what it means to be ethical and how early childhood educators can use the Code of Ethics to strengthen relationships with children, families, colleagues, societies and the profession. This module also includes interviews with various early childhood educators and shows how they apply the ECA Code of Ethics into everyday situations.
Suitable for early childhood education and care professionals at all stages of their careers. This module will take an estimated one hour to complete.
This module is available to purchase individually, or as a part of a Learning Hub Annual Subscription.
Completing Working with the ECA Code of Ethics will contribute 1 hour of NESA Registered PD addressing standard 7.1.2 and 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
