Upholding and promoting standards through IfL's code of professional practice
As the professional body for teachers, trainers, tutors and trainee teachers across the further education and skills sector, IfL has developed a Code of Professional Practice. The Code outlines the professional behaviours expected of IfL members for the benefit of learners, employers the profession and the public.
Membership of IfL and adherance to the Code provides public assurance that a member is committed to ensuring the highest standards of practice and recognises their obligations as a professional teacher, trainer, tutor or trainee teacher. Most IfL members have no difficulties abiding by the code, but as in other professions, there is a small number of who sometimes act in a way which threatens public confidence and poses a risk.
The Code will be subject to regular review to ensure it remains relevant and always reflects advances in professional practice.
This section provides members with the information needed regarding procedures for dealing with concerns raised surrounding the professional practice of members.
