IfL code of professional practice
Upholding and promoting standards
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 adherence 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 are a small number who sometimes act in a way that threatens public confidence and poses a risk.
The code is subject to regular review to ensure it remains relevant and always reflects advances in professional practice.
