A code of conduct in simple terms has to do with some rules and regulations to be adhered to, in a particular field of work or place of study.
It consists of sanctions and the manner in which employees are to behave, to ensure efficient service delivery and peaceful coexistence.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) has approved a set of rules of conduct for professional teachers in Ghana.
As a good Samaritan, I have decided to provide some footage of the certified code of conduct approved by the Ghana Education Service.
The code of conduct is documented with the help of educational bodies like the National Association Of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Ghana National Association Of Teachers (GNAT), Ministry Of Women and Children Affairs (MOWAC) and some other recognized educational bodies.
The approved code of conduct had it's content divided into eight parts.
The first part provides an introduction of the code of conduct of teachers.
Part 2 looks at the general definition of misconduct.
This part delves into the context of conduct, the types of conduct set out in the code, breach or non-compliance to some parts of the code, and an overview of the classifications of misconduct.
Part 3 explains the rules of conduct for teachers.
It entails the preparation of lesson notes, exercises for students, attitude towards work, improper use of children's labor among many others.
The fourth part takes a look at penalties to be meted out.
This part classifies penalties into two categories, Category A has to do with penalties given to teachers who are involved in minor misconduct while Category deals with major misconduct.
Part 5 looks at gender-base violations. It focuses on the procedures for reporting gender-based violations.
Part 6 talks about the procedures used for enforcement of the code of conduct. It also looks at the levels of authority for imposing the penalties.
Part 7 focuses on Appeals. This talks about how appeals should be made by teachers and the procedure used by the GES to look into such appeals.
The last part looks at miscellaneous disciplinary actions and bodies which will be available for teachers, if they go against the code of conduct.
Below are some other essential footage from the approved code of conduct provided by GES to professional teachers across the country.
The code of conduct provided by GES guides teachers on the appropriate disciplinary action taken against teachers who fail to comply with the directives provided by the formulators of the code of conduct.
To avoid falling short of these codes of conduct, I will urge every reader to share this content to others who may not be on this news platform.
