Consultation on the Code of Professional Conduct and Practice for registrants with the Education Workforce Council (The Code)

We have launched our consultation on a revised draft EWC Code for registrants.

In Wales, anybody working as a teacher or in a learning support role in a maintained school or further education college must be registered with the Education Workforce Council (EWC). The same also applies to work based learning practitioners and qualified youth and youth support workers.

The Code sets out the standards expected of those registered with us and is intended to help and guide their behaviours and judgements, both inside and outside of work. However, the Code also has an important role for learners and the public as it sets out the standards they can expect from anybody working in a teaching and learning role in Wales.

Legislation requires the EWC to review the Code every three years and the public consultation on the revised draft Code will run until 14 December.

We want to hear from as many people as possible, including our registrants, the public and those with an interest in ensuring that all learners in Wales receive a high quality education. We encourage you to give your views and help us to develop a Code that is robust, clear and concise.

You can download the existing Code, revised draft Code and consultation documents here.

Here's our Chief Executive, Hayden Llewellyn to explain why we need your input:

You can also read our new blog post here which explains the consultation in more detail.
