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

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. As part of our review we held a public consultation which ran from 14 September to 14 December 2018. We would like to thank everyone who responded to the consultation or attended one of our focus groups or stakeholder events. Read the consultation report .

The revised Code comes into force from 1st September 2019. All registrants should have now received a hard copy of the Code. If you have not received it, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Download the Code .
