Code of Professional Conduct and Practice
The Code of Professional Conduct and Practice (the Code) sets out the standards expected of you, and is intended to support and guide your behaviours and judgements as a registrant working in education and training roles in Wales.
Good practice guides
Our suite of guides have been written to complement the Code and aim to support you in complying with it. Each focus on a specific area such as tackling racism, positive working relationships, and using social media responsibly. Be sure to check back as new guides are published regularly.
Professional Learning Passport (PLP)
As education practitioners, continuous reflection, learning, and development are essential to your role. Your PLP, is a flexible online tool specifically designed to help you capture, reflect upon, and share your learning, all with the aim of shaping your ongoing professional development and practice.
EBSCO and Meddwl Mawr
As an added bonus, your PLP gives you free access to EBSCO, the world’s largest full text research database for education professionals, there to help you undertake reading and research to further develop your practice and ideas. Sign up to Meddwl Mawr, our book and journal club, to receive monthly recommendations to interesting EBSCO content.
