The Code of Conduct for Teachers and Other Education Personnel in Sierra Leone
This Code of Conduct is not an isolated entity as it complements policies in education, the work of MEYS, terms and conditions of service for teachers, other education personnel and other official sources applicable to all members of the teaching profession. The conditions of service are directed towards the provision of appropriate punitive measures and sanctions for acts of official misdemeanour, and compensation/incentives for effective and efficient services as contained in the Collective Agreement between teachers, other education personnel and employing agencies including the government. The Code is a composite of rules and norms of behaviour to create a safe, constructive, positive learning and work environment. It is expected of every teacher and other education personnel to emulate the work culture envisioned in the Code.
The Code of Conduct sets out standards of professional behaviour for teachers and other education personnel in their relationships with learners, their colleagues, parents and the general public.
