Professional ethics is a term we attach to certain standards of conduct within the teaching profession. In order for any profession to be respected and to have self-respect, its members must have and live up to these standards. A profession can only grow in stature when its members have respect for themselves and for their contribution as a profession to their society.

A professional standards of conduct can be used as a guide for people entering the teaching profession.
