DEC's Code of conduct

The NSW Department of Education and Communities is committed to improving the social and economic well being of the people of NSW through the provision of high quality education and training.


As employees of the NSW Department of Education and Communities, we have significant influence in developing an informed, dynamic and democratic society by providing experiences that inspire and facilitate teaching and learning. 

We can do this by promoting an organisational culture of innovative thinking and continuous self-development and by creating a place where people are proud to work.

The Code of Conduct draws on the Department of Education and Communities' Statement of Ethics and the values that underpin our work: fairness, respect, integrity and responsibility.
