Code of Practice

This Code of Practice, Conduct and Ethics is designed to encourage integrity and responsibility whilst studying at the School, and to ensure Students leaving the school uphold and further the standing of professional therapists and the School. This Code may form the basis for discussion in the event of a complaint against a Student.

1. Students shall be aware of the student relationship and develop a caring attitude.

2. Students shall conduct themselves in an honourable and moral manner at all times.

3. In recognising the unique nature of the individual, Students shall have respect for all.

4. Students should not speak or write disrespectfully of fellow students either publicly or to other students.

5. Students shall work in a cooperative manner with other students.

6. There is a dress code for the school and it is essential that students follow the code in order to present a professional image. Students not in the correct uniform will not be able to perform in the practical sessions.

Case Studies

1. Treatments should be done, written up and submitted for marking at least by the date on scheme of work. Later submissions will be admitted at the discretion of the principal.

2. Case studies are to be written up according to the guide-lines supplied.

3. Case history client names should be anonymous.

4. Students shall respect information obtained in the course of the case study, except where disclosure is required by law. Anonymous anecdotes of the case study progress is a normal part of classroom activity.

5. A student shall practice only within the limits of his/her training and competency.

Disciplinary Procedure

If any of the following matters shall be brought to the notice of the Principal, the primary concern of the School shall be to protect the students and public, namely:

a. conduct which in the opinion of the Principal is likely to bring the School, students or ITEC into disrepute.

b. conviction for a criminal offence involving dishonest, indecency, violence, drugs or alcohol,

c. breach of the School Contract or School Code of Practice and Ethics

d. conduct which is likely to be to the detriment of students/clients.

The School shall after due consideration decide either

a. where the complaint is considered frivolous, trivial or irrelevant to take no further notice.

b. where the complaint is not considered to be of sufficiently serious nature to warrant instant dismissal from the school, to send the student a warning letter, or

c. in any other case to refer the matter to ITEC

Breach

Should a student be unable to attend a class or course for personal reasons or the college withdraws a student for lack of attendance, or failure to deliver course work by required deadlines, they will have no claim to a reimbursement of the course fee or transfer to a later course. In such circumstances a student will be liable for full course fees. Exceptions may be made on production of a medical certificate, or at the discretion of the Principal.
