  • A commitment to perform official duties with professionalism, care, skill, fairness and diligence and to exercise their given authority for the purposes for which those authorities have been granted;
  • Engaging in conduct which is professional and which has regard to ALTEC College’s interests and policies and which does not bring ALTEC College into disrepute;
  • Treating students, staff and other members or visitors of the college with courtesy, and with respect for their rights, duties and aspirations; and
  • When presenting a professional judgment on a colleague or a student at the request of an appropriate ALTEC College committee or authority (e.g. A committee dealing with appointments, complaints, appeals, or dismissal), the obligation both to the colleague and to ALTEC College to be fair and objective.
  • Follow any lawful and reasonable direction made by the ALTEC College

Employees shall not do anything which could compromise either their or the college position.

Every employee shall:

  • Take reasonable care for the health and safety of persons who are at their place of work and who may be affected by their acts or omissions at work; and
