Whilst we are a business, employees should act wherever possible in terms of the public interest, for the improvement of the education sector and society as a whole.
Employees must avoid placing themselves under any obligation to people or organisations that might try inappropriately to influence them in their work. They should not act or take decisions in order to gain financial or other material benefits for themselves, their family, or their friends. They must declare and resolve any interests and relationships.
Employees must act and take decisions impartially, fairly and on merit, using the best evidence and without discrimination or bias.
Employees are accountable to North27 for their decisions and actions and must submit themselves to the scrutiny necessary to ensure this.
Employees should act and take decisions in an open and transparent manner.
Employees should be truthful.
Employees should exhibit these principles in their own behaviour. They should actively promote and robustly support the principles and be willing to challenge poor behaviour wherever it occurs.
