This guidance offers a framework to support the thinking and decision making around ethical practice. It does not offer answers to ethical dilemmas but proposes some ways of approaching them. It is purely concerned with the ethics of delivering purchased services by EPs to a range of commissioners, such as academies, individuals and training courses.
Our focus is on safeguarding the interests of the client and promoting ethical behaviour, attitudes and judgements on the part of EPs in order to uphold the highest standards of professionalism.
This guidance is not concerned with the ethics or law relating to employment practice, although we could expect PEPs and other managers to have regard to wider ethical issues relating to the wellbeing and career development of employees.
