Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct

  1. The paramount consideration of all members at all times is safety:
    • Safety of Clients
    • Safety of General Public
    • Safety of Members
    • Safety of Students
  2. Members must ensure reasonable steps are taken to create a safe environment for all activities. These activities should follow relevant regulations or best practices, especially when there are no specific regulations. They must also be appropriate for the age, experience and abilities of the participants.
  1. Members are required to consistently uphold the rights, dignity, and value of every individual, treating everyone with fairness and respect in all interactions.
  2. Members must follow Foyht’s Standards of Practice, which can be found on the Foyht website. Foyht does not tolerate harassment or discrimination based on sex, race, colour, nationality, national or ethnic origin, marital status, sexual orientation, age, disability, political or religious belief.
  3. When acting in a professional capacity, members must maintain the highest standards of behaviour and appearance and adhere to all Foyht policies.
  4. Members often gather personal information about their students or clients during their working relationship. Both parties must agree on what information is considered confidential and cannot be shared with a third party without the student’s or client’s express approval. However, confidentiality does not prevent the disclosure of information if the member is alleged to breach this Code of Ethics.
  5. Members’ advertising regarding qualifications or services should be truthful and professionally restrained. It should not imply affiliation with an organisation in a way that falsely suggests sponsorship or accreditation by that organisation.
  6. Members should avoid publicly criticising fellow members. Differences of opinion should be addressed personally, and more serious disputes should be referred to Foyht.
  7. Members should not engage in actions that go against the interests of Foyht or their students/clients, or that could damage Foyht’s reputation.
  8. Members should regularly seek opportunities to enhance their professional development and self-awareness. They should welcome feedback from their students/clients and be able to explain their actions to them.
  9. Members must only operate within the scope of their qualifications.
  10. Members must ensure they have adequate Public & Malpractice Liability insurance (and Employers Liability Insurance where appropriate). Fully paid-up members are only insured when acting within their qualifications; if a member acts outside of the remit of their qualifications, they may not be covered by their insurance.
