Our Values & Code of Conduct

Our College values of Determination, Aspiration, Responsibility and Empathy (DARE) are at the heart of all we do. This code of conduct embodies our values, setting out what we expect from you and what you can expect from us.

You have come to College to develop knowledge, skills and behaviours that will ultimately lead to employment. We therefore have the same high expectations of you that any other professional organisation would have of its employees. The behaviours outlined within this code will support your success and help you to make the most of the opportunities you can access as a student at Creating Tomorrow College.

Aiming for DARE 

I will:

  • Set myself challenging targets
  • Seek to continually improve, and act on feedback from teachers and peers
  • Strive to achieve the best outcomes possible.

The College will:

  • Give you feedback on your learning and work, which will help you to develop new skills and aim for best outcomes
  • Help you record your learning goals, and provide regular reports to parents/ carers/employers

 

Taking Responsibility 

I will:

  • Attend, on time, all my timetabled classes and work placements
  • Actively engage with any lessons and work experience within my programme
  • Report any absence, by phone or email, no later than 8:30am on the day of absence
  • When possible, book appointments outside of College timetabled hours
  • Meet deadlines, and complete assignments and all other programme work
  • Discuss any difficulties I may have with my teacher/staff
  • Not use my mobile phone, or tablet, in class unless invited to do so by a teacher
  • Bring learning materials (e.g. pen and notebook) and equipment to class.

Members of staff will:

  • Ensure that classes will be well-prepared and start on time
  • Mark and return your work promptly, and deliver lessons that are stimulating and engage your attention.

 

Respecting Our College 

I will:

  • Make sure my behaviour does not stop others from learning
  • Treat everyone fairly and with respect
  • Not use language or gestures that may offend others
  • Show respect for my teachers, and other members of staff, by following instructions and responding to requests they make
  • Report any incidents of bullying to a member of staff, or to my class rep.
  • Not spit, drop chewing gum or litter, or sit in corridors
  • Not damage or vandalise resources, equipment or the building
  • Not smoke except in designated areas

The College will:

  • Aim to keep the College environment safe, secure and clean
  • Value and celebrate the diversity of its students, and staff, and ensure that people are not subject to discrimination because of their age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, faith or belief, if they have a disability or are transgender

 

Taking Pride 

I will:

  • Wear my work experience uniform where appropriate
  • Show respect to visitors to the college/Chester House
