Practical ethics for state government

Equip yourself with the skills to identify and manage conflicts of interest and be able to promote ethical behaviour in daily interactions. This half-day course is designed to help officers assess and respond to ethical dilemmas and understand core government values.

This interactive course challenges participants with ethical questions in various scenarios. You will work through individual and group activities relating to conflicts of interest, appropriate use of your position and recordkeeping. You will learn how to make ethical decisions that take key public sector values into account such as integrity, impartiality, accountability and transparency.

At the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • identify ethical dilemmas
  • consider conflicts of interest and other factors before making a decision
  • promote an organisational culture that values high ethical standards.
