"Best Choices" Ethics Training -- Modules 1 to 4

Join colleagues on Saturday, January 25 at 9:00 a.m. at 1371 Chief Billy Drive, Squamish, BC for Modules 1 and 2 of "Best Choices: The Ethical Journey" workshop series and on February 25 for Modules 3 and 4! Please note that you must register for Module One in order to register for Module Two. Each module is a pre-requisite for the following module.

Why is Ethics training important?
Professionals in the Early Care & Learning sector work with one of the most vulnerable groups in society – young children. The quality of the interactions between young children and their caregivers has a significant, enduring impact on children’s lives. The intimacy of the relationship and the potential that exists to do harm call for a commitment on the part of early childhood educators to the highest standards of ethical practice.

ECEBC recognizes its responsibility to promote ethical practices and attitudes on the part of Early Care & Learning professionals. This four-part series guides participants on a journey of ethical discovery and awareness. Participants will have the opportunity to explore personal values, beliefs and assumptions, and examine the complexities in ethical decision making.

Module One guides participants through an exploration of their personal beliefs, values and ethics. Participants will examine what an ethical dilemma is using these systems as a point of reference. This module is a prerequisite for the remaining ethics training modules in this series. This Module is a pre-requisite for Module Two.

Module Two guides participants on the purpose, structure and benefits of a professional code of ethics. Following the eight principles identified in ECEBC’s Code of Ethics, participants will experience and understand how a code of ethics can guide practice. This module is a pre-requisite for Module Three.
