Personal conduct and behaviour

Misconduct is any personal conduct or behaviour that is deemed inappropriate by TAFE Queensland.

All students are to treat others with respect and fairness at all times and expect the same in return. Bullying and harassment of students or staff is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. All students must follow the classroom rules and dress code set out by your teacher. Unlawful activities will be reported to the police.

For further information regarding Misconduct please refer to the TAFE Queensland Policy.
