The principles that outline the ethical standards that QORF expects its members to aspire to and adopt in order to guide their operations and decision-making. QORF members are commonly involved in activities and situations where people trust them to be professional and competent. It is imperative that QORF Members conduct themselves, their businesses and activities in a way that upholds that faith and the professional reputation of the Federation.

Protect the natural environments they operate in by adopting a minimal impact approach to their activities.

Assist all participants to realise their full potential and to stimulate the spirit of enquiry and the acquisition of knowledge through quality teaching practices.

Act honestly, fairly and properly in dealings with participants, other members and the general public.

Protect staff and participants’ rights to privacy and confidentiality with respect to information sought and received.

Refrain from intentionally spreading false or misleading information, whether written, spoken or implied.

Refrain from knowingly using or being party to improper or illegal methods and practices in organisational and operational activities.

Refrain from intentionally compromising the professional reputation of any QORF member.

Ensure staff continue to acquire and maintain professional skills and knowledge, thereby improving personal competence, as well as the knowledge base of our association. At no time should staff or members provide false or misleading information about their skills or qualifications.
