Professional Standards

Our Province is committed to the principle of life-long learning and of living and working according to the highest standards of personal and professional behaviour. This related to areas of knowledge, competence, behaviour, dress, language, and duty of care. It is the responsibility of every person in the Passionist Family to contribute to a safe and enriching environment for children, young people and vulnerable adults.

There are mandated practices to be observed that require us never to be alone with a child and to report suspected abuse or neglect. More than simply conforming to the obligations required, we must always have an attitude of overriding concern to ensure the safety and well being of every child, young person or vulnerable adult.

The Province has a comprehensive Professional Standards policy.
