  • promote the rights of young people and their parents and guardians
  • Advise and counsel young people for the purpose of extending and developing their interests, awareness and responsibility of young people themselves;
  • Assist young people in the transition to adulthood by respecting and understanding their needs and the opportunities available to them
  • respecting the privacy and confidence shared by young people, while upholding those professionally established protection and employment guidelines developed to support and protect young people and ensuring that the welfare and personal safety of the young person is at all times primary;

  • Create and ensure the maintenance of safe and healthy settings that foster the physical, intellectual, social, emotional, moral and spiritual development of young people;
  • Avoid participation in, and inform appropriate authorities of practices which are disrespectful, degrading, dangerous, exploitative, intimidating, psychologically damaging or physically harmful to young people;
  • Protect young people from abuse and neglect ;
  • Report abuse and neglect so that action can be taken;
  • Avoid commissioning or assisting an infringement of the law ;
  • Avoid active collusion with young people in evasion of the consequences of illegal acts, where laws seek to protect children, young people and the wider community from harm;

  • avoid relationships with young people which involve emotional dependency;
  • avoid sexual intimacy with young people, both inside and outside work ;
  • be sensitive to the use of inappropriate words and language ;
  • respect the physical and emotional privacy of young people ;

  • (c) All staff working with young people work with a variety of individuals and agencies to secure provision and meet the needs of young people. This work should have as its prime focus the meeting of needs of those young people and the encouragement of collaborative partnerships which enables employers and young people to further their interests and create new and more varied learning opportunities by being more involved in decision making processes. Those working with young people will need to assure parents and other agencies that their planned intervention and processes are transparent and comprehensible, and that all staff working with young people are appropriately trained and supported.
