Code of Ethics Awareness Program for the South Australian Public Sector

Version 1.3: October 2019


This awareness program serves as a general introduction and guide to the Code of Ethics for the South Australian Public Sector (“Code of Ethics”). Where examples are provided, the discussion relates to just those examples and does not take into account the individual context and circumstances of scenarios as they might occur in the ‘real world’.

When completing this awareness program, we recommend you refer to the Code of Ethics and keep a copy for future reference.


This is a self-paced training session that should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. As your progress cannot be saved, you will need to complete the course in one sitting.

Once a section is completed a shaded box will appear next to the topic in the menu to indicate completion.

After clicking on the link below, a sign in box requesting your name should appear in the center of the page. This is so your name can appear on the “completion screen” at the end of the program. Your name, progress and completion are not recorded or tracked by the Office of the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment.

NOTE: If the sign in box does not appear, refresh the page until it does.
