Professional Ethics Education

3.9 hour module

About this module

Professional ethics education (PEE) is about giving people the confidence to do the right thing, whatever the situation. It can equip people with the understanding of how a situation affects judgement so they are able to apply and understand it in context.

The course will explore the origin of ethics, the relationship between ethics, morality and law and the difference between ethical problems and dilemmas, and ultimately, why it matters for you as a person working in a defence environment.
