Course Overview

This immersive course explains what conflicts of interest are, how to determine what constitutes a conflict of interest and whether you need to report a potential conflict of interest to your organisation.

The Assessment

Learners are quizzed on their understanding throughout the course. At the end of the module, learners are tested on evidence of conflicts of interest at Child Safe Systems. The organisation has a reputation rating of 10. For every question answered incorrectly by giving the wrong advice, learners risk bring down the company’s reputation. To successfully complete the course, learners must pass the assessment challenge by answering 80% of the questions correctly and maintain the company’s reputation. Learners can also take the assessment again to improve their score.

Identifying Conflicts of Interest

Conflicts of interest have the potential to impact the impartiality of a person or the situation they are dealing with. In professional life, a conflict of interest means that the integrity of an employee’s actions or judgement has been compromised (or is perceived to be compromised) – usually for some type of personal gain.

To identify potential conflicts of interests, individuals can start by considering a conflict of interest as a competing interest which can threaten the professional or ethical order of organisations and which have the ability to undermine the confidence placed in certain individuals.


If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

A conflict of interest occurs when an individual has competing interests or loyalties which impairs their judgment and decision-making. A conflict of interest causes an employee to experience a struggle between diverging interests, points of view, or allegiance. To prevent a breach of trust or loss of reputation, employees are required to avoid any behaviours that could potentially signal a conflict of interest.

If a conflict of interest is not disclosed and the associated activity is not approved, or the individual continues despite this, then it is considered illegal. This is why many businesses tend to have policies and procedures in place to avoid conflict of interests occurring in the first place.

A disclosure is a statement made declaring a potential conflict of interest. If a conflict of interest is disclosed beforehand and the person is given the approval to continue, then the conflict of interest is considered legal. Disclosure is important for compliance and to ensure the integrity and reputation of an individual and a business.
