Newer members to Defence will focus primarily on the expectations of the organisation in terms of acceptable conduct. This will be dominated by appreciating the additional standards society holds them to, as well as military law (for ADF), and the moral codes of conduct. Defence’s core values serve as a foundation to this assimilation process. Increasing awareness of acceptable normative behaviour will be complemented with bystander intervention expectations. Ethics and values are closely linked to character development.
