September training for OSHC providers

18 September 2023

In response to identified regulatory concerns, the Education Standards Board seeks to improve the safety, health and wellbeing of children in South Australian who attend an Outside School Hours Care service.

In collaboration with the Queensland Children's Activities Network (QCAN), the Education Standards Board has been providing training throughout Term 3 and will provide additional sessions early in term four in three priority areas to build the skills, knowledge and capacity of educators within the South Australian OSHC sector.

Upcoming training sessions

Proactive, Interactive and Effective Supervision in OSHC

Supervision is one of the key functions an educator uses to ensure the safety and wellbeing of children. However, supervision isn't as simple as observing children's play, educators must be both diligent and skillful in responding to children's diverse needs, interests and choices.

Available sessions:

12.00 pm to 2.00 pm, 26 September

6.00 pm to 8.00 pm 26 September


Risk Management in OSHC

Outside School Hours Care Services face external and internal factors and influences that impact day to day operations. Managing risks is vital in supporting services to make informed decisions and protect children from harm and hazard.

Available sessions:

9.30 am to 11.30 am, 27 September


Nominated Supervisor and Responsible Person in Charge

The Education and Care Services National Law Act (2010) and Regulation (2011) require that all services have a Nominated Supervisor. This is an ongoing obligation. An Approved Provider must identify the Nominated Supervisor for the service and provide evidence of that person’s informed consent.

Available sessions:

11.30 am to 1.30 pm, 27 September

9.30 am to 11.30 am, 28 September
