Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum Professional Learning

SHine SA is the Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) approved training provider for Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum (KS:CPC) professional learning.

All DECD sites are required to provide the KS:CPC at all year levels and all staff delivering the curriculum must complete a full day face-to-face training as outlined in the DECD policy.

Please note: this is not “Responding to Abuse and Neglect” training.

The KS:CPC training is only available to approved organisations.

Do you work within DECD, CESA, AISSA, or are you a pre-service education student from University of South Australia, University of Adelaide, Flinders University or Tabor College?

If you answered Yes, proceed to preferred training option.
