Professional development – OSHC

OSHC information sessions provide information, advice, support, resources, and training and development regarding school age care practices and the effective management of OSHC services.

Contract management information session

When an OSHC service is outsourced on a SA government school site, the principal is responsible for actively managing the licence and services agreement with the third party provider.

Each site with a licence and services agreement is required to have a contract management plan (Word 289KB).

The session is aimed at principals and school governing council members that have an on-site third party provider, or are working through the procurement process. It aims to provide an overview of the contract management plan and what is required from sites.
