Information about professional development opportunities for OSHC staff can be found on this page.
A joint project with the University of SA is exploring how to incorporate OSHC practicums as part of education degrees.
An opportunity exists for university students studying in the field of education to supplement their placements with an additional experience in an OSHC and/or vacation care setting. This allows students to see OSHC as another element of education and care component of school.
The integrated nature of OSHC services on sites can support universities with alternatives or extension to student placements.
