Approved panel of providers (APP)

What the panel does

The department has a state-wide approved panel of providers who offer wellbeing, learning and engagement services like:

  • case management
  • flexible learning programs
  • student mentoring.

The panel supports schools to manage risks associated with engaging non-government service providers. They make sure providers have met all of the department’s child protection requirements and quality standards.

If your school needs a wellbeing, learning and engagement service provider, you will need to make sure they are on the approved panel of providers (PDF 107KB) list.

How to get on the panel

Anyone who wants to provide wellbeing, learning and engagement services to schools must go through a selection process before they sign a deed of agreement with the Minister for Education and Child Development.

Organisations can apply to be on the panel at any time by applying through the tender process or contacting us at decd.studentengagement [at] sa.gov.au.
