It is a condition of employment in DECD schools and services that all individuals must attend  a full day, face-to-face Responding to Abuse and Neglect – Education and Care (RAN-EC) training session.

This is a requirement for teacher registration in South Australia and is an employment prerequisite in school and children’s services settings.

Please Note: For participants under the age of 18, it is the employers’ responsibility to assess each participant in regard to their age and experience and therefore the appropriateness of attending this course due to the sensitive nature of the content.


This course is run as a full day session in-house at 45 Wakefield Street, Adelaide 5000 or can be provided on-site.

It is important that participants arrive on time and stay for the duration of the training. Due to the requirements of this training certificates will not be issued to participants who miss any part of the day.

** The three-hour refresher session is now done online. Please refer to the Department for Education and Child Development website for more information.
