Accreditation Terms and Conditions - Face to Face

Terms and Conditions for Applicants and Applicant Schools registering for the
Accreditation Course for Teachers in Ethnic Schools
Commencing on or after 1/1/2020

  • The Ethnic Schools Association of SA Inc (ESASA) is responsible for all aspects of this course.

  • Bookings will be acknowledged on the screen at the end of the booking process. The authorised Ethnic School Administrator will be advised when final event reminders are sent.

  • Applicants must have recorded on their online profile a current DHS Working with Children Check and a current attendance certificate for Child Safe Environments Training. If these conditions are not met, registrations will be cancelled and the applicant advised.

  • The cost for the course is $20.00 and will be invoiced to the applicant’s ethnic school.

  • Courses have a maximum enrolment of 30 participants but may be cancelled if less than 15 participants are confirmed. If applications fall below 15 participants, applicant schools and participant will be notified and offered a subsequent course.

  • Applicant ethnic schools acknowledge that after accepting a position in a course for a teacher, the applicant may only withdraw no later than 7 days prior to the course commencement date. Failure to provide sufficient notice will incur a $100.00 penalty to be invoiced to the applicant ethnic school and will be due and payable by that ethnic school. The penalty may be waived at ESASA’s discretion only and in considering any waiver, ESASA may require the applicant ethnic school to provide additional documentation to confirm reasons for non-attendance.

  • While all efforts are made to ensure courses go ahead as scheduled, ESASA reserves the right to cancel or reschedule training courses without penalty to applicants or applicant’s schools.

  • Places approved on courses are not transferrable to other applicants.

  • At no time shall ESASA be responsible for any damages, costs, losses or expenses suffered or incurred by participants in connection with any courses which are either rescheduled or cancelled.

  • All sessions will be conducted at the Education Development Centre at 4 Milner Street, Hindmarsh unless otherwise advised.

  • Off street parking is available at 58 Orsmond Street, Hindmarsh. On street parking is also available in the vicinity of the venue.

  • Applicants must arrive on time for all sessions. Late arrival may mean that the applicant is excluded for that session.

  • Children must not be brought to sessions.

  • ESASA will provide some refreshments at all sessions. Applicants will be responsible for bringing their own food – especially for full day sessions.

  • If applicants have personal responsibilities (e.g. prayer or medical responsibilities), these should be negotiated with the course presenter to the presenter’s satisfaction. Failure to do so may mean that the applicant will need to attend one or more sessions of the course again.

  • Applicants must attend the first day/night scheduled for their course. Failure to do so will automatically exclude the applicant from the remainder of that course and the applicant will be deemed to be a “non-attendee” with a $100.00 penalty invoked as above.

  • Applicants, who miss any sessions (or parts of sessions) of the course must attend those sessions on a future course.

  • The requirements for completion of this course are:

    • (1) Attendance at all course sessions – 24 hours duration – as outlined in the course documentation

    • (2) Attendance at a classroom observation approved by ESASA (refer course documentation)

    • (3) Submission of a written assignment relating to the classroom observation (refer course
      documentation)

Once all course requirements have been met, ESASA will provide written confirmation of that and the applicant will be invited to receive their certificate at the next graduation ceremony.


  • ESASA reserves the right at any time to review and revise these terms and conditions and introduce other terms and conditions that it deems reasonable.

  • The term applicant and participant will be taken to mean the same individual.
