Trusted eSafety Provider Program

Individuals and organisations delivering high quality online safety education programs in schools can apply to become a Trusted eSafety Provider (TEP). 

This program replaces the previous Certified Training Provider Scheme, which ended in September 2019.

Why be a Trusted eSafety Provider?

Trusted eSafety Providers are quality online safety education providers who have had their online safety content endorsed by eSafety.

When schools come to choose an online safety education expert, they can do so with confidence, as Providers meet a high threshold and are up to date with the latest online safety research, trends and practices.


To become a Trusted eSafety Provider, all applicants must download and read the Application Pack which can be found at the link below.

To have your application considered in a timely manner, please take note of the upcoming application intake periods.

Intake periods

  • Applications open on 2 December 2019, close on 31 January 2020
  • Applications open on 2 March 2020, close on 25 April 2020

Community of Practice sessions

If your organisation becomes a Trusted eSafety Provider, you are required to attend a minimum of two Community of Practice sessions for each financial year. The eSafety Community of Practice brings together TEPs who share a common purpose of understanding best practice approaches, to foster collaboration and support continuous improvement. This is to provide Australian school communities with the highest quality of online safety education and programs.

You can find out more information about this requirement in the Application Pack.

  • Mandatory: Pre-recorded Program overview and Community of Practice orientation video which will count as one CoP (to view at own convenience)
