The Royal Commission into child sexual abuse has heard there's been almost a 30 per cent spike in the annual number of child protection reports in the Northern Territory.

Executive Director of the Out of Home Care Division for the Department of Children and Families, Simone Jackson, has defended current case workers' protocols at a hearing in Darwin.

Ms Jackson says she believed the increase was due to better ability for children to report abuse and an increase in occurrences.

She says there's regular training for carers, but that didn't include information about protective behaviours concerning child sexual assault.
