Working with Children Check
Students accepting a place in this course are required to participate in a number of professional placements throughout their program. In order to participate in professional experience it is the responsibility of each student to ensure that they are able to successfully complete the child protection screening required in their state. Students, who are not cleared for working with children and therefore not be able to be placed in a compulsory professional placement, will not be able to complete their course.
In Victoria, all students must apply for and obtain a Working With Children Check before they will be permitted to participate in the Professional Experience program.
There are no exceptions to this requirement and no student will be placed in a school without a valid Working With Children Check.
Students must obtain an application form for a Working With Children Check (WWCC) stamped with a University Stamp at Enrolment or during the enrolment period. It is the student's responsibility to submit the application form and, upon receiving the Working With Children Check/Card, submit the original Working With Children Check/Card and a copy of the original to Professional Experience personnel at the appropriate campus.
The Professional Experience personnel will sight the original Working With Children Check/Card, verify its authenticity and return it to the student. The copy will be placed in the student's Professional Experience file. Students must carry the WWCC every time they visit a school or work with children as part of their University Course.
International students must obtain and present their relevant police check from their home country and from any other country/ies where they have been domiciled for twelve months or more for the last ten years. These police checks must be sighted and authenticated before students will be permitted to undertake a Professional Experience in schools.
