Working with Children (Child Protection)
The Child Protection (Working With Children) Act 2012 makes it an offence for a person convicted of a serious sex offence (a prohibited person) to apply for, undertake or remain in, child related employment whether paid or unpaid.
Therefore, it is a requirement by the College that all Staff, volunteers and students undergo this screening process. This will be done by filling the Working with Children Form – Prohibited Employment Declaration and Working with Children Form – Background Check Consent at Enrolment and at Staff induction or when a volunteer commences work at the College. In addition individuals will need to comply with the state requirements for a Working With Children Check (NSW, VIC, QLD) where a background check is conducted by the required authority. A Police Check application form will need to be submitted before providing the required formal identification to the Roads & Maritime Service.
