Working with Children
If you have any questions regarding this please contact email@example.com
A Working With Children Check is a prerequisite for anyone in child-related work. It involves a national criminal history check and review of findings of workplace misconduct.
The result of a Working With Children Check is either a clearance to work with children for five years, or a bar against working with children. Cleared applicants are subject to ongoing monitoring, and relevant new records may lead to the clearance being revoked.
The Check is fully portable which means it can be used for any paid or unpaid child-related work in NSW for as long as the worker remains cleared.
The Working With Children Check remains free for volunteers.
Do you need a check?
If you are a volunteer or working for Pittwater RSL FC in 2015 you are required to have a Working With Children Check. Not sure if you need one? Take the short quiz, Do you need a Check?
Some volunteers in child-related work may be exempt from the requirement to obtain a Working With Children Check. Please note that regardless of the exemption all volunteers and workers for Pittwater RSL FC have to complete a Stat Declaration before they start to work.
