Working with Children Check
The Working with Children Act 2005 (Vic) requires that people who work or volunteer in specific types of child-related work apply for and pass a Working with Children Check.
The Working with Children Check is administered by the Department of Justice and reviews a person’s history to ensure they do not have any relevant criminal offences or findings (from professional disciplinary bodies such as the Victorian Institute of Teaching), that may mean they are not suitable to work with children.
