New Working with Children Check sessions – Wollongong
A new Working With Children Check will start in NSW in 2013. The previously advised start date of 11 February is no longer applicable. A rescheduled start date will be advised in early 2013. Until the start of the new check, the current check continues.
Free one-hour information sessions are being held regularly throughout NSW. The next sessions in Wollongong will be on Friday 15 March. Follow this link to register for the session http://kids.nsw.gov.au/director/working/newcheck/informationsessions.cfm?nPageNum=3
Under the new check:
- workers and volunteers will apply for their own check once every five years
- employers will verify a child-related worker’s or volunteer’s clearance number
- the same Working With Children Check will apply to everyone – paid workers, self-employed people and volunteers
- everyone with a clearance will be continuously monitored for serious sex or violence offenses.
There can only be two results for a new Working With Children Check – a clearance or a bar. People with a bar may not work or volunteer in child-related roles.
- Easy to access: Online applications, online verifications, online employer registration (no online forms will be available until the start date).
- Cost: The new check will be free for volunteers and cost $80 for paid workers and self-employed people. A volunteer check cannot be used for paid work with children.
