Record checks

Applicants for all positions must provide the following two documents:

  1. Working With Children Check (Criminal Record Check)
  2. Criminal History Record Check (not more than one year old)

The Working With Children Check (Criminal Record Check) requires people who start or continue to work with children to have a National criminal check.

The Working With Children Check Form is available from certain Australia Post outlets throughout the state. A list of participating Australia Post outlets can be found here.

An application for the Working With Children Check must be made in person. When lodging the application, applicants need to present sufficient documents to meet 100 points identification criteria. Please note this is a personal expense.

This State Legislation requirement is in addition to a Criminal History Record Check that is obtained by applying to the Screening Unit at the Department of Education and Training for Teaching Staff or the Federal Police Clearance.
