Working With Children Check - Barwon Heads Primary School

Working with Children Check

Working with Children Check

To ensure compliance and maximise the safety of the students at BHPS all volunteers are required to hold a current Working With Children Check ( WWCC).

Commencing volunteering

A volunteer can commence work in a school when they provide a receipt as proof they have applied for a WWCC  with the Department of Justice.
Working with Children Check

The WWCC Check is a minimum checking standard set by the Working with Children Act2005 for those who work with children, either on a paid or voluntary basis.

To be a volunteer at a school a Working with Children Card provided by the Department of Justice is required. This card is:

  • valid for 5 years
  • transferable between volunteer organisations
  • free of charge for volunteers, but cannot be used for paid employment.

You can apply for your volunteer WWCC here
