Working with Children Check
During 2013 the NSW Government implemented new regulations in relation to Working with Children Checks (WWCC). This new regulation includes new procedures that must be undertaken by people wishing to work with children either as employees, volunteers or contractors BEFORE they can do so.
It light of these new regulations it is important for the College to share with you, our parent body, the detail of these new regulations so that should you wish to volunteer at the College in ANY capacity during 2014 and beyond, you are fully equip with the correct and acceptable procedure to follow prior to undertaking any volunteer activity. Please note: The new Working with Children Check is free but does take some time and effort so you are encouraged to undertake the check well in advance of any volunteer activity you may wish to be available for.
Any person wishing to volunteer at the College must;
