Working With Children Clearance (WWCC)
Rouse Hill Anglican College has statutory Child Protection responsibilities under revised legislation which became effective on 15 June 2013.
Under the Child Protection [Working With Children] Act 2012 [NSW] and the Child Protection [Working with Children] Regulation 2013 [NSW] the College can only employ persons (who will be engaged in child-related work) who hold a WWCC clearance from the NSW Office of the Children’s Guardian. The College has determined that all employees must hold this clearance.
All Employment Applications must confirm that the applicant holds the required clearance. Production of the WWCC letter will be required at any subsequent interview.
Obtaining WWCC Clearance
- Complete an online application form available at www.kids.nsw.gov.au/check
- When submitted on-line, the applicant will receive an Application Number
- Take this Number together with proof of identity to a NSW Motor Registry
- An $80 (tax deductible) charge applies for a five year clearance.
Most volunteers and all practicum students need to provide a signed Volunteer Undertaking.
The College must also ask candidates to provide documents to support their identity. This must include original documents adding up to a minimum of 100 points as required by the 100 Point Check under the Financial Transaction Reports Act 1988. A range of documents can be used; please read this checklist carefully.
