Working with Children in Victoria?

You might need the Check.

The Working with Children Check is a screening process for assessing or re-assessing people who work with or care for children in Victoria. 

We take a detailed look at the criminal history, and relevant professional conduct findings, of applicants to ensure we’re assisting to protect children from sexual or physical harm. 

Do I need a Check?
Find out if you need a Check by answering a few questions about your circumstances and what you want to do.
