New requirement for Victorian Institute of Teachers (VIT) registered teachers
VIT registered teachers and early childhood service workers continue to be exempt from holding a WWC Check but from 1 September 2019, must notify Working with Children Check Victoria (WWCCV) of any child-related work they do outside of their school or early childhood service based position (whether paid or voluntary).
If a teacher’s VIT registration is suspended or cancelled, WWCCV may notify the organisations listed that the teacher exemption no longer applies.
To notify WWCCV of their other child-related work, teachers must complete the 'Teacher notification' form. This form must be completed before the end of the 2019 school year.
From time to time, there are updates that affect the Working with Children Check, like changes to legislation or fees. Sign up to our mailing list to stay up to date.
