The Working With Children Check (WWCC) is a requirement for anyone who works or volunteers in child-related work in NSW. It involves a National Police Check (criminal history record check) and a review of reportable workplace misconduct.
The outcome of a check is either a clearance to work with children or a bar against working with children. If cleared, your check will be valid for five years, however it will be continuously monitored for any new relevant offences or workplace records to ensure that the check remains current.
If you're applying because you're a paid employee or self-employed, there's a fee for the WWCC. If you're a volunteer, a student on a professional placement, potential adoptive parents or an authorised carer, you won't need to pay the fee.
