Working With Children Check

Thank you for your interest in volunteering or working at Richmond Christian College. In order to do this, it is a requirement that you have a Working With Children Check completed.

What is the Working With Children Check?

Working With Children Check logoA Working With Children Check is a requirement for people who work or volunteer in child-related work. It involves a national criminal history check and a review of findings of workplace misconduct.

The result of a Working With Children Check is either a clearance to work with children for five years, or a bar against working with children. Cleared applicants are subject to ongoing monitoring and relevant new records may lead to the clearance being revoked.

The Working With Children Check is fully portable so it can be used for any paid or unpaid child-related work in NSW for as long as the worker remains cleared.

To apply for your Working With Children Check, go to the Kids Guardian website.
