The community language school must ensure the suitability of anyone working or volunteering at the school, so that children are safe with them.
All community language school staff, volunteers and committee members, regardless of whether they have regular contact with students, must have current WWC Checks or VIT registration If a person holds a current Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) registration they do not need to obtain a WWC Check. Copies of all WWC Checks or VIT registration must be kept on file at the school.

National police checks or other kinds of criminal checks, are not acceptable.

The community language school must provide copies of the WWCCs or VIT registrations as part of their application. In addition, it must list all WWC Check/VIT registration holders separately in the template, to enable cross-checking. The Working With Children Check template has been updated for the 2020 accreditation round and is available here. 

WWC Checks are valid for five years. Information about WWC Checks can be found at
