7. Working with Children (WWC) Checks and/or VIT registrations

This information applies to the application round for funding in 2022, which has now closed. Updated information will be provided shortly.

All CLS staff, volunteers and committee members must have a current WWC Check (issued in Victoria) OR Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) registration – regardless of whether they have regular contact with students. Copies of all WWC Checks or VIT registration must be kept on file at the CLS. WWC Checks which have been issued in other states are not valid in Victoria.

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

The CLS is not required to provide copies of the WWC Checks or VIT registrations as part of their application but must list the details of all registrations accurately (exactly as the details appear on the cards) in the WWC Check/VIT template available below. Note that the CLS must keep copies of the cards on file.

Information about WWC Checks can be found at http://www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au/.
