Victorian Accredited Coaches (Levels 1, 2 & 3)
State Council recommends that all Victorian coaches apply for the “Working with Children Check”.
In 2006, the Victorian Government introduced a new checking system to help protect children under 18 years of age from physical or sexual harm.
The Working with Children (WWC) Check creates a mandatory minimum checking standard across Victoria. The WWC Check helps to keep children safe by preventing those who pose a risk to the safety of children from working with them, in either paid or volunteer work.
The WWC Check is being phased in over five years. If you need a WWC Check, you must apply by the due date for your field of child-related work.
The application forms are available at the Australia Post Office or can be accessed via the internet (www.justice.vic.gov.au/workingwithchildren).
