caregive arrow Question: How do I get a Police check and WWCC ?

Most parents will require a Working with children check ( WWCC ) and a Police check before employing you.

The WWCC is different to a police check in that it is a detailed search for child-related offences, including employment proceedings and AVOs (Apprehended Violence Orders).

A Federal or State Police Check can be obtained by a babysitter or nanny herself from the local police station for a small fee. The police check will reveal any convictions such as driving offences and theft. However most checks will not reveal any conviction that was more than ten years ago (due to the Spent Convictions Scheme). Please refer to the links below for more information on obtaining checks.
