Changes were made to the Children’s Guardian Regulation 2021 as part of the introduction of the Residential Care Workers Register.
The following changes* will apply from 18 July 2022
- Only applicants who have reached the referee checking stage of a recruitment process are required to have their information recorded on the residential care workers register.
- Alignment of the definition of ‘applicant’ with the definition in the Children’s Guardian Act 2019.
From 1 September
- The definition of ‘residential care worker’ in the Children's Guardian Amendment Act 2022 commences. From this date, certain security workers, caseworkers and administrative workers will be prescribed, by regulation, as residential care workers. Workers who provide statutory out-of-home care, or supported out-of-home care, in a residential setting will be included in the definition of ‘residential care worker’ in the Children’s Guardian Act 2019.
*Please note that these changes conform with the original intent of the residential care workers register provisions of the Children's Guardian Regulation 2022 and were required due to technical amendments made to the Children’s Guardian Act 2019 by the Children’s Guardian Amendment Act 2022.
