The continuous checking services for those in child-related work in New South Wales.
Adults who work or volunteer in child-related work in NSW must have a Working with Children Check (WWCC). Employers and organisations must verify the WWCC details and keep records of anyone they have in child-related work.
A clearance is for 5 years
A NSW WWCC clearance lasts for 5 years and is continuously monitored, even if the holder moves jobs.
A WWCC application or renewal is free for volunteers and costs $80 for paid workers.
Employers must verify
Holders must give their employer or organisation their WWC ar APP number and other details so the employer can verify online that the number is valid.
Employees and volunteers are responsible for keeping their Working with Children Check details up to date.
