Working with Children Check Instructions

Many of the WIL placements offered at FedUni through external providers such as Health organisations and Education providers require students to complete a Working With Children Check (WWCC). The WWCC is a legal requirement for anyone undertaking paid or voluntary child-related work in all Australian states and territories.

Students must list FedUni as the organisation through which the child-related work is being undertaken. Students who have already obtained and hold a current WWCC must add FedUni as a volunteer organisation.
