About Working with Children Check


You need a Working with Children Check if you work, or intend to work, as an employee or volunteer, in a child-related area.

Anyone over 14, who does child-related work more than seven days a year, must have a Working with Children Check. It is an offence to do child-related work without a Working with Children Check.

Working with Children Checks are valid for five years, regardless of where you work.


Before you apply

Confirm that you do not have an existing Working with Children Check.

You can conduct a Working with Children Check search to check whether you or an employee has a valid Working with Children Check.

The search needs to include the applicant’s Unique ID. If you do not have access to this number, you can perform a search to get your Unique ID. You will need the email address that you used on your application.

If you're not sure whether you have a Working with Children Check, you can contact the Screening Unit.

If you apply for a Working with Children Check, you will not also need a vulnerable person-related employment check, or a general employment probity check.
