Motorcycling New South Wales has adopted the Working With Children Check (WWCC) as a prerequisite for anyone in child-related work – paid and voluntary. It involves a national criminal history check and review of findings of workplace misconduct and it applies to anyone who will or will likely have individual / unsupervised contact with children.
The requirement for WWCC checks extends to all coaches and MNSW staff. Committee / Board members, officials, team managers and promoters may be required to have a WWCC.
A WWCC is different from a Police Check as it provides ongoing monitoring for criminal offences for the duration of the validity of the check (five years) and can be carried across employment/volunteer positions.
Applying for a WWCC is relatively easy – Applications can be done online at www.kidsguardian.nsw.gov.au
