New students - Master of Teaching
Before you start
Working With Children Check
You must provide a Working With Children Check (WWCC) before you can go in to a school. As your first school placement is in your first session, you should start the WWCC process as soon as possible. If you do not provide a cleared WWCC before your placement, you cannot go in to a school and you will be unable to continue in the Master of Teaching.
As you will be a student on professional placement, you do not need to pay for the WWCC.
Go to the Office of the Children’s Guardian to start the process.
