A police vet is required of every person who:

  • is appointed, or is going to be be appointed to work in a paid or unpaid position at a centre during normal hours and is not a registered teacher or has limited authority teach.  A police vet must be applied for within 2 weeks of the person starting and the person must not have unsupervised access to children until a police vet is obtained.
  • is a contractor, or the employee of a contractor, who has or could have unsupervised access to children at the centre. The police vet must be obtained before the person starts.

(Note that registered teachers are police checked as part of the teacher registration process so this is something that the centre is not required to do)

2.  Every three years a further police vet must be conducted on the person.
