Working with Children Checks (WWCC) are background checks conducted in Australia for the purpose of determining an individual’s suitability in working with children and/or vulnerable people in the community.
While Working with Children Checks can only be obtained directly through the relevant state or territory government department, CVCheck can assist organisations with the onerous task of verifying the validity of their workforce’s WWCC cards via our online and on-demand platform.
No matter the size of your business, CVCheck can verify if your candidates are permitted to work with children by checking their Working with Children Check status to ensure your organisation only hires workers, contractors and volunteers with valid WWCC cards.
Let CVCheck verify the status of your candidates' Working with Children Check cards by sourcing the information directly from the relevant state authority and notifying you if any candidates do not have a valid card.
You can order checks through CVCheck with confidence and feel safe in the knowledge that we source our results directly from the relevant state government departments.

A Working with Children Check (WWCC) is a background screening check utilised across Australian states and territories to assess the criminal record of individuals employed or volunteering in child-related work to ensure they do not pose a risk to children and vulnerable people in the community.
A Working with Children Check is required if you engage in child-related work whether in an employed or volunteering capacity. Child-related work is when the usual duties of the work involve, or are likely to involve, contact with a child. Please refer to your relevant state or territory authority for examples of child-related work and any exemptions.
To obtain a Working with Children Check card you must apply directly through the relevant state or territory authority.
A Working with Children Check Status costs $32.89 including GST when you order directly from CVCheck.
Please refer to your relevant state or territory authority for the cost of obtaining a Working with Children Check where you live.
