  • Students are required to obtain a voluntary worker ‘Working with Children Check’.
  • Students will be responsible for the costs of any such checks or any additional statutory requirements.
  • When beginning their training, students are encouraged to think about their work-placement. However, the first five in-class training sessions will provide students with the knowledge and understandings they will need to make a positive contribution to the classroom and the school environment. The work-placement provides students with an opportunity to put their new skills into practice.
