Police Check and Working with Children Check
Prior to commencing a placement, students are required to obtain a police check. The Faculty of Health Work Integrated Learning Team utilised an online service called ‘Fit2Work’, and students will receive an email with instructions on how to apply. Students should not apply for a police check until they have received this email from Fit2Work.
Some organisations may also require students to obtain a Working with Children check if they will be working directly with children or families whilst on placement.
This is a core unit for the Graduate Certificate of Therapeutic Child Play, Graduate Diploma of Therapeutic Child Play and Master of Child Play Therapy that is designed to provide foundational knowledge of Child Play Therapy, including the therapeutic powers of play, various theoretical models and children’s behaviour and interactions which inform Child Play Therapy interventions. Case scenarios, such as analysing children’s play behaviour, will support learning about discipline-specific knowledge and translating this scientific knowledge into plain language. Students will integrate knowledge from an ethico-legal standpoint and apply it to working with children.
