Working with Children Check

All casual academic staff who are employed to undertake teaching require a current Working with Children Check (WWCC) before they commence work.

Deakin University is required to meet Victorian Government legislation relating to child wellbeing and safety (‘child safe standards’), and as a result of this legislative requirement the University Executive made the decision that all current casual academic and professional staff whose roles involve the possible current or future contact with children and young people under 18 years (including oral, written or electronic communication) as part of their work will be required to provide the University with a current Employee Working with Children Check (WWCC).


If you would like to proceed with your application for a casual academic teaching position with the School of Information Technology, please apply apply online.
