Please note: Victorian Safety Screening Policy

    Under this policy, the prospective worker has to undergo proof of identity check and a Disability Worker Exclusion List check before they can start their placement with participants who have additional needs or the disability industry. Under the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC), applicants must now provide a minimum of four pieces of identification:
  • One commencement of identity document (such as a full Australian birth certificate or current Australian passport)
  • One primary use in the community document (such as a current Australian driver’s licence or marriage certificate)
  • Two secondary use in the community documents (such as a Medicare card or a credit card).
