Applying for Working with Children Checks


If you wish to be part of the MSA Volunteering team, you must have a Working With Children Check (WWCC). This is a requirement due to the diverse nature of the Monash community. Applying for a volunteer WWCC is free.

You can apply for a WWCC by submitting an online application through the WWCC website. Part of the application process requires proof of identity so make sure you have identity documents like your birth certificate, immigration card, passport or student ID readily available.

Already have an active WWCC?

Please sign in through the WWCC and register MSA and Monash University as additional organisations.

A step-by-step guide to submitting a WWCC application

  • Step 1
    • Make sure you head to the WWCC Victoria website. There are other WWCC websites for other Australian states and territories. You should apply for a Victorian one to be eligible to participate in MSA volunteer opportunities.
    • Fill out the relevant details.
    • Remember to select ‘volunteer’ in the ‘Type of application’ step.
    • You will be asked to nominate a primary organisation for your WWCC to be linked to. You will need a postal address and contact number. Please use the following information to fill out this section:
      • Name of Primary Organisation: Monash Student Association Inc. - MSA Volunteering
      • Postal address: Level 1, Campus Centre, 21 Chancellors Walk
      • Suburb: Clayton
      • State: Victoria
      • Postcode: 3800
      • Phone: (03) 9905 3138
      • Lodge your online application. Once you have completed your online application, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to finalise your application at Australia Post.
  • Step 2
    • Print out your online application or wait for it to arrive in the mail.
  • Step 3
    • Take your application and identity documents to a participating Australia Post outlet.
    • You will have your photo taken as part of the application lodgement process.
    • Finish your application at the Australia Post outlet.
  • Step 4
    • Wait for the outcome of your WWCC.
    • In a few weeks, the Department Of Justice will inform you and the Volunteer Coordinator whether your WWCC was successful. If you do not receive a WWCC during this time, please contact the Department Of Justice and please notify the MSA Volunteer Coordinator about the delay.
