3153. Hon Alison Xamon to the Minister for Education and Training:
(1) Does the Department keep records of Working with Children Check (WWCC) cards of instrumental teachers and other peripatetic staff who give private lessons in schools?
(2) If no to (1), why not?
(3) If yes to (1), do all peripatetic teachers have a valid WWCC card or application inprogress?
(4) If no to (3), why not?
Hon Sue Ellery replied:
(1)–(4) Yes. The Department keeps records of WWCC cards centrally and at a local level, as per the relevant policies and procedures.
