Working with Children Check Organisation Obligations

The Working with Children (WWC) Check is a compulsory screening strategy for people who engage in certain paid or unpaid work with children, described as ‘child-related work’ under the Working with Children (Criminal Record Checking) Act 2004 (WWC Act).  The WWC Screening Unit, Department of Communities administers the WWC Check in Western Australia (WA).

TRBWA Annual Fee Reminder

All registered teachers are required to pay the TRBWA annual fee of $90.50 by 31 March 2020. All registered teachers have been mailed a hardcopy invoice and will also receive an email explaining the purpose of the invoice, options and methods for payment, and penalties for a late or missed payment.

It is important to note that the TRBWA annual fee is a requirement that is distinct from other fees including the 'renewal and registration' fee. This means if a teacher's renewal of registration occurs during the annual fee collection process they will need to pay both fees.

Principals and administrators are able to check on the payment status of teachers at their school by logging on to TRBWA Online Services and selecting the TRIP tab, then reviewing the 'Annual Fee Due' column.

AEDC Online Professional Learning Opportunity and AISWA Support

Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) resource material developed in Western Australia in a collaboration between AISWA, Catholic Education of WA and Department of Education has been designed to help your school to engage with and build a deeper understanding of the AEDC data and its value to your school and community.

These resources link with the National Quality Standard, Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum, and how the AEDC can be used for evidence-based and evidence-informed planning within local community contexts. Electronic versions of the Engagement Kit's resources can be found below.

An AEDC online professional learning (OPL) course has also been developed and complements the resources. The course includes four 15 minute online learning modules that can be logged into by government and non-government schools, as well as early childhood education and care centres.

Barbara Bosich, AISWA Consultant - Early Childhood is available to assist you with analysis of your school data and to work with you to determine your response - email Barbara.
