HR Requirements

There are some functions within the University of South Australia that are considered prescribed by the legislation such as sporting clubs and associations and the Smart School and staff will require a current working with children check as part of their employment in these areas.

The Department of Education and SA Health and Wellbeing also require a current Working with Children check for staff undertaking research or work in their sites or with their clients.

Staff engaged in prescribed functions  will be required to undergo child related employment screening through the Department for Human Services  to confirm their suitability to work with children.

 As and when necessary, the University’s People, Talent and Culture team will make contact with these individuals to clarify the legislative requirements, explain the associated procedures, and assist them to obtain a screening.
