National criminal history record checks/Working with children checks

Working With Children Checks are legislated in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia. These checks must be undertaken for community coach applicants as part of their probationary registration and registration renewal requirements. Forms can be accessed via the links below.

National Criminal History Record Checks (NCHRC) are undertaken by the Australian Sports Commission, via CrimTrac in Tasmania where community coach applicants are to deliver in states where there are no legislated requirement, if they do not have a current Working With Children Check from another Australian jurisdiction.

The National Criminal History Record Check Consent Form is to be used unless you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person living in a remote community, where you are to use the NCHRC Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Consent Form. Unless statutory obligations require otherwise, the information provided on the form will not be used without your prior consent for any purpose other than in relation to the assessment of your suitability.
