* You are considered a 'volunteer' for the purpose of this Working with Vulnerable People (WWVP)/NDIS registration, therefore there is no cost to students.
The introduction of the Working with Vulnerable People (Background Checking) Act 2011 (the ACT) requires all students undertaking a clinical placement who may come in contact with 'vulnerable persons' in the ACT to undertake WWVP registration.
When attending a placement in the ACT you may be required to present your WWVP Registration Card. If you are unable to present your card, you may be asked to leave placement.
If you need to renew your WWVP during your studies, it is very important to apply before the expiry date of your current WWVP registration. If you do not renew before the expiry date, you will have to apply for a brand new card which may affect your placement.
If you do apply to renew your registration before the expiry date, your current WWVP registration will be extended by three months to cover the processing time of the application.
