Assessment of the host organisation’s induction and supervision arrangements

The school must make sure that the host organisation will:

  • give the student an induction to the organisation and the workplace
  • provide a competent supervisor who will appropriately supervise the student to make sure the student does the tasks safely, and
  • make sure that staff members supervising the student has a valid Working with Children Check where the student is under 15 years of age, and 
  • give a copy of all required Working with Children Checks to the school before the placement begins

For further information on obtaining a Working with Children Check, visit Working with Children Check Victoria.
