Anyone who works or volunteers with children in NSW must have a Working With Children (WWCC) clearance. This clearance is valid for five years. An Australian Police Check is a necessary step in obtaining a WWCC.

An employment history check is a safeguard for employers that there are no lies or exaggerations in the work experience or employment history of a candidate. 

The human resource or payroll department of previous employers will be contacted to confirm details like dates of employment, positions held, remuneration and reasons for leaving. Discrepancies about past achievements or responsibilities will be followed up. 

An academic qualifications check examines the name of the qualification, whether it was completed, the issuing institution, attendance and graduation dates.
