Working with Children Checks

Checks on people working with children are to be toughened after the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal overturned rejections of a Check for applicants with serious histories of offending against children.  Obviously once you have served your time for an offence you are free to operate within the community. However, the Working With Children Checks are meant to protect children from predators or potential predators. 
It is extremely irritating for those of us who are required to obtain a Working With Children Check as a condition of work to find that people who have been found guilty of crimes against children are able to obtain a Check.  Either the Check is a serious matter or there is no point in it existing.
