Vulnerable Children Act 2014 : Guidelines for compliance in universities

10 December 2015 | publications

The Vulnerable Children Act 2014 : Guidelines for compliance in universities (365KB; 13 pages) publication has been developed by a pan-university Working Group convened by Distinguished Professor Ian Reid. They have worked with officials from key Government agencies responsible for the implementation and operation of the Act.  The guidelines have been endorsed by these agencies as meeting legislative requirements.

The guidelines outline the requirements of the Act for the university sector.  Individual universities may exceed these requirements and faculties within universities may need to develop particular processes above and beyond these requirements to address other requirements of their discipline.

Individual universities will now operationalise these requirements.
