Child Safe Statement of Commitment

The Child Safe Standards apply to organisations providing services for children. As a charity “providing services to children”, ACHPER Victoria is considered a category 2 'in scope' organisation.

Primarily an association for teachers, ACHPER Victoria provides 1-2 activities for children each year limited to our VCE® student Exam Preparation workshops. Our Professional Learning team visit schools as consultants to teachers and for occasional projects, but are not engaged with instruction or care of students.

All ACHPER Victoria staff either hold a current Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) registration or current Working with Children Check.
