6. Volunteer Reporting Obligations
As of 1 June 2022, there has been an important update to the Statutes Amendment Act 2021. The Act introduces important reforms regarding the legal obligations as a volunteer in the Department for Education. Please view a summary of these obligations below.
The Department for Education has COVID-19 safety measures in place for all volunteers. If you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have an approved medical exemption endorsed by the Chief Public Health Officer (or delegate) we need to sight your proof of vaccination. If not, you are still able to volunteer but must complete a rapid antigen test each morning before you volunteer and you must wear a surgical mask indoors at all times.
If you have any question please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jo McIntyre.
