Any person in contact with children at an establishment should be vetted in terms of these three security clearances and if not, they may not work with children. There are three types of security clearances that need to be undertaken by persons working with children:
- Police Clearance Check
- Sexual Offenders Register Clearance; and
- Child Protection Register Check.
According to legislation, the Children’s Act (Act 38 of 2005) Section 126 states that ’employers offering services which allow for access to children must, before employing a person, establish from the Registrar of the National Children Protection Registers whether or not the potential employee’s name is on Part B of the National Protections Register. If the potential employee’s name appears on the register, he or she will not be allowed to work in an environment which allows for access to children, since persons whose name appear on the register have been found unsuitable to work with children by the court.’
It is suggested by the Council that staff engage with this process on an annual basis.
