Before I enrol

Working with Children Check (Blue Card)

All students in this program are REQUIRED to undergo the Working with Children Check and be issued with a Blue Card before they undertake work experience or placements in professional settings.

Blue Card applications must be submitted online by the student via the Queensland Government Blue Card Services website. There is no fee for a student Blue Card.

Immunisation

Students in this program may undertake placement in Queensland and New South Wales. As such, students are required to comply with both the Queensland Health Policy for Immunisation of Health Care Workers and the New South Wales Policy Directive for Occupational Assessment, Screening and Vaccination against Specified Infectious Diseases.

Before undertaking professional placements, all students must provide evidence of immunisation status to demonstrate compliance with Queensland Health and New South Wales Health policies as follows:

  • it is a mandatory requirement for all health care worker students to be vaccinated against the Hepatitis B Virus and provide serological evidence of immunity and
  • New South Wales Health requires health care worker students be immunised against Measles, Mumps and Rubella, Varicella Zoster virus, Diptheria, Tetanus, Pertussis and to undergo Tuberculosis screening.

In accordance with Queensland Health, NSW Health and Griffith Health policy, individuals infected with a blood-borne virus (Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV) must not undertake exposure prone procedures. Infected students are encouraged to seek counselling in relation to personal health measures and training and career issues.

It is the student's responsibility to meet any costs associated with compliance to the immunisation requirements. Please note that several months may be required to complete the prescribed courses of immunisation required for this program.

Professional placements

Students who are unable to provide documentary evidence of compliance or who have not otherwise met the placement requirements by specified deadlines will be ineligible to attend their placement. Therefore, these students will not be permitted to enrol in the relevant course or will be administratively withdrawn from that course. No academic or financial penalty will apply where a student's enrolment is withdrawn under these circumstances.

The University's professional placement requirements are consistent with current State and Federal requirements. Students must also comply with the requirements of the facility providing the placement. Additionally, there may be other requirements that must be met.

Professional placement requirements are subject to change. The University will endeavour to notify students within a reasonable timeframe of changes or additions to these requirements.
