Badges & Verification

WWCC & Verified Badges

What are they?

To build trust and integrity in Learnmate’s community, tutors can earn a WWCC badge on their profile by providing their current Working with Children Check (or equivalent) to Learnmate.

Being a teacher or tutor in Australia generally means working with children under the age of 18. To ensure the safety and wellbeing of young and vulnerable people in our community, Australia’s States and Territories require that tutors have a valid WWCC (or equivalent) in order to do paid or volunteer tutoring work.

Please note, this badge is provided based on point in time verification and you should always ensure you ask your tutor for a current copy of their WWCC (or equivalent) prior to commencing tutoring.

Tutors can also earn a Verified badge on Learnmate by providing a copy of an official transcript or documentation that verifies qualifications, academic history or the like stated on their profile.

Qualified Teacher & ATA Trained Badges

What are they?

In addition to a WWCC badge, tutors can earn an ATA Trained badge and Qualified Teacher badge on their profile by:

  • completing Learnmate’s Advanced Tutor Training course, which Learnmate created in conjunction with the Australian Tutoring Association; and
  • providing evidence of a valid teaching accreditation to Learnmate to verify.

Advice for Parents and Students

Ask a tutor for their check

You should always ask your tutor for a copy of their WWCC (or equivalent) before your first lesson to ensure your tutor is permitted to work with students under the age of 18. Most States and Territories provide a free online tool for you to verify the currency of a tutor’s check. Use Google to find the relevant tool in your State or Territory.

Safe environments & privacy

If lessons are to be in-person with your tutor, make sure you are comfortable meeting in the suggested meeting place and we recommend you don’t share your home or private address until you have built trust and a rapport with your tutor. Try to always meet where others are around.

If you’re engaging in online tutoring, it should never take place from a student or tutor’s bedroom and a student should always have the lesson on loudspeaker with a parent or guardian present or in earshot of the computer.
