Melbourne Polytechnic has students aged under 18 years, childcare centres located on campus, and hosts visiting children and young people. Melbourne Polytechnic aims to establish and maintain a child safe organisation where children and young people feel safe, valued, respected, encouraged and empowered to reach their full potential.
The Melbourne Polytechnic community is aware of the Victorian State mandatory reporting obligations and associated legislation and has policies and procedures that support compliance with the Child Safety Standards.
Melbourne Polytechnic is a TAFE Institute established under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006. It therefore complies with the Victorian Government Child Safe Standards as a Category 2 organisation pursuant to those standards.
