Working with Vulnerable People

New laws designed to reduce the likelihood of harm and create safer environments for all children and vulnerable people have been enacted in Tasmania. The Registration to Work with Vulnerable People Act 2013 (the Act) makes it compulsory for many people who associate with children and other vulnerable people to be registered to Work with Vulnerable People. To comply with the Act, Catholic Education in Tasmania (CET) requires School Support employees, volunteers and external providers to be registered to Work with Vulnerable People.

For further information about registration and the application process, please visit the Tasmanian Catholic Education Office website.


Vacant positions at Our Lady of Mercy are listed on and are also listed on the Tasmanian Catholic Education Office website.
