I am curious, if you are from the UK, Canada, SA how long does the criminal check take? In the US it takes at least 8 weeks, or more.
So this means, unless a school hires someone with an APRC or Family-based ARC, their teacher will have to get a criminal check BEFORE they work there. Wow.
This almost makes me feel a little guilty for leaving my employer one month before semester starts. Almost.
