increasing numbers of younger students and those individuals or groups who may be defined as “vulnerable” by virtue of age, health,
welfare or special need. With an increasing focus on youth in particular and the additional pastoral care this involves Ara Management
have determined that best practice involves all staff undergoing a criminal conviction history check. As part of the appointment, process
shortlisted candidates will be asked to give consent to Ara to submit a request. Offers of employment will be subject to the results of the
check. A regime of checking employees has been developed.

Core worker

may be youth, children, elderly or vulnerable adults. This position meets the criteria for a check under the Vulnerable Children’s
Act 2014 and as such, Ara will request a NZ Police Vet check disclosing your criminal conviction history.

12 Records Management

capture business activities, appropriately manage these records over time using line of business systems, approved institutional
