Blue Card 2020


All children have a right to be safe and protected from harm. The Blue Card system regulates activities which are essential to Children’s lives, including education.

The Blue Card check is a national criminal history check and is a mandatory compliance item in education for all employment positions.

The Queensland Government’s Blue Card system is made up of 3 parts;
  • Screening
  • Ongoing monitoring
  • Risk management strategies.


The Blue Card system is under review with a “No Card, No Start” policy expected to apply from March/April 2020.

This means that paid Employees must hold a current Blue Card or be issued with a Blue Card before they can commence at the College.

Queensland Government’s Blue Card Services (BCS) have advised that they will be establishing a new online portal to streamline the Blue Card application process with the aim of reducing the processing timeframes and coordinating applications directly with individuals (meaning that the College will be less involved from a processing perspective).

As has already been the case and consistent with other registrations/certifications, for example, QCT Teacher registration, applying for and maintaining currency of your Blue Card is a personal professional obligation (including expenses).

If you have any questions on these upcoming changes or Blue Cards in general, you can contact Blue Card Services directly or email People & Culture.
