Team assistant registration 2021

Team assistant registration due date

All CyberTaipan team assistant registrations are due by 5pm AEST Friday, 30 April 2021.

Team assistants support and encourage teams, assist with scheduling, set-up, snacks, and transportation. Team assistants are required to register and successfully complete a Working with Children Check (or equivalent) and a National Police Check.

Working with Children Checks

A valid Working with Children Check is required for all team coaches, assistants and technical mentors. Legislation around these checks are slightly different in each state. You may know this check as a 'Working with Vulnerable People Registration' (ACT), or a 'Blue Card' (QLD). Information on these checks and the requirements needed to fulfil them can be found on the Australian Institute of Family Studies website .

National Police Check

Information on these checks and the requirements needed to fulfil them can be found on the Australian Federal Police website .

Administration and evaluation of CyberTaipan

CSIRO will be evaluating the CyberTaipan competition. As part of the evaluation CSIRO will use your registration data to review program participation. CSIRO will also invite you after completion of the competition to participate in a voluntary online survey to provide feedback about your experience.
