. What is a care giver?

. What is CAAW and who issues this?
CAAW stands for "Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation and Welfare". This Confirmation Letter is issued by the education provider if they are satisfied that an under 18 student will be living in an appropriate accommodation and has appointed a care giver.
. My child will be living in a homestay, does he still need a care giver?
Some education providers would approve a homestay as a care giver, however most institutions require the student to live in an approved accommodation as well as appointing an approved care giver. It also helps overcome the issue of a conflict of interest when a care giver is independent of school or homestay.
. What does a care giver do?
A care giver is responsible for an under 18 student's welfare, especially outside of school hours. A care giver needs to know the student's whereabouts at any time. Some education providers expect the students to obtain permission for any overnight stay including camps and interstate trips from their care giver while others are very strict in not allowing any overnight stay or interstate trips.
