About the Event

This full-day workshop, centred around the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme, has been designed to provide you with an overview of the processes and criteria to help you navigate the disclosure process as easily as possible, whilst ensuring that you meet obligations under the PVG Act and Code of Practice.

Through a series of interactive presentations, Q&A sessions and group discussions, you will gain the following learning outcomes:

Key learning:

  • Understanding how to apply the legislative criteria for the various disclosure levels to roles within your organisation – including how to decide if a role is ‘regulated work’ (i.e. eligible for PVG)
  • Increasing your awareness of the legal obligation to refer to Disclosure Scotland – and why it matters
  • Being able to identify and remedy the common application errors they experience – helping you receive PVG certificates that little bit more quickly
  • Understanding how the PVG Scheme operates, including recent updates in legislation around the disclosure of spent conviction information.
