Disclosure Services Training

It can be difficult to understand the PVG process.

We have split the process into the following four courses. Attending our courses will provide you with knowledge of the various aspects of PVG. Our training is free to voluntary organisations, however charges for non-attendance are detailed here.

  • PVG and Signatory training

    This full day course provides all you need to know to act as a signatory, with an introduction to the PVG legislation.

    As part of the Scotland Works for You work the VSDS team have created the 'Recruiting with Convictions' training sessions to help organisations in this process.

    During this training you will be given the opportunity to address any concerns you may have in recruiting a volunteer who has a criminal record, look at how you as a group can offer opportunities to those with convictions, understand how stereotyping can impact behaviours, create procedures for considering people with conviction information, plus much more.
