    Where: This is an online Event
    This event is being organised by Volunteer Scotland
    This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £20.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.

    Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.

    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Volunteer Scotland is hosting a series of Disclosure Services Training online courses. Training is free to voluntary organisations.

    This course combines with the online courses PVG Regulated Work and Referrals and Recruitment to provide a complete package of training on the PVG legislation and its operation for signatories but can also be undertaken by those who do not need to know all the details of the PVG legislation.

    It is also designed as a stand-alone course for people who hold responsibility within organisations for:

    • dealing with instances of harm to children and / or protected adults OR; 
    • the final stages of discipline OR;
    • governance.

    This training will cover the following topics:

    • Engaging staff/volunteers safely
    • What do staff/volunteers need to know
    • understanding 'harm' and 'risk of harm' in relation to the PVG Scheme;
    • referrals, listing and barring – people who are excluded from the Scheme;
    • the legal obligations you are under for making referrals under the PVG Scheme.
    • Resources available
