Your role would involve transporting children and young people to and from various locations across Fife (Children would be supervised). This essential role will enable children to take part in school sport competitions. The applicant will have experience in driving mini buses; have a clean licence for 5 years and have D1 on their licence. A mini bus driving assessment would be required to be issued with the MIDAS certificate. If you already hold a MIDAS Certificate or have an HGV on your licence, an authorisation card would automatically be issued. No assessment is required. The volunteer will also be required to be registered to PVG (Disclosure Scotland). If the volunteer is not registered then Active Schools can pay for the registration.
