Over the coming weeks and months, additional training materials will be made available to help individuals and organisations plan for the introduction of the PVG Scheme. These will include a modular training package and an assessment tool to help employers to determine whether a post is within the scope of the PVG Scheme.
This presentation provides an overview of the PVG Scheme that is established by the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. The presentation, which includes slides and speakers notes, is designed to give organisations and those individuals who do regulated work for them a better understanding of the PVG Scheme.

The modules of the new PVG Scheme eLearning package, to help stakeholders have a better understanding of the Scheme, are now available (link above). These eLearning materials are again structured under the same 9 chapter headings as the Guidance Document and Overview Presentation for consistency and ease of use. The eLearning package is designed to lead people through to the parts of the PVG Scheme that they feel are most relevant to them, enabling them to take as much, or as little, information as they need for their own situation. There will be relevant information within each chapter, followed by a set of questions to test the user’s understanding of the content of that section.
