It is intended that all individuals doing regulated work in Scotland should eventually become PVG Scheme members. Individuals recruited into new positions involving regulated work after the PVG Act comes into force should be asked to become PVG Scheme members so, over time, more and more people will join. However, there are many individuals who will already be doing regulated work when the PVG Scheme is launched and these people too will eventually join the PVG Scheme. This process of checking existing workers and bringing them into the PVG Scheme is known as retrospective checking.
The module covers the following areas:
- Who should join and when?
- What happens to existing workers who are barred?
- Retrospective checking
It should take 15 minutes to complete.
