PVG Signatory Training
When: 14:00 - 16:30, Wednesday 25 September 2019 Where: New Volunteer House, 16 East Fergus Place, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1XT This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action Costs 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 £25.00 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.
This is a comprehensive session which covers the main elements of the PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups 2007) Scheme.
The aim of this course is to build on your knowledge of the PVG legislation, to inform of recent updates, and to raise awareness of how to complete the necessary paperwork correctly. This is an in-depth look at PVG, and is designed only for those staff/trustees with responsibility for recruiting new volunteers/staff members.
