Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme
The Scottish Government introduced the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme on 28 February 2011. From this date anyone seeking work with children or protected adults has to apply to join the Scheme in order to be eligible to take up a post either in a paid or voluntary capacity. Applications for PVG Scheme membership are processed and assessed by Disclosure Scotland who provides this service as a means of enhancing security, public safety and protecting the vulnerable in society. PVG Scheme membership is a requirement of registration with the General Teaching Council of Scotland and for entry on to Initial Teacher Education, Childhood Practice and Community Education programmes.
