Some PG placements and PG research programmes may require students to obtain a basic disclosure certificate or join the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme.
Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme (PVG) – Disclosure Scotland
Anyone seeking work with children or protected adults in either a paid or voluntary capacity must apply to join the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme. Applications for PVG Scheme membership are processed and assessed by Disclosure Scotland who provides this service on behalf of the Scottish Government as a means of enhancing security, public safety and protecting the vulnerable in society.
All the information that you require about the scheme is on the Scottish Government website.
