Event description

Description

Thank you for considering attending our Registered Body Workshop.

This interactive session is designed to help you in your role as a countersignatory. It will provide you with details of what you need to know under the Code of Practice and disclosure legislation, including the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007 and the Police Act 1997.

The workshop covers:

  • different types of disclosures and when you can use them
  • how to determine if a role is eligible for PVG
  • the disclosure process, including guidance on completing applications
  • Disclosure Scotland’s code of practice
  • when employers must refer individuals to Disclosure Scotland who have carried out harmful (or potentially harmful) behaviour
  • future developments within Disclosure Scotland
  • any questions you may have

Please click on the above links to access the pre-course reading material.

The workshop is free to attend and lunch and refreshments will be provided on the day. Please email dsworkshop@disclosurescotland.gov.scot ahead of the day if you have any dietary requirements.

Please note that workshops are limited to two people per organisation. If you feel a number of your organisation's countersignatories or colleagues involved in the disclosure or discilinary process staff would benefit from this training, Disclosure Scotland may be able to visit your workplace instead to deliver a bespoke workshop. If this is something you think you would be interested in, please contact our Customer Engagement Team via dsworkshop@disclosurescotland.gov.scot to discuss this possibility further.

We value your time and contribution and want to make sure everyone we have invited can participate freely. To ensure this we have confirmed our venue has:

  • a ramp/lift/step free access to the building and all necessary rooms we’d like you to use during your time with just
  • doorways which are a minimum 800 mm wide for wheelchair access to all required rooms
  • a disabled toilet facility

If there is anything we have not thought of or anything else you need us to provide so you can participate (for example signer, easy read documents, etc) please let us know and we will do our very best to provide these.
