The Physical Education Scotland Quality Mark scheme is a club accreditation programme that allows clubs to be recognised for the quality of their work in Sport and sports coaching. The award has three classifications, Gold, Silver and Bronze. Sports clubs who apply to the scheme must demonstrate their ability against a set of criteria which includes sections on Governance, Community Engagement, Child Protection and delivery. Clubs must submit evidence that they meet the criteria through our online application portal. Physical Education Scotland staff will then review the application and grant the award level that is appropriate. Clubs are then notified of their award level, this comes with detailed feedback on strengths as well as possible development areas. Physical Education Scotland will then work towards helping clubs achieve gold status. Clubs can use the award logos on their material once achieved, showing the community their commitment to providing high-quality coaching in their club.

Recruitment

Submitted by admin on Thu, 23 Nov 2017 - 12:04

Physical Education Scotland runs a continuous recruitment campaign for sports coaches throughout the year in all areas of Scotland. As clubs join our club development programme, we are often asked to help source or provide coaches. Through our dedicated recruitment website, we receive applications via our applicant portal, our HR team and managers will then shortlist and interview selected candidates as well as carry out any necessary checks on qualifications and references. After these have been verified a PVG check will be requested, all staff that work with Physical Education Scotland are required to undergo a full PVG check prior to placement. We will then match suitable candidates to our partners that require coaches, we also notify candidates in our coach bank of other sport related jobs in their areas. PES also recruits for a number of internal roles within our organisation.

Protection of Vulnerable Groups scheme (PVG)

Submitted by admin on Thu, 23 Nov 2017 - 12:05

Physical Education Scotland provides a PVG application service to its member organisations and the individuals affiliated with our members. In February 2011, the Scottish Government introduced a membership scheme to improve disclosure arrangements for people who work with vulnerable groups.

The PVG Scheme is managed and delivered by Disclosure Scotland which, as an executive agency of the Scottish Government, has taken on additional responsibilities. These include taking decisions, on behalf of Scottish Ministers, about who should be barred from working with vulnerable groups. The PVG scheme helps to ensure that those who have regular contact with children and protected adults, through paid and unpaid work, do not have a known history of harmful behaviour.

Physical Education Scotland can carry out PVG membership applications, PVG update applications as well as Police Act/Enhanced Disclosure applications. There are two options for carrying out the checks, The first is an online form where you can submit the relevant details and ID check documents. After the online form is completed You will be sent an application form to sign and send back. Once the application fee is received, your application will be processed. The second option is that you can request an application form to be sent out to you, you then fill it in and return the form with the relevant ID. Once the application fee is received then you application will be processed.

For more information and to apply for a check, please visit the PVG check page under the jobs section.
