Upcoming ERSDA PVG Events
Thursday 10 January 2019 - 00:00:00 in General

Upcoming ERSDA PVG Events
ERSDA have Williamwood High School booked for the next ERSDA PVG night on Tuesday 15th January, 2019. We have a classroom booked for the PVG’s (new and updates) from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. 

Please contact Alan Hay (ahay@brandsafway.com)or Lorraine Young (Lorraine135@hotmail.co.uk)to confirm your attendance so that we know how many are turning up. 

Further PVG nights will be put on through January (details nearer the time).  Note that club CPO's may also be in a position to be authorised signatories and sign off PVG's as required. Plus the Glasgow and Paisley leagues have combined PVG nights at Hampden that any coaches can attend (details on their website). It is now SYFA policy that no club official can operate on behalf of a club until they have completed the online wellbeing course and a PVG form or update AND received their PVG certificate from Disclosure Scotland. 

Note that PVG's are not league or club specific so if another league or club has a PVG meeting you can attend those if you let them know.  PVG requirements before attending a PVG meeting:- All officials have to register with SYFA via their online system before attending a PVG meeting. If a PVG form is submitted to Hampden for an official but they have not yet registered then their form will be destroyed.  Club officials completing forms MUST be registered on the SYFA Membership website and those officials must have validated their details in order that their form can be processed. 

Otherwise, those officials will need to complete another form once they are registered with SYFA. Once registered, a coach/official should be able to print off the PVG SYFA Official form (example in coaches documents) which should be completed & signed by the coach/official then countersigned by the club and club CPO. This form MUST be brought on the night duly completed. The league CPO/Alan Hay will sign the 'additional signatory' box once the PVG has been checked on the night.   

When officials are completing forms, the Club ID is acceptable.  They should also put the position that they will be holding within the club or team at E4 on the form but NOT Team Official.  

The following are a list of the positions which are acceptable for SYFA registration:- 
  • Assistant Coach 
  • Child Wellbeing and Protection Officer 
  • Club Helper 
  • Coach (for those with Level 1.2 or above) 
  • Coach Co-ordinator 
  • Digital Media 
  • First Aider (all first aiders MUST be checked against both the adults and children's lists and the applicant must cross both boxes on their form - checker on the night will advise). 
Anyone who is operating at CLUB COMMITTEE level only (i.e. Club Secretary; Chairman/Vice Chairman; Treasurer; Minute Secretary; Club Fundraiser  or Committee Member if that is their only position) are not subject to regulated work and therefore cannot be a member of the PVG Scheme. 

Documents required (photocopied documents are not acceptable):- 
1. Your Birth Certificate or Adoption Certificate or Passport. (If your passport is out of date or has been lost you MUST bring a note of the Passport Number). 
2. Your Driving Licence. (If your Driving Licence is out of date or has been lost you MUST bring a note of the Driving Licence Number). If you do not have a passport or new style driving licence you MUST bring another form of photographic identity.    
3. A note of your National Insurance Number. 
4. Utility Bill or Bank Statement or other proof of your current address. (must be less than 3 months old).
5. Your address history including postcode for last 5 years plus 'resident from' dates. 
6. A note of any previous or current PVG Membership Number (number with 16 digits on left of certificate). If you are unsure whether you are a member of the PVG Scheme, then please call the Disclosure Scotland helpdesk on 03000 0200 040. You will need your date of birth and mother's maiden name. 
  
If you do not have a passport or new style driving licence you MUST bring another form of photographic identity. NB If you do not bring the required documents your PVG Application Form WILL NOT be submitted.  Please also bring A BLACK OR BLUE INK PEN.

Registration guidelines for 2019
Good Afternoon,   Shown in the documents section and below are the registration guidelines for the 2019 season    (small-sided games). Please ensure to read these carefully and pass onto any other relevant officials at your club who may be involved in the registration process. Also attached are guides on amending system user permissions and booking onto the e-learning course.If your club/league is not involved with development football, you can ignore this email. 
• League registration for the 2019 season is now open. 
• Club registration for the 2019 season opens on 22nd December 2018.                                                                                          
• Team registration for the 2019 season open on 3rd January 2019. 
• Teams will not be able to register until their club has successfully completed their 2019 membership. • All registrations must be completed via the SFA Live system 
• Club membership is a simple process and is free of charge. 

Club secretaries should check their list of officials and admin contacts are up to date (removing anyone who is no longer with the club). They should then go to the Membership tab to read and acknowledge the rules of membership and finish their registration. 

• On the 31st December 2018, all team officials will be removed from their respective teams and placed onto a list of club officials. It will then be the responsibility of the club secretary to place team secretaries into their respective teams and ensure they have full access to their team so that they in turn can select the required team officials. 
• ‘Team Official’ is no longer an accepted role on the system and therefore anyone listed as such should be amended to an accepted role. 
• A guide on how to check and change System User permissions is attached. This should be consulted when altering officials’ permissions.
 It will not be possible to place any officials who do not have PVGs with the SYFA into teams. 
• It will not be possible to place any officials who have not completed the e-learning course ‘Children's Wellbeing in Scottish Football’ or PVG into teams. 
• Any individuals who have not completed the e-learning course and require help on how to do so should go to the Child Protection section of the SYFA website (www.scottishyouthfa.co.uk) and read the information under ‘SYFA Online Protection Training’. A guide is also attached to this email. 
• Any officials experiencing technical difficulties with the online course itself (i.e. password problems or issues on completion) should email Cwsfonlinesupport@scottishfa.co.uk with their name, date of birth and a brief description of the problem. 

Kind regards, Florence Witherow,National Secretary Scottish Youth FA.
