Coach Licence FAQ’s
What is a PVG?
The Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) membership scheme is managed and delivered by Disclosure Scotland. It helps make sure people whose behaviour makes them unsuitable to work with children, can’t do ‘regulated work’ with this group.
How do I know if I have a PVG?
If you are unsure if you have a PVG membership and cannot find a membership number you can call Disclosure Scotland on 0300 020 0040 to find out.
What age is considered as a child?
Within sport in Scotland a child is considered to be anyone under the age of 18 years.
How do I know if I have a valid Coach Licence
All licenced coaches are issued with an electronic coach licence that they will be able to show you if required. You can also check who holds a valid Coach Licence by contacting Scottish Squash with the name of the coach.
