We have an experienced staff team with sessional staff working on the introductory “ Pathways to Playwork”. The staff are all registered with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) who are responsible for registering people who work in Social Services and regulating their education and training.
We have recruited staff following safe recruitment procedures and are members of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme (PVG) that replaces the previous Disclosure scheme for adults working with children. We all undergo regular training such as First Aid, Food Hygiene, Child Protection and Playwork theories as well as specialist training for supporting children with additional support needs.
