This year we’re introducing a new style of membership, so you can chose the level of benefits you need for your group.
You can download the new membership application form by clicking here. The form includes a full explanation of the new membership levels.
Here’s how to choose;
1* – just right if you want access to the SPTC website and resources, but know you don’t need the Information and Training sessions or membership-linked insurance. You can nominate a parent to SPTC’s board, too.
2* – ideal for groups who meet but don’t get involved in fundraising or social events, and need minimal access to Information and Training Sessions. Public Liability and Employer’ Liability insurance is part of this membership. Access to the Members’ area of the website is included, you can host one training session, and on-line training is included too. And you can nominate a parent to teacher to the board of SPTC.
3* – This level of membership is likely to suit most parent groups who run activities and up to five activity clubs or groups. As well as access to all of the benefits available with 2*, you will also benefit from a comprehensive package of membership-linked insurance benefits: Fidelity and money insurance; Personal Accident insurance cover for helpers; All Risks insurance cover for items you buy for the group or school, and Public Liability cover for up to five activity groups/clubs.
4* – Choose 4* if you want all of the benefits available under 3* and just a bit more! 4* includes Extended Public Liability for low-risk activities, and this year we’ve added two additional benefits too. If your group runs more than 5 activity clubs/groups you should chose 4* to get the additional Public Liability Insurance you need. And with this level of membership you can also make PVG applications (where you need to) through the highly experienced SPTC team. Plus, if you are planning any major events, you have access to the advice offered by our insurance broker.
About Disclosures, PVG membership and more…..
Many members come to SPTC for information and advice about how Disclosures affect them, what they need to do and how to use the PVG scheme for their volunteers.
From August we will be acting as an intermediary or Registered Body for our members, complementing the information service we have offered for years. We’ll help you get started, process your forms and provide advice, guidance and training, and deal with Disclosure Scotland on your behalf.
We think this is a great addition to our services for members, and should make life easier for you when it comes to the checking process.
