Welcome to PSYV Online Training PlatformThere are different ways to view the PSYV learning platform, but we recommend using Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Safari for the best viewing experience.
The Initial Training Programme is the main point of entry to become a recognised Youth Volunteer with Police Scotland. There are three units to complete:
Unit 1: PSYV Induction
Unit 2: PSYV Standards
Unit 3: PSYV Operations
The purpose of this training is to make sure you know about PSYV, you have some basic knowledge of Police Scotland and you understand what is expected of you and what you should expect in your role as a Police Scotland Youth Volunteer.
After completing Module 1 you are now eligible to take part in volunteering duties. This module prepares you to plan for your initial volunteer experiences so that you are a safe and responsible member of the team. PSYV sessions continue to provide you with face to face training while you develop your portfolio of evidence and put into practise all the things you have learned in Module 1 and the new knowledge and skills you develop here in Module 2. There are three units to complete:
Unit 1: PSYV Knowledge & Skills Development
Unit 2: Preparing for Volunteering
Unit 3: Volunteering Experience
The purpose of this training is to make sure you are prepared to be a safe and responsible team member when you embark on your initial volunteer experiences. You carry out your initial experiences with support from an Adult Volunteer or Group Coordinator who will observe you in action. Meanwhile you will engage in face to face training that continues to develop your PSYV knowledge and skills that are useful to you in your voluntary work as well as at home school and wider life experiences.
