If your production or activity includes children under school leaving age you may need a licence to ensure your child's safety and wellbeing are protected.

Productions and activities include:

  • television
  • theatre
  • modelling
  • sport

Before you apply

Applications must be received at least 21 days before the production takes place.

For amateur productions, where a group of children are not being paid for taking part, a body of persons approval can be sought instead of applying for individual licences.

For further information on the licence and when it is required, see Young Performers: A Guide for Parents and Guardians on gov.scot.
