Now is the time to tell us what you think about the revised SSSC Codes of Practice for Social Service Workers and Employers (the Codes) as we launch our consultation today (14 April). All the responses will help us finalise the revised Codes to make sure they support your practice and professionalism and are fit for the future.
We’re working with the Scottish Government and other organisations including employers and trade unions in progressing fair work in social care and we’d like to hear your views on what ‘good and effective voice’ would look like for you.
Thank you to everyone who responded to our consultation on proposals to streamline and improve registration. These proposals are part of our Future Proofing Programme and include changes to the Register, our processes and the qualifications we accept for registration.
