The UK and Scottish coronavirus legislation include some important changes for social service regulation so we can support the workforce to keep on delivering high quality services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We recognise that the social service sector is on the frontline of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and we want to support you to continue to deliver your vital work during this challenging time. As you need to change your services to meet demand, we’ve agreed regulatory changes with Scottish Government to enable an effective response by services. These are effective from today (18 March 2020).
Did you miss the deadline for support workers in care at home and housing support services to get their registration applications to us on 13 December? If you did our frequently asked questions will help with what to do next.
We’re making good progress with the review of our post registration training and learning (PRTL) process. The feedback on the current process and experience of registrants will help us design a new approach that meets the needs of an increasingly diverse workforce.
