As an SSSC registrant it’s important to remember the Codes of Practice also apply to behaviour outside of work and we can investigate your fitness to practise if your suitability to work in social services is questioned.
We receive proportionately more fitness to practise referrals about workers in residential childcare more than any other part of our Register. Here we share some data about this and resources to help support you in your practice.
The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) is seeking views on their plans to create a Register for the future in a consultation launched today. They are proposing changes to the Register, processes and the qualifications accepted for registration.
Funding for the early implementation of the mandatory newly qualified social worker (NQSW) Supported Year is now available. All local authority, independent and third sector NQSW employers can apply for funding.
