Our Registration Rules (the Rules) have been updated. The Rules set out how we go about registering people working in social services.
There are changes that may affect you.
- We are changing how we communicate with you. The biggest change you will notice is that from 1 April 2016, we will stop sending your fee invoices by post and we’ll send them by email instead.
- There is a change to the fee for assessing non-UK qualifications for social service workers with European Economic Area (EEA) recognition rights. The fee has changed from £125 to £320. If the qualification is assessed as not being equivalent to our criteria, some applicants can then opt to take an aptitude test for which we are introducing a charge of £640 for function-based register parts and £790 for social work tests.
